Hope you’re having an awesome week!…
LIKE WE HAVE!!!
Went camping…It was awesome! As always!!
I never knew I’d like camping. In fact, I thought I’d hate it!
Amazingly, I love it!
Tina and I have been camping in the Smokies every summer for the last three or four years or so. I don’t why I thought I wouldn’t ever like it. We laugh, talk, walk, hike, snuggle when it’s cold, cook together, have coffee before the sun together, we (mostly me) cry about stuff we read, stroll around and check out other folk’s “set ups” and cool camping stuff, swim in the creek (me), knit (her), play the banjo (me), praise the Lord in the morning (both of us), check our emails (neither of us), take a nap, and laugh some more…
Yesterday I finally understood why I love camping so much.
Tina was knitting by the Little River and I decided to ride my bike around and explore some. I found this old cemetery. This is a little weird but I read something on a grave stone and it explained to me why I love camping so much…
On one side it said, “Ortha Ownby” and on the other it said…
“Once in your life you find someone special.
Your lives intermingle and somehow you know.
This is the beginning of all you have longed for.
A love you can build on, a love that will grow.”
