Our youngest son used to always say, “Mom, I am doing big things, really big things.” He used “big things” in reference to modeling at Columbia Sportswear, his employment at the bank and when he started college. That child was quite the jokester and always excited about his accomplishments and projects on the horizon.
Well here in Arizona,Ronnie and I are what our son would call,”Doing Big Things!”
For myself, I have jumped head first back into the world of having a corporate paycheck. In Arizona I am doing “BIGGER THINGS.” I debated talking about it and I am not going to say much, those that know me personally have been informed.
What’s exciting is I will be able to travel, Chicago is definitely in the picture, lot’s of Vegas trips, California, Florida, Boston, and the best part is most likely Hawaii !! I am pretty excited.
Ronnie also is doing well, the first interview he had less than a week after we arrived, he landed the job. Much better pay than in Oregon, and he loves the job and his co-workers. He only travels about 12 miles each way to work.
So we are pretty darn happy, Arizona was the right choice for us. Life is great and everyday is sunny. We are very, very blessed.
Mother’s day weekend was great, we stayed at the Hyatt in Scottsdale overnight listened to some great music. There were golf carts that picked us up at the Hyatt and drove us to the music venue. I was able to sit by the pool and relax with friends and just feel GOOD!!
One of my favorite young male friends from Oregon woke me up at 10:00am with a Happy Mother’s Day call. He has been like a son to me for the past 5 years. And the wonderful part is, I had never met his Mother, but she was one of the friends that joined us at the Hyatt. His Mother also lives in Mesa.
Last weekend we traveled up to Payson Arizona about an hour and a half from where we live. We took the Harley, and my God, the trip through the Tonto National Forest was amazing. Beauty at it’s finest, just incredible countryside. We spent Saturday night with friends in Payson and stayed up until past 5am chatting.
On the way to Payson, there were 2 beautiful wild horses that crossed right in front of us on the rode. Our best friend was riding in front of us on his Harley and spotted them coming out of the brush, he motioned for us to take caution right about the same time we saw them. That moment of beauty will be forever etched in my mind. Those 2 beautiful caramel horses with a dark, dark brown mane were gorgeous.
There is something so soothing about riding on a Harley and letting your brain stop and release all the pain in your heart and just enjoy nature, the wind and the sun. Call me crazy, because I am, I am thankful that Arizona does not have a helmet law. It’s truly a different experience riding without a helmet, in shorts. If you know me well, I love, love motorcycles and the ocean. I have always said if I died on a Harley or while swimming in the ocean , I died happy and doing what I love the most.
I have found my peaceful place, I hope everyone else someday will be as happy and blessed as I am, if your not already. Go follow your dreams. Remove the rubbish that causes harm.
