So, I know there are probably a few of you who’ve been wondering, where in the hell have we been? And, what I can tell you is that, we’re truly sorry for having been gone and for as long as we have. Anybody who knows us know that Cindy and I aren’t exactly the kind of people who like to wear our personal lives on our shirt sleeves and so, for the better part of the last two years, we just did our best to make things work. Unfortunately, life had other plans for us and earlier this year, it completely pulled the rug out from under our feet. The good news is, we are finally at a point where life can resume again and for all the people who expressed concern for us during our extended absence, we thought it would be nice to make an exception and share a little, of what's been going on.
It's hard when those you love are taken, mentally or physically.. It makes you look at life so differently.
Some few of my Jeep brothers know a little of my story.
Your story has me thinking about mine..
I lost my wife to an accident almost 6 years ago now. At the same time my friend and boss at the time was diagnosed with PSP, Progressive Supra Nuclear Palsy. A terrible disease that at first takes the ability to communicate, then to even swallow.. He wasted away and after about a year he died.
Alvin was his name and years ago he had a CJ5.. he loved that Jeep and for years wanted another, he finally purchased it, He was so happy. 4 months later was diagnosed with PSP and couldn't drive it anymore and sold it.
I resolved to go buy a Jeep and here I am,. Having met many great people though this group and Wheeling. I'm thankful.
I realized from my friend and my wife passing that I needed to enjoy life, don't wait for what you want because it could all be gone tomorrow.
Don't sweat the small stuff.
It's where I got the saying that's on my Jeeps windshield.
It's All Good.
Enjoy what you have while you have it.
