To the spirit in the sky.... 🎵
Four years ago today, the matriarch of our family went through the Gateway to Heaven. Not a day goes by that she is not thought of or missed. I know I can’t actually see her anymore, but I know she’s there.. From the rainbows, to the clouds, to her favorite wild animals and long car rides.. she’s there!
Today, I set out on a goal I set for myself that included a few specifics in getting it done. 1) Cross off another winter summit off the NH48 4000 Footers; 2) Make one of them a Presidential peak; and 3) Hike it solo!
I believe My Grammy was there for that too! I saw her in the car on the way to the Mountains.. And She was there again when I got close to the summit ... I had to turn around before the top because the snow drifts covered the trail.. it was cold, cloudy, and the wind wasn’t friendly...I didn’t want to lose my direction, especially in these conditions, ALONE. But then I remembered the two men I passed earlier up the mountain.. After minutes back down, I met up with them and they kindly allowed me to follow them the last 10 minutes up so I could make it to the top. I believe their names were Matt and Ryan. Thanks Guys!
I’d like to believe My Grammy had something to do with the placement of hikers today. I may not have hit the summit solo, but that’s ok.. I set out by myself, I hiked by myself and I hit a summit that was on my checklist! Thanks for your help Grammy... until I see you again! 😘❤️✌🏻 14/48 WINTER
