This time around it is hard to find an internet computer to write a blog. It seems like a rainy day in Switzerland is a good day for hunting down a computer, finding a washer and dryer and a hair dryer. We say there are no bad weather days only bad attitudes.
My soulmate and I are having a wonderful time. This type of travel is not for the fainthearted. There are a lot of jumping on and off trains – finding connections and finding hotel rooms all without an understanding of the language – on the fly but with the many prayers of our friends and family we have always managed by grace to find a safe and affordable place to lay our heads at the end of the day……long run on sentence but the computer has a mind of it-s own.
John is 100 % adventurous and I started out at 5% but he says I am up to 92%. I am not too sure about that number.
What I have learned along the way is that Letting Go is a Leap of Faith.
First I had to get rid of all the stuff that I thought I needed but could not carry. Living without is so much better than carrying that which is a burden.
Then we had to let our beloved Murphy pass over the Rainbow Bridge without us there. Heart breaking for us as for Christine and Mark who were with him.
Now everyday I have to let go of expectations and trust that Someone has our backs.
Sometimes you just Need to have faith…Trust and let go. Even on a rainy Saturday in Switzerland there are blessings in letting go…..a hair dryer, a washing machine and dryer, and an internet Computer.
A reminder to myself…. Be better than you think you are…..more couragous, more adventurous, move loving and more caring.
Learning to live with less….. and more in the present moment.
John and I try to connect in some small positive ways with the people we meet. We try to be a positive image of an American. We truly find the best part of travel is in the people we meet and in extending gratitude and kindness to everyone. We are definately the minority. It is because of all of you praying for us that we are able to let go and share God-s love. Thank you!!!!
