It has been a very busy few weeks here, for many reasons, some of which I will reveal in the next blog. But, needless to say I have had circumstances that have got me thinking about how far I have come, and reason to celebrate. I have also had moments when life has reminded me what really matters, and to thank my blessings, no matter how “small ” others may feel they are.
And then, there has been a pleasant, unexpected surprise. Folks have been giving me money to put towards my Epic Irish Odyssey- this has been totally unexpected, and never asked for. This has resonated with me on at least 2 levels. On one level, it shows me once again, especially in these troubling times, that the world can be a pretty amazing place, and people are kind. On another level it shows me to believe in my dreams, and if I believe in my dreams, others will also and support it in whatever way they can. This really surprised me, and still does.
As I said, my budget for this trip is like the “Peanut butter and Jam” budget, but now There will be a few days where there will be cheese sandwich’s also- and I am so very grateful for this. These folks, as well as many others will be mentioned in my book I write about this trip…maybe they will be in the chapter titled ” The Cheese”
Stay tuned as this journey unfolds 🙂
