Happy New Year!! Sitting here reflecting on this past year, the places we have been, the beauty we have seen, the blessings we have received and the ups and downs we have experienced. Sometimes it is hard to see the good in the bad and to be thankful for the hard times. I’ve come to realize that with every down time in life a blessing has come out of it, but in the moment you feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You sit and pray and give it to God to take care of but you still end up worrying and stressing about it even though it honestly does no good. I know I am guilty of that. I am thankful for those times, it has made me a stronger person and I feel grateful that God has always been there for me even when I did not feel like he was. I honestly feel like he has put us in certain places to be a light, I used to question why but have learned to just go with it, we are on God’s path.
At first, I questioned our path and why God chose us to experience this way of life. However it became clear that he made us uniquely for this mission…we were never really settled, we enjoy the gypsy way of life, the traveling, meeting new people, seeing different sights everyday and making people smile. It is all about the experiences and love of what you do and we get to do it together. What a Blessing! There are times when negative may come about, the weather, things breaking on our vehicle, attitudes/feelings…it’s life, it happens. We just try to laugh about it instead of letting it get to us, sometimes we are able to and sometimes we are not. One thing is for sure, we always get through it.
