It’s going to be a long drive.

You may have come a long way, but there’s still a long stretch of highway ahead.

Some sections may be boring and you’ll wonder if you’re even making progress.

Occasionally, you will run low of fuel and need to fill up.

And often, a little voice from the back seat of your mind will ask, “Are we there yet?”

But you’re not there yet.

Not even close.

So today, allow me to encourage you to enjoy the journey.

To take in the sights along the way.

To check the map often to make sure that you’re on the right track, but don’t afraid of a few little detours.

Make sure that you have fun travelling companions.

And if you have to stop, don’t stop for too long.

Because, like it or not, it’s going to be a long drive.

But it will be worth it when you get there.
