Folks, it's hard to fail when you have this much support. Words of incouragement are never just words. They come from a man's guts and a very "human" part that usually doesn't show.
The good part is they are connected.
Some time it's just a pat on the back when words are hard to say. Sometimes it's a hug when words are hard to say.Sometimes it's a nod or a glance.The main thing it is always felt in a place that's usually scared and trying to be strong for everyone else.
Whatever the case may be, not one of those words or gestures goes unfelt.
I have never faced what I had to face lately, but I did draw great strenght from all of those words of encouragement. Some of you I had never been aquainted with and probably will never meet.None of that makes any difference either.
The thing is we are a "Brotherhood" of AATV'ers.
We hear a different drum beat and look at life and "wild places" differently than most folks.
Maybe we walk just a bit closer to the one who created all of the wild places, with a deeper appreciation of all creation.
As for me, my favorite times come from being out on a ridge, overlooking a beautiful lake, listening to the cry of the loons.
"Out there" is where I find out not only who I am but "who's I am".
"Out there", is where I long to be when things are falling down around my ears. "Out there" is where I find peace in a world where not much peace exists.
Not many will uderstand what I'm trying to write, but I know the kindred spirit of the "Brotherhood", will know exactly what I'm saying!
Thanks one more time for sharing your strenght.
