It is profound sadness that I write this. On Monday, November 29, 2010 my mother passed away. She was suffering from an age related condition and we will miss her greatly. It came unexpectedly. The loss is devastating to me and I have cried off and on for days.
Now that the shock is over, I know which way my life will unfold with respect to vandwelling. I will miss Mom forever and will always have her picture in my vehicle after I become a vandweller. She is alive in my mind and my dreams. She gave birth to me and on her departure, gave me inspiration to experience more travels. I believe she shared my desire for travel.
Make no mistake – I miss Mom and would give anything to have her back. It is not meant to be.
As my life’s path is becoming clearer, I wish to start to purchase things I will need when I hit the road… These things include: a generator, AGM batteries, possibly solar panels, battery charger, an inverter, etc. I can accumulate these items and store them until needed. I spoke with Mom a few months ago and I believe she supported me in this nomadic desire and would be proud of me and my desire to wander.
This week has been profoundly sad but at the same time has given me hope for the future. I will always love my Mom for bringing me into the world, enriching my life, and teaching me to follow my dreams. I miss her greatly and hope that I make her proud.
Rest in peace Mom. I have loved you all my life and always will.
