I have to tell you a story! Something happened today, that stopped me in my tracks and totally made me get teary......I am pretty sure it was an AH HA moment as well for me mentally.
So, Dale was driving to the RV park office, following a guy in a golf cart who lost a shirt from the back of his ride. Dale snatched it up and followed him to his spot and gave it back. As he pulled away, he notices their car has a huge DoTERRA label on the back of it.
He backs up, "You all do doTERRA?"
They get to talking and eventually, the man's wife comes out.....they continue to chat a bit, and she says, You were in the Leadership magazine with your RV behind you, right? I can't believe you are here! We have that photo right beside our vision board. We loved your story and want to do the same!
We met up with them at the pool a few days later, hit it right off. In fact, we even got to meet some new friends of theirs, also staying at the RV park. I tell you what the Lord just knows how to bring His children together. And we all are working with successful MLM's!!! So cool!
We made plans right then and there to get together the next night for a Mexican Fiesta!
This is my favorite dip and it's tasting even better with some yummy doTERRA cumin, cilantro and lime oils! Do you remember it from the 4 little Ferguson's blog days?
Here is the recipe. If you have doTERRA oils in your home, do Cumin in the spicy sour cream, Cilantro toothpick in the beans and salsa mix, Lime in the guacamole. If you don't have doTERRA oils in your home yet, you are missing out!!!! Where else could you cook, clean and use medicinally, the same product!? I can help. Just message me. :)
There was a TON of food! How does that always happen!? We split up the list so nicely. Well, at least no one went away hungry. And if they did, it was their OWN FAULT! ;)
Oh these families are just precious! All believers too, of course. The Lord always knows how to bring His kids together. :) We had a ball!!! I am so mad I didn't get pics of the guys playing shuffle board, the kids playing around and Shelly, Elisha and I talking it up in the hot tub for hours.
Elisha got some shots she shared on FB, along with some beautiful thoughts.......
We are already planning on when we can see these guys again! The Lord is SO good to lead us together, at the same RV park, with a lost shirt to start it all.
We had to head 3 1/2 hours south the next morning at 5 AM> I NO LONGER GET UP EARLY, so this was super duper duper unusual and no fun. Bleh.
Papa was great to come play with the kids for the day, and take them to enjoy the Putt putt, play ground, hot tub and pickle ball all over the RV park.
Even though it was a long and early drive, I was SO excited to get to teach a class in Hollywood for a school! It went great!!! The preschool plans to start to utilize oils, diffusers and even natural cleaners in their school. How WONDERFUL for those kids and teachers to move away from chemicals, and towards a healthier environment for learning!
Afterwards, Dale and I went out to eat lunch, and wandered along the awesome shops on main street, while we decided what we wanted.
There were several very fancy shops with amazing hollywood style clothes, like silk jump suits, long gowns, mermaid dresses and those jackets with the big stacked ruffles around the arms like the First Lady wears. I have never seen anything like it.
I told Dale I wanted to go IN the next store and actually walk around a bit....next one up was a High Fashion Paris store.
Ummmmm, Oh My Goodness?!
We sure didn't linger long, haha! Plus the food next door smelled fantastic!
Tea and stir fry with my love out in the warm sunshine, before we headed home to FREEZING cold Sarasota, and out to dinner with Papa and the crew. We wanted some all you can eat Amish food at the Der Dutchman.
We were hoping to get to the beach, but alas, it was not so. It has been just plain COLD for the past few days, like boots & beanies cold, but we still had lots to do and keep busy with school and play, family walks and game nights. So long, Sunshine! Will we see you again soon?
Good thing there is always amazing things to do, see and eat around here! Tomorrow, we hope to take the kids to the John and Mabel Ringling Estate, as in Ringling Brothers Circus. There is a museum, art gallery, and estate you can walk through for free on Mondays, and then the forecast is all SUNSHINE again until we go home.
Can't wait to share more..
