TRAVELING DOWN THE EMOTIONAL HIGHWAY



Today’s the day that we begin our big adventure. And every emotion known to man is doing a dance inside of me right now. Guess this shouldn’t surprise me since I’m in the middle of a complete life-changing experience.

One minute my excitement is through the roof for what’s next. I can’t wait to get on the road and see what’s around the next bend. No doubt there’s lots to see and do (and write about) as we traverse this great country we live in.

Oh, but wait. While I’m doing my happy dance, thinking about all the sights we’ll see in our travels, another pesky emotion comes knocking at my door. Fear! You know what I’m talking about – that moment when crazy ideas overtake any form of logic.

In my case the fear of the unknown. “What if one of us kicks the bucket while we’re on this big adventure?” Yes, I hate to admit it but I do tend toward the macabre. But I’ve found a sure-fire solution to this problem. When my thinking takes a wrong turn I stop and PRAY. I find prayer wrangles my wandering thoughts and heads them back in the right direction.

Which then helps me with two more emotions I’m dealing with right now – sadness and happiness. Leaving Texas means I have to say goodbye to the dear friends I’ve made here in the Lone Star state. Even thinking of this makes me want to cry. BUT on the flip side I’m happy we’re making this change now since technology is everywhere. Facebook, blogs and email will help us stay connected with everyone anywhere our RV takes us.

So it’s with excitement, fear, sadness and happiness that we bid Texas and our friends  a fond farewell!! But remember, we aren’t going to lose touch ‘cause I’ll keep you posted on what Ray, Janetta and Maggie are up to!!!

Stay tuned….
