On The Road

Hello Sunshine!  Yes, that’s you!  🙂 

I am full of joy, gratitude and feel so blessed. 

I give props to the chef at the Marriott Courtyard in Tennessee.  I ordered a basic omelet, three egg whites and one yolk and instructed the chef to add whatever vegetables were on hand, but the chef suprised me with this beautiful and delightful presentation!  So pretty!  🙂  Of course, I have to mention the omelette is healthy too! Lol!

Obviously this Chef loves his job!  When you LOVE what you do and do what you LOVE, you shine!  This is another  reminder to stay on your grind to FIND YOUR PURPOSE and don’t stop until you get there.  Once you find your purpose, shift gears and get busy with it.. all day long!  

  

Yesterday after a long a** 15 hour road trip, I attended my cousin’s high school graduation from Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Congratulations CJ!!   On to Murray State University!  Whoo hoo!!!

  
That’s CJ and my aunt Annie in the pic!  Love!

We could have flown; however, the long drive gave us the opportunity to talk without the distractions and to allow the conversations to flow and flow they did! 🙂 

I am writing this from the back seat of a big behind Expedition. I love to drive but it’s cool to be occasionally chauffeured. Lol! As a passenger, I have time to write and to enjoy the view.  You don’t get to enjoy this view from an airplane.

  
This morning we are on the road again but to visit a different cousin in Georgia. 

Before leaving Tennessee, we stopped to buy more lotto tickets. On our way too Tennesee, we won $15 in a scratchoff!  Maybe we’ll get even luckier with the powerball and the megamillio jackpots.

  

I stayed in the car to write but could not resist feeling the heat on my bare skin and to appreciate the bright morning sun, so I got out to stretch. I hear a shout…

                                                          “I like your outfit!      

I look up to see a beautiful and natural diva walking away from an 18 wheeler big rig.  Nice!!

  
She’s sportin a short and fierce fro.   I see she’s also wearing a headset and ask,

                                                         Me:   “Are you driving that?”

                                                         Her:  “Yup!” 
                                                         Me:  “That’s what’s up!!  You go girl! ”  High Five!!

Damnit!  Already I forgot her name!!!  I was so excited to see girl power in full effect!!   

She’s from Iowa, is in her mid 40’s and has wanted to drive a tractor trailer since she was 24 years old.  She allowed others to talk her out of driving but finally about a year ago decided to get her license. Hello!!!!  This is exactly what I’m talking about.  

                               Follow YOUR heart, follow YOUR dreams, and follow YOUR  passion(s) to the end!

   
 

Whatever your plans are for this holiday weekend, I hope you get to take the time to enjoy the beauty of the day. 

Have a fabulous day and enjoy the weeeknd.  🙂
