Living today like it is your last

I think you will agree with me that life is fragile.  We all have heard of those scenarios where a loved one or friend receives the news of a sinister disease showing up unannounced and the doctor’s candid pronouncement.
 I remember one such real life scenario wrapped in an unforgettable day when my father received word that his body carried the incurable disease of Multiple Sclerosis.  His routine of playing basketball, softball and participating in hunting and fishing activities came to a screeching halt.  My father loved life and those who really were his life, his family.  The disease which altered his ability to climb mountains, throw a wicked fast pitch softball and shoot a floating jump shot has taken this courageous person from me.  However, it has not stolen the lessons learned from such a traumatic event. 
I wonder if he was here what he might share with me about living life.  Don’t misunderstand me, his zest for life was in no way squelched but I still must believe the conve…

Relaxing in Savannah, GA

Unscripted Plans...some people look at us as though we are on an eternal vacation.  Nothing about this RV lifestyle could be further from the truth.  While we are open to changes, fluctuations, relaxing when the opportunity arises, we work hard at planning.  We are not just sitting here in our RV vacationing.

Relax, enjoy, sit back, take it in...ah…

The Journey Continues

I am writing from the bank of the OgeecheeRiverCanal.  The arching trees form a shadowy canopy shrouding the river in glorious stillness.  Savannah, Georgia holds such storied history, art and architecture; another treasure which contributes to the mosaic of this great nation.
This blog finds us at our current location.  I want to bring all my readers up to speed by beginning with our arrival in the SunshineStateon November of 2010. 
The first leg of our unscripted journey landed us in the state of Florida.  Familiarity is healthy when considering such an undertaking as this.  Concerts of Hope was offered a place to stay by the Thomas family in DeLand, Florida.  Since we began our journey without a truck, an acquaintance towed our 5th wheel to their beautiful 10 acre farm.  The kindness of the Thomas family can never be fully measured as they made us feel so at home.  This word home is so meaningful when you’ve given up your brick and mortar home to live and travel in a fifth wheel RV…
