The second family we met a few months after we started this new journey. They have now became more like family. They would come camp with us off and on the 1st camping season, and we visited, but it wasn’t until the 2nd camping season that we really got to know them. It’s funny to look back now because my husband was really quiet around them for a while. Now, I bet they wish he was still that quiet. Lol.
“We don’t meet people by accident, they were meant to cross our paths for a reason”
That is one of my favorite quotes. And when talking about this family, it is just a perfect statement of our friendship. God really knows what he is doing! Out of everyone in the world, it is so awesome that He knows just the right people, that belong in your life, at just the right time. This family will drop what they are doing to come help in any way they can. Like when you are trading fifth wheels and don’t have anything to pull them. They will spend all day with you while you switch, plus help you move out of one and into another.
It is hard these days to find friends that have the same values on life as you do. With this family, not only do we have friends that feel like family, we have a Brother, and Sisters in Christ.
We don’t always get to see them much during the week, because they are some hard workers! They own their own lawn care business and work their tails off during the week. (If you are local and need yard work done, give them a call! J and R Mowing) But when the weekend rolls around, watch out! We always have something fun going on. Have you ever heard of lawn mower races? Well they are awesome! We go once a month to watch them! (OK Mower Racing does a fantastic job!). Whether it is a day on the lake, some type of races, or taking a road trip, we always find something fun to do.
Oh! And don’t forget these girls! They are something special. My kids totally adore them! They also, would do anything for you. This summer, I am so thankful for their help. They have taught both of my kids how to swim (with their life jackets on). But if you knew my kids at the beginning of the summer, you would know why this is such a big deal. They were terrified to get in the water. Now they can’t wait to get in, and we can’t get them out. But seriously, these girls are probably the most amazing young women you will ever meet! (If you’re lucky enough to get the chance)
One of the girls has been on a mission trip most of this year and we haven’t been able to spend much time with her. She is going to 11 countries in 11 months. You can follow her by following this link. The World Race
We have been able to take many small vacations, but also a cruise with part of the family earlier this year, and we had a blast! At the beginning of next year, we get to take another cruise and they all get to go this time! We are so excited!
Who would have thought, by making a change in your life, you would meet so many amazing people, and you get to travel and make so many memories with them.
