Just to let everyone know that we made it back to Ontario safe and sound.
The Cowboy continues to amaze me. I’m not sure how he just drove 1300 miles in the last 5 days after having gone through what he has in the last 2 months.
We didn’t spend long hours on the road, pulled over at a rest area or a big box store parking lot when he needed to rest.
He is still sleeping a lot but sleeping better now that we have arrived back home. And yes our motorhome has been our home for the last seven years but where we park it can make all the difference between a house and home. This is where our roots are. Deep roots.
When I started this blog last fall my intention was to journal our travels and photos to share with our family and friends. In February, when The Cowboy was diagnosed with cancer, the blog took off in a different direction. We needed to communicate with everyone and keep them updated, being so many miles from home.
We also hoped that if there was anyone else out there that were facing the same challenges that we could help alleviate some of those fears of the unknown.
At that time I had no idea where the strength would come from but YOU our readers have given us that strength! We never would have been able to make this journey without your Prayers and encouragement. There were many evenings when I have sat and cried many big grateful tears reading your comments and positive thoughts for us. We owe all of this success to YOU! How can we not have made it through with all of the love and compassion you’ve shown us?
I swear if the bunch of you decided to open a greeting card company that Hallmark would be put to shame!
Below is a comment left by my brother KLM – who by the way would be the President of that greeting card company. He says it best!
I am remembering when this blog first started, and then how it blossomed into this part of the journey or quest. It seems to me it became an informational forum for all of us involved to learn and experience with you a part of life we don't all fully understand.
I think back to watching the ticker and thinking, my gosh how I miss and you both and have to wait even longer to see you. I cried with you, I laughed with you ...tried to do my best and be strong and inspire you.
Being positive has proven to be beneficial as we all know when dealing with this demon, and I want to say again, kudo's to you both for fighting a good fight.
"The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you."
Now the day is just around for your arrival and I am so thankful. I would like to also thank all your followers for all their encouraging and sincere support...you can never have enough friends in life.
The next chapter hasn't been written, but I think we can speculate and rejoice accordingly.
Much luv and happiness to you both,
KLM MAE CJM
We will continue posting although probably not on a regular basis and it will probably take off in a different direction as The Cowboy continues to recover.
We know we still have some challenges ahead of us but we will tackle them head on, just as we’ve done with this adventure.
