Enjoy the Journey - Thursday - Nov. 18, 2010

Nancy here...

This morning, I got up and just was in one of those moods...;o(  

Just thinking about meeting with our RV-Dream friends on Friday and wishing we could get started on our full-time journey.  While I am excited to be seeing some RV-Dreamers (they are always fun to be with), I am disappointed that we cannot sell the house.  I know all things come at the right time, but today would be a real good time to sell the house ;o) 

I am always saying you need to enjoy the journey, but I really have enjoyed working at Home Depot long enough and need this journey to head in a different direction!!  As I was getting ready to go to work and feeling as sorry as possible for myself, I walked into my living room and there was the most beautiful, though somewhat confused, Christmas Cactus in full bloom.  It decided to bloom early to cheer me up and it worked. So I thought I would share the smile of my day with everyone.  Yes, I need to see the beauty around me and enjoy the journey!!

Have a GREAT DAY and enjoy the Journey!!


  1. Thanks for sharing the Christmas Cactus photos. I have never seen one that color before. Some of the Christmas cacti bloom at Thanksgiving, perhaps this is one of them.

  2. Hang in there. Your beautiful house will sell. We waited 18 months for our house to sell, and it seemed like an eternity. But it did eventually happen.

  3. Oh Nancy, I think that beautiful cactus may be an omen for you. Continue to enjoy the ride; it's going to happen.

  4. All things happen for a reason and I totally understand your frustration. You still need time to track down that elusive "perfect" motorhome, too. Everything will fall into place when it is meant to happen and then you'll have the pleasure of looking back and see that it all worked out for the best.

    Hang in there, count your blessings and enjoy that journey! We're with ya'. :c)

  5. I sure know how you feel! I keep thinking it will never happen. I just need more hope! Thanks for sharing your Christmas cactus with us :-)

  6. Beautiful Christmas cactus!

    Could you lease your home and start now full-timing? I'm hoping to sell my home in 12 to 18 months from now, but if it doesn't sell, I'll lease it out. I'm not going to put off "living" just because I can't sell when I need to. (Easy for me to say :) - but that's the plan.)

  7. THANKS to all for the great support.

    I am back to enjoying the journey and know that "Life is Good!"

    Happy Thanksgiving to each of you!!

  8. That really is a great Christmas Cactus! Thanks for sharing the pictures! As others have said, hang in there! The house will sell and hopefully it will be the right time for reasons you may not even be aware of. Things like that seem to happen to us often. We don't see why something is taking so long then, long after everything has come to pass, we recognize that it was in fact the right timing and we just couldn't see it. Hope it is the same for you!
