 I made this card tor a travel challenge at IO called "Are We There  Yet".  As I looked through my IO stamps and dies, I discovered I had nothing travel related.  Then I saw these birds and the die and  I thought about birds migrating.  As I continued to look,  I saw this sentiment and I was reminded of all the traveling I have done in my lifetime. Since my husband had a career in the USAF, we were constantly traveling and moving and I remember the goodbyes that we made to places, homes and friends.  Each move was bitter sweet because it hurt to say goodbye but at the same time the idea of new and exciting adventures pulled at my imagination, I was much like the bird that "paused in its flight" and rested and grew comfortable until the boughs beneath her give way, but when they do, she does not panic because experience has taught her not to fear but to sing because she has wings.  Venturing into the unknown takes courage sometimes, but what we would miss if we never left our comfort zone.
