37 Days

During our first week, at our first Left-Right-Center game, we met a couple that we just knew we had a connection with.  Isn’t it amazing how sometimes you just feel a vibe with people.  You just meet them, yet you feel like you have known them for your entire lifetime.  Well, that was Jason and Sara Brelsfoard.  They sat next to us during the game and we immediately connected.  Jason had us laughing from the time he said hello to the time he said good-bye to us that night.  Sara may have been slightly embarrassed on occasion, but she seemed to take everything in stride.

They own what Jason calls a “small” 800-acre farm in central Illinois.  Sara is also a massage therapist.  Jason was immediately intrigued by our full-time RV lifestyle.  He loves what he does, but recognizes that life is short.  He wants to be able to live and enjoy life, not just work until he dies.

We made sure that Jason and Sara made it to trivia the next night and began sitting with them at each campground function that we were at together.  We’d stop by their site and chat and they would do the same.  They came to listen to me speak and bought a couple of my books.  They really did feel like family.

Mike Latona – More Life Lessons in Action

Just like last week’s guest, Collin Fesi, we were able to reconnect with Mike in Maryland.  What a blessing that night was to not just see one of my former players, but two in the same night.  Mike and Collin played for our organization a few years apart, but it was neat to see how they connected immediately knowing that they had that Berkshire Baseball experience in common.  I hope that they stay in contact now that they know each other.

Galveston, I Love Your Beach

Once we got down onto the beach, I didn’t waste any time getting into that water!  I was pulling daddy down to the water with me.  When that first wave crashed into me, I felt like I was in heaven.  That’s one of the best feelings in the world when that wave comes crashing in.  I was so happy in the water.  I was splashing around and smiling from ear to ear.  Then one time, I was watching daddy and turned sideways and a wave came in and knocked me over.  Daddy asked me if I was ok.  I was ok, but just a little embarrassed.  I learned my lesson though, never turn sideways when a wave is coming in.  You have to face those things head on.
