On our last day we picked up David’s mom, went to lunch, drove for a couple of hours and stopped for ice cream before taking her back to the assisted living center where she lives.
Oh, Paris…how do I begin to share what a glorious time we had? I’ve dreamed of visiting Paris since I was a little girl and David made my dream come true last week. I knew I’d love it but I wasn’t sure about David. He was doing this for me and I knew he’d do his best to make sure I had a good time. However, as an empath, I am keenly aware of his feelings and if he wasn’t enjoying the experience it would be harder for me to do so.
Fortunately he loved it! In fact, he’s already talking about our next trip and of buying the Rosetta Stone language learning program so we can really learn French. That was one of our biggest concerns but it needn’t have been. We started each conversation with a greeting in French and then everyone was more than happy to speak to us in English. And the people couldn’t have been more gracious. Forget everything you’ve heard about the rude French. We didn’t find that to be true in the slightest.
There is so much to tell that I’m going to do so in a series of posts…vignettes of sorts. But that will have to wait. Today I’m driving my mom to the city to pick up my aunt at the airport. I’m really looking forward to visiting with her over the next several days. So for now I’ll just say, à bientôt mes amis.
