I’ve been asked that question a few times since I started writing this blog in September, 2008. Yes, I wanted to keep our friends and family aware of our whereabouts, but also I wanted to have a way “to remember” where we’d been and what we saw for that time in the future when memories would be harder to recall.
Molly Pinner and Jan Moore are “to blame” for encouraging me and getting me started way back when. Jan got me into using Window Live Writer to compose my blogs and it is a lot easier to use than Blogger, per se.
The following email I received is one big reason I continue to blog….to encourage and assist other folks to join us on the road and to become fulltime RVers. I’m quoting this email with permission.
Bobbie: sorry I am emailing you instead of posting comment. Couldn't figure out how. Any how...remember Mr. Rogers? His song "won't you be my neighbor?" After reading your blog from the beginning that is how I am feeling about you. You have so much fun. You care so much about your friends. From your writing you seem to just enjoy life. That’s why "won't you be my neighbor?" Your story telling is amazing. It is your fault I haven't accomplished much in the last few days. All I've done is read. I cried with you when Naomi and Lory died. Your sharing made me feel like I knew them just a little bit. I danced at Bettys mardi gras party with everyone. I could taste some of the food.I see on your map you haven't been to Michigan. If you ever get up here let me know. I live about two hours north of Goshen, IN. If fact I went to college there. I found your blog while looking up gate guarding jobs. My goal/dream is to full time but it will be about four more years as we still have 6 kids at home. Sorry, I am rambling now. Thanks for allowing others to "travel" with you. Nora E.
Isn’t that just the nicest comment? Yes, Nora sure did “make my day” with her comments. I had a smile plastered on my face all day long.
Still smiling……remember, you are loved.
