This time next week, I’ll be in Provo, Utah for a writer’s conference. I’ve never been to this conference or Utah, so it’s pretty exciting for me. I’m told it’s absolutely beautiful there. I suspect it is with all the mountains and greenery.
I live in such a flat, dry place with not very many trees. It’s so unlike where I grew up in Charleston. Have you ever see the Angel Oak? As a kid, we’d have class field trips to see this massive oak. Limbs thirteen feet long and a trunk so big it was unbelievable. I always wondered what it would be like it if it could tell stories. Ya know? What kind of things has this old oak tree seen?
Something wonderful happened this week. I paid off my car. It’s wasn’t a huge amount, but man, the feeling was so, so great. That debt is gone! Have you ever done that? The entire day, I kept tapping my husband on the shoulder and saying, “We paid it off! Can you believe it?” Best feeling. The battle for debt freedom isn’t over, but I’m closer than I was. At times, I felt so discouraged, and I thought, it’ll never happen, but it did. So, if you’re like me, don’t give up. Keep trucking. It will happen.
