Everyone is so unbelievably nice and are always offering to help us. Although we have absolutely everything we could possible need or want, I do have one special request: Please continue to share your stories with our family because we love them.
Every day I’m privileged to hear from people who can relate to one of my stories. I’m beginning to think that my stories are your stories, I just happen to be telling them. It makes me so happy that I may be making a difference to someone, even if it’s small.
Our friends Kurt and Laurie Boerman were curious to find some of the landmarks I’ve written about, so they started hiking the trails we love. They started hiking after work and on weekends because of the beauty and peacefulness that surrounds us in Muskegon. They decided to share the fun with their granddaughter, Jenna. Laurie made up a scavenger hunt to entice Jenna to join them on a hike and it worked. Now Jenna loves to adventure with her fun grandparents.
We joined Kurt and Laurie on one of their hikes and learned they were never hikers before. Now I think all three are hooked. They sometimes walk up to six miles a day and take pictures along the way to share with Mark and I. It makes us feel like we are hiking with them.
Stories like this really make me smile. Please continue sharing them.
