Whatever he sees fit is what it shall be!

I am one that has definitely had her fair share of problems throughout my life.  Through it all, I always find what helps me more than anything is dropping to my knees (I can't do that to much now so I simply just close my eyes wherever I am) and praying to my Lord and Savior.   He is always on time and is always his time.  I cannot express to you how blessed I feel to have him in my heart and life.  Especially through all the rough patches in this road I'm traveling called life. 

My consistent challenge is that I have to continue to place my worries at his feet because he always fixes whatever my issues may be.  Like the adage says "If your going to pray why worry and if you are going to worry why pray".

We are having another challenge it is a new month and money is tight.  I am truly ready to just sell everything and find a trailer that my family and I can live in.  But I have to be realistic.  It is not realistic for us to do that right now.  If it is God will make sure it falls into place.  I have to quit intervening in what he sees is right and necessary for me and my family. 

Physically we are just not in the best of health.  My husband and I are impacted with all types of health issues and the only way we would possibly be able to afford a trailer is to get one that we would have to totally rehab.  That is truly where my heart is anyway. I would like to acquire a toyhauler or fifth wheel or something along those lines that we can completely turn into our needs and desires.  Being computer geeks it is more important for us to have a long desk that my husband and I can share more than it is for us to have a dinette set that he and I probably wouldn't even be able to fit in.

All I can do is pray about it and whatever he sees fit is what it shall be.

Reviews Schmooze!!!

Well obviously not be on the road I will not be able to review any campgrounds or anything of that nature.  So I guess with this page I'm going to have to get a little creative.  Well I can certainly go with the standard Coming Soon in the meantime!!!

Wow It's coming along!!!

Well I must say my little blog is coming along. I now officially have an events page. Truth be told I think my events page is more about me having virtual way of  keeping track of what I may think are cool events around the country. Who knows next year I might actually be able to attend a few events. Me being so eclectic I am sure there will be every type of event known to man, which is ok with me. I hope that you enjoy my collection as much as I think I will!!!

You know it is truly amazing when you know in your heart that you have achieved greatness.  I feel that way about my now 17 year old daughter.  She is such an amazing young woman, truly the best kid a mother can ask for and now even a better friend than anyone could ask for.

After receiving the negativity that I received from that friend of 25 plus years, it was such a switch for me when my daughter came to me last night and said "I wish we had a rv now so we could like go on a trip next week while I'm on fall break and get some of the kinks worked out".  I looked at her with such awe and thanked her for supporting me and not making me feel crazy for wanting to full time.  She said "Mommy, I think it's awesome what you guys are doing and it's going to be great for you".

I have always had faith that as long as I kept my eye on the prize and raised my child with good morale's that she would be an amazing person.  Well that I see has definitely occurred.

I have read about so many different couples and families beginning their new journey I just need to keep the faith that my turn will come around sooner than I think.

The perspective of Security.......

I spoke with an old friend of more than 25 years today and I love the fact that she never lets me down in reminding me of why so much time transpires between our conversations. 

See my friend is one of those individuals that will be in her box (what she calls security) and will always stay in her box and thinks you should be in a box and that you should stay in your box.  The thought or idea of even trying something different, new, or non-conforming is completely out of the question. Security by her definition is living in a 2 bedroom apartment, having continuous light bill, cable bill, grocery bill, with car note and insurance.  And all of those things are fine if they are what you want out of life and they make you happy. 

My husband and I have decided that if we are going to have those things that at least we can see the country as a perk.  We work from home so there is no reason we can't work from a trailer.  I mentioned to her with all of the excitement and hope of support that I could muster, about our plans to see the country and become full time rvers only to be let down by her usual negative thoughts, statements, and questions.  Such as "I need to have security in my life" Security?  Whose to say there is no security in being a full time rver.  I love it when people have an opinion about things that they are not fully educated on.  It felt good to be able to share and show the knowledge I have acquired from just the little time of researching that I have done. 

The one thing about me that is very apparent, is that I am not someone that simply jumps into something without weighing all of the options, understanding the verbiage, and doing tons of research.  You would think after 25 plus years of friendship this friend would know this about me and know that this is where my "SECURITY" lies!

It's official I'm a RV Blog Hoarder.........

According to Wikipedia Hoarding is a pattern of behavior that is characterized by the excessive acquisition of and inability or unwillingness to discard large quantities of objects that would seemingly qualify as useless or without value.

It is official I have become a hoarder of RV blogs and websites - mostly blogs, at least it's digital right? ;o). Why hoarder? I say hoarder because my collection of RV blogs has gone beyond the scope of gathering a few blogs to read.  Every time I go to an RV blog and I see their list of blogs they follow I can't help myself I have to go their blogs and then so and so on...... I end up in this endless vat of RV blogs where people are jolly about their  location, their rig, the people and it never ends .....arrrrrrrrrggghhhhh.

 But I wouldn't have it any other way.  I love the fact that I can live through the experiences of others until I am able to share my own.  As long as full rvers are out there sharing their day to day I'm going to be a hoarding, reading, admiring, wanab ;o)
