We worry so much about our finances that we sometimes forget to stop and enjoy what we have in our lives right now. Our day began with a bit of …shall we say…financial stress. We began snapping at one another, something we do not do very often since being out here on the road. Finally, after what seemed to be hours (actually only minutes), the laughter once again began and at that moment we were just North of Parker, Arizona on Highway 95. If you have ever driven this route, you know exactly what we mean when we say that this ride is breathtaking…the scenery is beyond words. At the same precise moment, we both seen a State park on the Colorado River, nestled in between several mountains and simultaneously we said, “Want to spend the night here?”
We pulled in and it was a great park…the scenery was spectacular…we found our spot…settled in and then found out there was no satellite signal at all…no TV...no phone service…no internet service. What were we to do? We were settled in so we thought we may as well make the best of it. We walked around and took pictures, met some wonderful people, including the Ranger who was also a photo buff.
When night came and we were not ready to go to sleep so early, we remembered the video games we had but had not played in such a long time. Probably not since we had our grandson with us…which is a very long time. Anyway, we spent the evening playing these silly video games, we laughed so hard and for that time all of our troubles were so far away.
Still Not Sure What Kind of Bug This Was!
We woke this morning with a new perspective on our lives and will continue to laugh, love and live our lives to the fullest at every moment. Thank you God for once again taking us to a place within our hearts where we can enjoy ourselves no matter what the circumstances going on in our lives are, we are certain that no matter what happens, we will be able to get through it.
