fixed my messed up blog the virus not getting me down

Sunday, July 19, 2020

I was challenged yesterday by a spark friend Shirley who asked this question on the teams daily question How long has it been since you wrote a Blog
My Answer was May and said to my self I did not have any to blog about
I found this quote while searching for quotes to share with teammates.
Take the bad and make it good!” Take the good and make it better!
Since I was feeling sorry for my self because we won’t have a adventure this year
That was bad.
make it good remember the memories of past summer Adventures
with my brother Tom.

I had to figure it out as we traveled. I was never good at the guessing where we headed. it out.
That is what made it better. The last summer adventure I did not figure it out until we arrive at the motel in the evening and you could see the sign for the Teton mountains .
The virus has taken Toms job and our adventure for 2020
The good came to me as looked at the picture on my desk top its of our Adventure to Arches it comes up every morning when I turn on the compute. The Mount Rushmore adventure greets me when I come on Spark people its my banner picture.

The virus can not take the memories away for us I can go back and watch the DVD’s look at the scrapbooks I made the reread my journals of our adventures and my blogs here on spark .
This week I has a E mail from Snap fish a web site that makes photo memories . they are now making masks with memories photos . I ordered one. Showing off some of our memories

like another spark friends Blog says smart sparkers wear their mask to be safe and help others to be safe here the picture of my memory mask.
They say we can not can go back I disagree we can and remember the fun times we enjoyed and forget the changes in our lives since the virus paid us a visit even if only for a short time and it has help me get my self moving on the spark trail .

    I love this blog, Fran! What great memories to reflect back on. So true, the virus cannot rob us of the past.
    I am sorry to hear about Tom’s job. And your plans for this year. I hope it gets better for him soon. And that more adventures happen in the near future. For all of us.
    I love the pics.

    Great blog! Yes ! Let's all wear our masks so we can go on adventures again. I usually plan ours in March and April. At least I didn't have a destination yet. I love the way you travel!

    Awesome pics! I have been to all three places-The grand tetons, arches (several times) and Mount Rushmore. The Mount Rushmore trip was so wonderful. We spent a week there. We made such great memories. I remember going up the steps in Mount Rushmore to get a better view. There were almost two hundred steps or more. I didn't count but we did have to stop once. What magical times they were when we could go on adventures. Hopefully we will be able to go on adventures again in 2021-Hopefully the pandemic is over then.

    Aww, sweetie.. yes, we have to hold onto the memories of the good times, especially when going through difficult times. Your mask is lovely. I'm glad you were able to get something to help you remember good things. I'm so sorry about Tom's job... i'm praying for him too. I agree we should wear our masks both for ourselves and other people around us. Beautiful pictures. Fran. emoticon emoticon
