Part 4 Our trip to Asheville North Carolina, Living in the moment always


By day 4 we can hardly walk and I felt like I went 12 rounds with Mike Tyson but no there is no rest for the weary or the beat up.


So on Easter Sunday, after my private moment with  God, we went zip lining broken rib and all.

This was so excting as my friend had this on his bucket list and I was so glad I could be part of this.

I know how it feels to accomplish something that has been on your bucket list, as I recently walked on fire, which was on mine since 2008. Its an amazing feeling and I was happy for him to be able to cross this off of his list.


We conquered 17 zip lines high in the mountains,¬† through the trees and over fields (to grandmother’s house we go…oh wait wrong story)

It was an amazing day for all of us and even though I am afraid of heights (Yes, I have jumped out of a plane and hot air ballooned but I am still afraid, its just about doing it and overcoming your fears)


We had to cross a few rickety bridges and climb up on some pretty high platforms but I did it all with a sense of accomplishment.


Afterwards we came back and cooked dinner together, we sat around the table talking about our amazing time here, later on by the fire pit we were all in relaxed mode, thinking about how blessed we truly were.


For the last and finally day…we relaxed…NOT!

Are you kidding? Not my family… no, we still had another State Park to conquer. So we hiked up to the top of Chimney Rock,

I cant tell you how many frigging steps there were to get up to the top. I lost count around 300 as I was more worried about my shaky leg syndrome that was going on. You know that uncontrollably shake of your legs that makes you feel like gumby but hey I am no quitter and I am here to tell you the view from the top was spectacular and worth all the shaky legs feeling.


We learned alot on this vacation, this trip brought us together, we cooked together, we laughed together, we helped each other, we became one with nature and we even got to do things we never thought we could, we pushed past the fear, the pain and we dug deep inside to find out what we were truly made of.


We were full of gratitude, for this gift of this home, for being able to be healthy enough to do this, for someone that would drive 11 hours to spend time with me, for God and all of his magnificent beauty and for the fact that we were all together, enjoying each others company and especially for being present and living in the moment….always.
