My sympathies go out to you and your family. Life is a process, and like other processes, the time invested means more than the time it takes.

My sympathy in your family's bereavement -supporting each other in this time is so much more important than A to Z. Your image captures the tenacity you'll need in the days ahead. All the best.

I'm so sorry to hear of your family's loss. Definitely take the time away that you need.
Sincere Condolences to you and your family.
I have always believed that the journey is the destination itself 😀
I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's sister. My sympathies to you and your family.
As for your post: it's the same as that saying about the journey being more important than the destination. The snail is perfect for that sentiment. If you run and fall on your face, you may never even get there in the first place. If you enjoy the ride, you will be happy every day until you get there.

Sorry about your loss, Damyanti. I'll light a candle for all of your family.
My sympathies to you and your family.
We'll keep your family in our prayers.
So sorry to hear about your loss. Your family is more important. See you when you get back.
JO ON FOOD, MY TRAVELS AND A SCENT OF CHOCOLATE
My thoughts are with you. One of the reasons I prefer rail travel is the added sights of the journey- you see so much of the "backyards" of cities, as well as abandoned buildings, historic structures, etc.
You could even apply it to life's journey. I am so sorry for your loss.
I though that quote might apply to today's airlines, since they've taken the fun out of flying, but the idea of not arriving stopped me. Thoughts of sitting on the tarmac or worse. Hmmm. Other than that, the picture is beautiful!
I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's sister. I wish you and your family peace and comfort during this difficult time.
…Your quote spotlights the journey over the destination, something useful for writers with publishing ambitions to think about.
Lovely image to fit the sentiment. Please do not worry about being online for now!
My condolences to you and your family. I have a post coming on my travel blog that says basically it's not just the destination but the journey that matters. Think we're thinking alike.
You are most certainly correct, it is in the journey/travel that we learn and observe. Thank you for the beautiful thought provoking post again.
Beautiful thought. Take care of you, Damyanti! Be well.
It certainly looks like he's traveling well. That shell is beautiful.
Damy, you just focus on your family.
Journey that matters.
Nice image that goes with it
oh damyanti. Sorry to hear about your family's loss. sending healing thoughts your way.
Lovely picture…take care again.
My condolences. We recently took a long trip and it was better to arrive in that case. But often the travel is the best part
You've been sharing some lovely photos Damy.
It's always the journey that counts. Sorry to hear about your husband's sister. Take care.
My sympathies again, Damyanthi.
Such a beautiful thought.
True, the journey is more important than the destination!!
Sorry for your loss. Take care!
I'm sorry to hear about your husband's sister! Praying! Also, that picture is so inspiring. Do whatever it takes to get where you know you need to be. Also– "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!" (Philippians 4:13)

It just makes me think about the old adage of how the journey is more important than the destination itself.
Love the image and it fits the quote perfectly.
