This past week was another confirmation of why I have done what I have, and do what I do. I am sharing what I do because I want to share what living life means to me and so I can help anyone else that wants to live to be able to.
I was able to spend two different days with my father taking him to dinner and to a family birthday party, visited with my brother and his family and enjoyed two date nights with Michele. I enjoyed a breakfast and a lunch with two new friends, visited with an old friend I hadn’t seen in years, played a round of golf with friends at Royal New Kent and attended Bullets, BBQ and Beer night with the Marines and guests. I also completed the 22 push up a day to help stop the suicide of 22 veterans a day challenge, completed the run everyday for 7 day challenge in remembrance of the Pearl Harbor and attended Team Adrenaline.
There were three WAM! meetings last week and I attended all three of them. I don’t attend as many as I used to and I am really glad I attended these as they were all great ones. We had four new guests and tons of great feedback and ideas were exchanged. It was motivating! I can’t wait to attend another one tomorrow evening.
My most exciting meeting of the week was with a gentlemen from West Point who in 2018 completed a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. This is something that I have been looking into a little while and I received the answers I needed during this meeting to make the decision to tackle this adventure myself in 2021. On April 19th I will begin a 125 day consecutive hike of all 2192 miles of the trail ending at Mt. Katahdin, Maine. I’m really looking forward to this and so thankful yet again that I have gotten myself in a position to do it.
You may notice this week in the events section that the cruise isn’t there. Well Norwegian Cruise Lines informed us this week that due to Covid yet another cruise is cancelled. No problem, we’ll just do something else. It looks like instead we will be heading to Costa Rica during that same time frame, February 20th – 28th. We have narrowed it down to a couple different resorts and will make a decision and set it up this week. If you would like to join us, just let us know.
How was your week?
