You search and search. Why are you here? Is there more for ME? Can I (be happier?), Can I (have more), Can I (this), Can I (that). We’re all looking for our story.
I’ve been watching Patty. I think we all have been. We’re having so much fun planning our trip and being around her. Janey calls her the family LIFE FORCE. Yikes. Okay. That’s pretty strong. That’s like a “pay attention” kind of thing, right? So I sit up straight in my chair and start to see that she’s right. Patty just keeps swimming.
Something is going on here. I’ve made some new friends. I’m writing. I’m laughing. I am almost about to write that I’m going to the gym more. If you know me that should make you laugh.
We are meeting people who start to smile when you talk about Patty. We are getting little emails and messages from friends she made in Iowa as a kid, through her daughter’s dance team, through church, through work. We love your messages and comments by the way. Jane and I chatted with a local business owner yesterday who wanted to share in the trip somehow…help us publicize…I teared up. How has this gal Patty made such an impact? Her story is about others. Giving. Sharing. Laughing.
We’ll be creating stories. Finding Stories. Along Route 66. Til then…
The gang meets tomorrow. And we have plans to see Finding Dory this week. The first step in our pilgrimage to Ellen.
Do you have any suggestions for us for our trip? Things we need to pack? Pictures we need to take? Help us find our story.
