A new chapter


Chris and I have always wanted to travel around Australia. Now in our late sixties, our children are all grown, our grandchildren also are older and we now have no aged parents to care for. The stage is set. It is our time.

As you may recall, my mother lost her battle with dementia last December and in the fullness of time, her money from her house sale cleared. She graciously left me enough money to buy our rig and truck and now the time has come to leave for sunny shores. Or in our case, coastline.

So, we have almost finished closing up our rented house. We have either sold or given away most of our stuff and we are almost ready.

I am a little anxious but looking forward to this nomadic lifestyle. I have never done this before. Chris tells me that our life won't change too dramatically. I will still be writing. I will miss going to church, but will take steps to have church at home.

I know God is in this with us, and He remains our Saviour and Friend. We will be carrying Him in our hearts and minds to whomever He places in our path. 

Whatever changes there are, I am still looking forward to this new chapter in our lives.

  4. What a beautiful gift your mother left you and what a way to honor her life by living it to the fullest by enjoying God's beauty and making new friends. May God give you safe travels and scared connections and may He meet your at every stop.

  5. How exciting! My husband and I have a 5th wheel that we use seasonally right now but we are hoping one day to do as you and your husband are getting ready to do.

  6. Hi Theresa! I can't believe this is actually happening! It's been planned for 22 years! But until we actually pull away from the storage area and go to a caravan park, it won't seem real. Enjoy your 5th wheel and thanks for sharing a cuppa with me. Also, checked out your blog. It's a shame you aren't still blogging: I would have followed you with interest! Blessings, Glenys
