Overcoming Fears





"Honey, the mean temperatures in Georgia in February are 34 and 55 degrees." Those do sound mean. Would the temperatures be higher if they were average? What's the difference between average and mean? A friend tells me about encountering black ice in Georgia in February.
Great.
The Little Woman looked pensive. Or is it a tenuous look? What's the difference between pensive and tenuous? Or pensive and average? "That sounds really cold."
Snow lays on the mountains above our house, a powdered sugar dusting on the brown hills.
The wind whips today, the chill cutting through fabric, reminding me we need good gear to travel. Got to find a good heater for the trailer.
As we plan (generally) what to visit in each state, I look at the mean temperatures. Summer and winter each contain challenges. and being on a bike and in a tent trailer, we're pretty much outdoors.
What if there is a death in the family? We would need to come back. But what about the house? If we rent it for a year, we have burned the bridge. No turning back. But my bright wife remembers. "We could stay at the cabin."
Cool. Even the word 'cool' sounds cold.
More planning, as we look for options to cater a launch party in April.
So much to do before we go, yet Christmas looms.
What did Jesus say? “So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
That is really cool. It still sounds like really cold.
