Today I was suppose to board an airplane and be swooshed off to Oregon for the 52nd Annual Spanish Mustang Registry meeting. Things just didn’t mesh up right for me to go and it was becoming a struggle so I backed out of going. I am hoping everyone is having a grand time and that the meeting goes smoothly and productively. I hate that I won’t be meeting many folks especially those who are coming as far as from across the pond. Truly though I’ll miss everyone. Old friends and new.
I am thankful to Kathy Freymiller for jumping to the rescue for Pro. He is getting to start a new life too and have many new adventures with Kathy and her family. All is good. There a some truly angelic people in this world and Kathy is one of them! I’ll miss seeing you at the meeting Kathy, but my heart felt appreciation of you will be there right beside you.
I am thankful that I have this extra time now to finish packing up for my trip to Colorado. As of today I’m about 50% packed or ready to load up. By end of Friday the plan is to have everything ready to load up with the room that I rent cleaned or nearly cleaned. There is a bunch to do out in the horse yard. As soon as Pro is gone (Sunday coming up), I will get started removing panels raking out the area and fixing any fences that need work. Then Monday before I run off for the afternoon work-load, I want to make a trip to the dump. That will leave me with very little to do on Thursday before I leave except load the truck and do a last once over of the place. Last thing to load up will of course be my faithful computer. I want to make my Thankful Thursday blog post before the ISP shots off on the 25th.
I am so excited and thankful for this opportunity to start my life over. How many folks get to do that, or are brave enough to do it. I know I made excuses forever. It was so freeing once I said okay I can let go of the past and of what I have built and move onward with my future to build anew. How empowering. Of course I struggled for years on the letting go part. Yet I’ve learned that once you do opportunity presents itself and that sometimes you just have to hang on long enough for that opportunity to become available.
I am thankful also for all the wonderful people I have met on Twitter. The networking and support everyone gives one another is amazing. I’m hoping to build some long deep relationships with some of these folks. Just a nice place to hang out and enjoy human-kind.
What is so wonderful and what I am most thankful for today is my daughter and son-in-law. They are biting the bullet to welcome their mom (me) into their home, provide her with a job, and help her out with strategic planning. Just being there. They seem so happy to be able to do this. It speaks to the relationship we will enjoy for our lifetimes.
My daughter was the best thing that ever happened to me, and as full circles come around again and again she remains the best thing that has ever happened to me. She knows the origins, she knows the peaks and valleys, she knows family and the qualities that her ancestors instilled in her. She is a complete person. She married a complete man and they together have become a complete family. I am the proudest mom alive!
