Road Trip….First Stop…Chincoteague

I’ve been on this widow’s journey of mine almost 32 months now….A few weeks ago I embarked on another road trip…this one a solo trip back up to PA, my first time back since leaving there April 2017.

Knowing I wouldn’t be able to make the drive all in one day, I made a short 36 hour pit stop on Chincoteague…..the sunrises were there to welcome me back, as were our neighbors, who’s island cottage I’m blessed to call my home away from home……….

How Blessed a woman I am..to have called this place home..where I scattered Jim’s ashes and I can visit whenever I feel the need to

My favorite time of day ☀️

Front porching it ☕️

What a gift to spend time on the front porch with this guy…My Jim’s second best friend

Road Trip..Savannah..Cathedral of St. John the Baptist

With no itinerary or destination in mind, we hopped in the car and drove to Savannah just because we could. We ended up here. St. John the Baptist Cathedral

The photos really don’t do this beautiful church justice, nor can they capture the feelings that overcame us when we stepped inside 🙏

Road Trip…Charleston’s Angel Oak Tree 🌳

Back from a road trip..my first ‘girlfriend’s’ hit the road trip, reconnected with  a dear friend I haven’t seen in 13 years…our destination, Charleston, to visit the Angel Oak Tree. We had our own reasons for the visit…even with the changes the last 13 years have had on our own personal lives, we still fit 😊

Many people are struggling because they have not used what God has given them. God gives you an acorn; you invest it and it will become a tree! Stop praying for trees while acorns are lying all over the ground. God answered your prayer for the tree when He sent you the acorn. Your creative ideas are acorns from which mighty trees emerge. Your talent is given to you to be multiplied. ~TB~

Thankfully, I seem to be immune (she says while knocking on her head(wood!). So while cutting the grass for the first time this season, I’m enjoying my front yard blooms.
