Friday the 13th–Our Lucky Day!!–June 13, 2014
Hi, this is Bill, remember me… I used to write the blog.
Somehow, I dumped that job on Nancy ;o))
But today, I decided to just reflect on things for a moment.
Today is Friday the 13th!!
For superstitious people, that ‘s usually not a good day.
However, for Nancy and I, it’s a GREAT Day :o))
Today is our 44th Wedding Anniversary!!!
Nancy’s favorite number has always been 13.
Here we are at Buck Hall Campground and guess what site we are on… YEP, site 13! We left Huntington Beach on Wednesday where our site was 132 and our next stop is Myrtle Beach State Park where our site is 313!! Hmm… I’m starting to see a pattern;o)
As I reflect back on our wonderful marriage,
we have called 18 places HOME,
we've been blessed with two great children & their spouse’s
and we've been able to enjoy many fun times with our four fabulous grandchildren!!
Andrew, the oldest grandson, at 13 is now bigger than I am!
In a few years, Daniel, Emily and Samantha will be passing us as well :o)
Yep, things keep changing!!!
We laugh when we think about some of the places we’ve called “Home!”
They have range from 250sqft to 4,000sqft and everything in between.
As Nancy always says,
“ Home is not the building, Home is where WE are!!”
Our current home, ‘Baby’ is our second Home on Wheels.
Our first Home on Wheels was a 30ft Sea Breeze 5th wheel back in 2000!!
WOW, that seems like just yesterday!!
Over the years, we’ve built three new houses… I mean had them built for us ;o)
One was on a large lake,
one in an exclusive gated community on the ocean
and one in the fishing capital of South Carolina.
All of those were “the House of our DREAMS!!”
However, our dreams changed along the way and we followed those new dreams:o))
We have learned that it really is about the JOURNEY, not the destination!!
Here we are, 44 years from saying our “I DO’s” and doing exactly what we want…
Traveling in our motorhome and enjoying our life as we have always done…
