We have headed down the road once again, continuing our quest to see this beautiful country we call home. We are snuggled into a comfortable site in the panhandle of Florida at Blackwater River State Park. Although this is known as the Sunshine State, it seems the sun will be quite elusive for the next several days. No worries, as we are toasty within our little home on wheels, and feel blessed to be able to live this RV lifestyle.
Soon the final chapter of 2013 will be written, a year for us that included both great joy and challenges. Although we may not have had a “typical” year, we experienced much that provided valuable introspection and memories to last a lifetime.
In 2014 I look forward to reconnecting with the blogging community. Too often this year I felt the need to step away from blogging to deal with more pressing life issues. I look forward once again to having my life enriched with your stunning photography, suggestions for books to provide me hours of reading pleasure, travel destinations to dream upon, inspiring words that nurture my soul, technology to enhance our lives and great food suggestions.
Although we will soon close out 2013, we pick up a brand-new book entitled 2014, a book never opened, filled only with blank pages. What will you imprint on these pages in the upcoming year? Whatever your plans, I hope you live your dream each and every day and share your passion with the world. The Buddha said “the secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate problems, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
My wish for everyone is for abundant good health, both mind and body. I am not one to make resolutions that I may ultimately break, but this upcoming year I plan to see more sunrises and sunsets, standing in the delicious silence of early morning and basking in the warmth of a glowing setting sun.
Happy New Year everyone! May you experience hope, great joy, and much lightness and love in the upcoming year.
