“Life is a highway” ― Rascal Flatts

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” ― Ernest Hemingway

“All that glitters is not gold and not all those who wander are lost.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“Wouldn’t take nothing for my journey now.” ― Maya Angelou

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference” ― Robert Frost

“Are we there yet” ― Bart Simpson, The Simpsons

There must be hundreds of eloquent quotes about life being a journey and how we should appreciate the journey because the journey is what is really important after all. Personally my favorite quote comes from my buddy Bart Simpson. I am not sure if you have ever seen the episode of the Simpsons but it involves a long road trip with Lisa and Bart constantly peppering their parents with the dreaded “Are we there yet?” What makes it even more funny is that Marge and Homer are barely out of the driveway when the Lisa and Bart start in ― “Are we there yet?” There are probably as many eloquent quotes out there about patience. “Patience is a virtue” they say.

Harmony’s decision to purchase and renovate Montvale has taught us a lot about patience and enjoying the journey. Has it happened as quickly as we have wanted? No. Are things unfolding differently than we originally thought? Absolutely! Yet I cannot help but be filled with hope and excitement as I see the renovations slowly occur at Montvale.

Are we there yet? No. But it sure has been an interesting ride.
