Nope, Not Disappointing At All!

So, I decided to head back over to the Mall of America RV area to make breakfast and start my day.  As I sat down with a nice hot cup of java, this is what was in front of me! Coffee and a good laugh – – can I ask for anything more?!?

More often than not, very few words are needed to relay an immense message. Try this today, and discover a new level of inner peace.

Be Still

There is truly something to be said for being in a quiet place… In a place where you’re able to just stand still and see the glory of God! That’s where I am today – – feeling nothing but peace, love and joy I don’t have much to say in this entry, but I do want to share my two latest RV acquisitions that speak multitudes (I can’t wait to hang them ,) as well as a video that reminds us all to just slow down! Ride the waves today and let the Spirit guide you!

Always Blessings, Never Losses

ALWAYS BLESSINGS, NEVER LOSSES…I’ve really grasped this idea and it has helped me through seemingly innumerable life situations over the past several months.  It is my hope that anyone experiencing, “life” today will adopt this phrase as well.  Put it on your mirror, make a bookmark, jot it in your Bible – – whatever it takes to remember that there is definitely a silver lining in every cloud.

I’m personally thinking of my grandmother, my uncle and two of my best friends, Lynn and Shawn that I’ve lost (but heaven gained) over the past year.  I’m still missing each of them, but I’m smiling because I was so blessed to have shared life and great times with them all!


This is one of my favorite songs by Cindy Campo – – I hope you enjoy it, as well!

Feeling All Campy!


Today, I made one more visit to the dealership where my rig is located.  I needed to take a few more measurements to ensure that I have scaled down enough to fit my things in the storage or “basement” areas of the RV.  To my extreme pleasure, everything that I am keeping will fit just fine with a bit of room to spare!

Knowing that I had achieved my storage goals, I ventured down the road a couple of miles to Camping World. My purpose was to get the final quote on the after market add-ons that I will need to fulltime comfortably – – these include solar panels, rear and side cameras, in-motion satellite and a winterization package.  I was ecstatic when I discovered that the final cost would be a few hundred dollars under what I estimated!

After receiving the good news, I couldn’t resist exploring all of the goodies that Camping World has to offer – – so many items that will be useful and help to stay organized in the motorhome, but also, dozens of items that I could have been using in my brick and mortar homes to keep things as tidy as I like to keep them.  Who knew?!?  Well, any-who, I picked up a couple of small items that I couldn’t resist and made my way to the counter…

The gentleman at the register asked if I was, “a member.” Trying not to sound like a rookie, I said, “I’m a Good Sam’s member.”  This was the answer he was looking for – – whew! I went on to tell him that I didn’t have my card with me and he asked for my phone number.  Voilà – – there I was in the computer!  Somehow, that made me feel like a kid in a candy store even moreso when I saved a few bucks with the members only discount – – all official and stuff – – LOL!

My Lola and I left the store and headed to our now temporary domicile.  Today was definitely a great day! I’m no longer taking baby steps toward the goal – – I’m now in a full sprint and the finish line (or starting line, depending how you look at it,) is in clear sight!
