To infinity and beyond edition.

This post is the 100th post on this blog. That is amazing in itself. I have stuck with this blog and have continued at it and kept on writing and learning and growing and adventuring. And saying “and” over and over. Next blog post will be about nothing but the conjunction “and.”

My weekly adventure for the week of 41 would see my running my second of two Holiday toy drives for Toys for tots. This week at the lovely Spirit Light Services center. Where I would be doing oracle card readings, with a few other card readers, who I can now call friend. They have been an incredible part of my journey and have taught and shown me so much. Where people could come and donate a toy and also get a card reading form one of us if they chose to do so.

We had quite a few people show up this week as well as last week, and some just came out to drop off toys for it. It was very humbling to see so many people be a part of this, to come out for the cause, to support me, and to help the kids. I am beyond thankful for everyone that helped or pitched in. Whether offering me the place to run this thing, offering to do readings, and just come out and donate. It was such an amazing thing to see and be a part of. To witness that much love was incredible and it was for a great cause. Helping to bring a smile and joy to a kid this holiday season. After dropping off the donations, I got to talking to the people that run the chapter for the county I live in. They told me that they have 17ooo families they are working with this year. That is so heartbreaking to hear that so many are in such a place in their life. I am glad that I could help out some families with our donations. I have never done anything like this, so to have so many come together, so quickly, to get this together and to get it off, was remarkable. It taught me and shown me a lot. Next year I hope to get involved with this type of stuff again and hopefully be able to do even more with a bigger plan with it with more time.

Speaking of next year it’s hard to imagine that there is really just about three weeks left of 2016. This year has been an incredible year for me. I have accomplished much and changed much about my life, my way of living. I will certainly write a bigger article about my wrap-up for the year 2016. Next year will be a busier year for me as I work to do even more. As I work to take myself out there and put myself out there more. I have many ideas and thoughts for myself with what I want to do with myself and take myself. Next year and the years beyond that I hope to see it slowly come into fruition. I am beyond thankful for this journey. I never saw this as my journey or even being here. So I am hopeful to where it will take me. Life is improving so much. I can not wait to see where it will take me.

Thank you to everyone that has helped me over the year, who has supported me and encouraged me. Thank you to everyone that has read this blog, or liked one of my posts, or shared it on FB. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I love you all.
