Where I Went on my Field Trip...I mean business trip.

Yes, after months of text I have two picture posts in a row. Ok, here is where we went.

The World Famous Cocoa Beach
At least that's what they claim

I was a little let down, This beach is Not made out of Cocoa!

Waves were Supposed to be Rockin...Um,...No...
But If You Have To Do Some Very Stressful Business

I Guess This Is The Place To Do It
That's Cape Canaveral way over in the Background
I think

I Looked Everywhere For That Darn Bottle!

But in the end it wasn't necessary.
This is where I digress.
Digression 1: Over my life time I have noticed a strange phenomena. I sometimes see something I needed to see or that goes along with something I'm thinking about or need to hear, kind of personal messages....On the back of Semi Trucks.  It has happened too many times to be coincidence and I just take it for what is.Weird.

Digression 2. We have been working on the purpose of this trip for over a year. It took hours of study and research and hard work.(and phone calls.ew!) for both of us on top of every day business. Nearly every aspect of our lives was checked and scrutinized. My husband had to prove himself for a business we have had 16 years, and have others decide whether we were worthy. It has been a looming part of our lives for so long. What we needed won't guarantee more projects or income but puts us on a higher playing field of opportunity that we desperately need to be on to survive at all these days. We mentally and emotionally bled for it. And then......we got the nod of approval. Which is good because I'm so deaf I had to ask my husband outside, that was yes, right?
And the answer is Yes! We had a cause to celebrate!  We did our part, but that is not all there is to it.
 As we were driving home still in some shock that it was finished and remarking that we had truly been blessed though there had been times when we really felt despair at reaching our goal and feeling overwhelmingly grateful, I looked up as a Semi pulled into the lane in front of us, reached out for my husbands arm  pointing with my other for him to look......and I grabbed my camera because...

Oh Yes..... Indeed he is.....

P.S. Yes of course I threw that cup in the trash.

  1. So cool when we get a personal message in the most odd place. God is good! Congrats on a successful business trip.

  2. I'm glad your trip went well. And yes, definitely can't ignore those messages. :)

  7. Ahh, the beach looks so incredibly wonderful! I'd love to get my feet in the sand.

    Those messages happen to me too. ALL. THE. TIME. My friend calls it serendipity smiles. So I smile when I see them.

    You are blessed indeed!
