Wow. What an amazing couple of days. How can I even begin to describe how grateful we are for the outpouring of support we have received from friends, family and complete strangers. Thank You. No, Thank You from the bottom of our heart.
If you hadn’t noticed, we were hesitant to put this out there. For so many years it was hush hush. “Pssst, don’t tell him. Oooh No – Don’t ever tell her! She might know that person and then what? We will be up shit creek, out of a job and then this dream will Never happen.” Turns out that reality is completely different than these little stories we had fabricated in our heads. The next 10 months will fly by. Before we know it we’ll be houseless but alive in the fullest sense.
There are always a few naysayers, although less than I had anticipated. The easiest thing for me is to have that knee jerk reaction – “What an A-hole.” or “Is this person for real?” But going deeper you I begin to appreciate the concerns they have. It’s not that they hate. Instead, they are expressing concern. It’s love, just worded differently. To all, I welcome your feedback. Both positive and that meant positively.
What can I say other than we Love You. Those words seem so overused and small. Your support means the world to us. We’re swinging for the fences. We don’t know if this will work out but we’re going to dig deep, fight and hustle to give it a chance. Having your support at our backs confirms what we’ve been thinking all along: Let’s Do This!
