Long time no write I know…..I intended on doing my first every vlog (video blog post) get it? :) But maybe next time….
I’m in SC presently…today I was reminiscing over the few weeks of our journey since leaving home. It suddenly dawned on me….once again…that for all the trouble, bumps, and uncertain bends in my road lately, I have had the most unexpected blessings, joys, and treasured moments that I will treasure forever.
For starters….who woulda thunk last week my brother and I would be sitting on the beach together having a picnic and sharing life stories.
Or that my super awesome sister –n-law and I would be buying matching outfits and boggles together. :) Or that I would share the funniest of all bathtub episodes with my toddler twin nephews. Or that I would make new friends who inspire me….and meet up expectantly with old ones…that my kids could make me so proud in moments of discomfort….I am blessed!
And then I look further back to previous bumps and bends before we “settled” in NY and I can again count my blessing and joys…like the time God fed us for three days on a greyhound across the country when someone had stolen my wallet. Or meeting the most interesting RVer’s, to include the lady who walked her seven cats, when we lived in a teenie cabin on a campground in Washington. Or the many people put in my path who have encouraged me, inspired me, and challenged me….you know who you are…You are loved and will be greatly missed…. There’s so many I could write about….
Never begrudge or complain about the journey you are on in life….I believe everything has a purpose….you never know where those bumps or bends will lead you…I think you’ll be surprised at the opportunities these inconviences can bring you …if you LOOK for them…and when they come you’re way, EMBRACE them and CHERISH them…time waits for no one…it passes quickly …..and all we’re left with is memories!
