Sally and I have moved 3,000 miles from Tampa, Florida to Portland, Oregon. If you have sent me an email this week and I have not responded, it is because we have been very busy with the closing of our former home in Tampa and our getting out here with our 9 pound fluff-ball dog Cricket (first plane trip for her, in a carrier, in the cabin with us). Yesterday, we became Oregonians, and we feel great! Tired, yes, but feeling great!
A lot of thought went into our move. I am a native Floridan, and Sally has been in Florida over 40 years. However, after we spent a week in Portland last year, we decided it was time to move here. Many things went into our decision-making process, including what it would be like to live in an area where the Parkinson’s community embraces my recovery and my message of faith and hope in Parkinson’s recovery. The Parkinson’s community in Tampa had no interest in what we all are doing in our world-wide community of Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® warriors.
I am grateful for all of you. I am excited about moving to Portland. For the next three weeks, we will be living in a Marriott Residence Inn in Portland (they allow pets), and then we will move into our new home mid-May. I am with Sally, so wherever we are living, it is home.
For now, I am a little worn out from everything that has been going on, so this post will come to an end.
Have a beautiful weekend.
You are worth it!
All my best,
