The last week has been difficult, to put it lightly. But with the help and support of marvelous friends, I survived! I know I am not alone in that regard. But more about that in another blog.
I have been truly blessed. In the last year I have made so many wonderful new friends via my transition to working and living full-time in my vintage 1978 Holiday Rambler Travel Trailer, this blog, clients, friends in the Giant Schnauzer and RVing communities, as well as my family and good friends of many years. As I think back over the last year, faces drift by like the scenery outside my window. What a year it has been. Full of celebrations of high and low moments and tears of happiness and sadness.
As so many face critical decisions during this holiday time, I wish for all one small moment of peace, love and tranquility. Reach out to those around you --- a kind word, a pat on the back, a smile --- you never know when such a simple gesture may mean the world to someone quietly struggling alone. Now is the time to come together as a community. Alone we are a small circle of life. Together are a springboard for hope.
Helen Keller said, "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing." My hope is that we can all live that life well.
