MKE Week 3-6 The Journey Of A Thousand Miles
Wow! The last month here in the Masterkeys has been Incredibly Indescribable- Beyond words….
Oh, just so many changes! So many new faces, places, things, and Feelings! Just like these pumpkins, I’ve been from one extreme to the other, and back again….. talk about a rollercoaster ride! 🙂
I started this Journey of a thousand miles by working a lot of really long, hard hours, day in and day out, in order to finance my obligations during my absence, and secure travelling money for the road. I sent my cat, Potter, to a new permanent home, and then I started packing and making final preparations to leave my home for at least 30-45 days- to drive across the country, and welcome my first Grandson into this world…
A definite Life-changing, and Game-changing experience! Little Man Wyatt was born a week ago Thursday, and I must say, he’s got my heart. So Whole, Perfect, Strong, and definitely created by First Class, and for First Class!
His daily growth is Awe-Inspiring! I’ve taken so many, many pictures of him, and spent many, many unforgettable hours holding and cherishing him in Pure Love, and Aliveness!
I finally looked at my calendar this morning, because I feel as though I AM missing something. As I sit here and think about Life, I realize that sure enough, I AM without my Former Self. The Old Blueprint is gone, permanently. This week alone, I have cried what seems like a million tears…. The memories of each of my own babies, when they were newborns, floods my mind. Where, oh where, does the time go? It seems as though that was just the other day….
I suddenly think of the WHY behind fulfilling my Purpose, and with tears of Joy, here I AM, writing to all of you. 🙂 I committed to being an MKMMA Guide this year, a Service that I immensely enjoy, and although I feel as though I have failed in numerous ways over the last couple weeks, I know in my Heart, that I have not…..
So here goes the rest of the story…. LOL…
My 19 yr. old son, Jeremy, and I, wanted to take a road trip through states we hadn’t been through before, so we left Texas in my very well used Tahoe Sunday afternoon, almost 2 weeks ago. I drove until midnight, when somewhere in the middle of Arkansas, a Waffle house, and a resting area came into play. A few hours later, at 6AM, I decided that I was rested enough to continue on this long journey, as I can’t sleep, and am really excited to get where I am going. We drove for 16 hours this time, only stopping for food, restrooms, and gas.
We travelled through the rest of Arkansas, all of Tennessee, and then into North Carolina. Wow! So very Beautiful…
The trees changing into their Fall colors, the well-built Interstate, and a vehicle Flawlessly running within it’s Element, Perfectly executing what it was designed to do. All of the worries of mechanical failure now vanished!
This mountain pass is simply Gorgeous, and SO worth the additional 4 hours driving time…. 😉
As we near Raleigh, it begins to storm. Big, fat raindrops being driven by the powerful wind and hitting my windshield so hard that I cannot see. It is dark, I don’t know where I am, and I can’t see the lines on the road. I’m already so tired that I can’t see straight…. Yikes!!!!
I AM Grateful that over the last year in the Masterkeys I have learned Focus, Determination, Persistence, and most of all, how to change my thoughts, and subsequently change my world. I have become flexible, yet steadfast in my convictions. I simply must keep going… We arrive safely at our destination. I sleep for quite a while, and then I help my youngest daughter prepare for her first little Nature’s Greatest Miracle. It is wonderful to see her so Happy, and tears of Joy flood my eyes once again. Over the next few days, I set up her own little Peaceful Zone outside…. with a mosaic tile patio set, and a few more of my beloved plants from home, which are now producing babies of their own.
The Liberty and Legacy in this story just go on and on…..
