Counting Our Blessings

May 5, 2010

          I must admit that when we first made the decision to leave the comfort of our home for the freedom of the wild world, I was nervous. However, since we have announced our departure I have been reassured that we have made the right choice. I was worried that we were going to get opposition from friends and family and that our resolve would falter as a result, exactly the opposite happened though. We have had extraordinarily positive reactions from both friends and family alike. In fact, nobody seemed very surprised by our choice. We have gained much inspiration from everyone's support and cannot give enough thanks for the kind words and blessings that have been sent our way.
          Another big worry was that we would have trouble with the necessary preparations, such as finding a place for my cats and snake to stay, obtaining the necessary supplies and funds for the trip, etc. We still have much to accomplish before we leave; but, we have had fantastic results in this area so far as well. These are all signs to us that this was the right decision to make.
          We are so blessed to have such wonderfully supportive and open minded people in our lives. The benevolence of our friends and family has allowed this idea to blossom into a reality. It is through your participation that our small story will become an epic adventure. You are all very much appreciated. Thank you so much for supporting us on this crazy adventure; we will be sure to keep you updated as our journey unfolds.
