Some of you have heard how I wrote down on March 23rd, 2014,10 things that I wanted to happen in my life.  By December 2017 I had gotten 9 of the 10.  The only thing that was left on my list was a trip to Ireland.

I told our son, Bryan, last summer that his Dad and I were going to Ireland within the next 2 years and we would like him to come along. Now, I didn't know when or how that was going to happen, but it was going to happen.

On February 24th of this year I received a call from my sister, Mavis, inviting me to come on a "once in a lifetime" cruise with her to Ireland.  I was blown away and beyond excited and grateful., although I had wanted to go with my husband, Wayne, because his father was born in County Cork Ireland and we had wanted to visit where he grew up. With this trip, I was going to meet a lady I had met on Facebook by the name of Colleen Toye, from Londonderry, Ireland.

Mavis and I started planning the 13 day trip which was to start on June 16th of this year. We had the Penthouse suite, a butler and wonderful excursions planned.

On May 14th, I received a call from my sister telling me that she had fallen and broken her foot and hurt her back and that she couldn't possibly go on the cruise.  I didn't have time to be disappointed on the call tho because she asked if my husband would like to take her place.  Are you kidding!!!! Wayne and I on a cruise like that while celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary. 

We couldn't stop crying for joy!

The next morning, she called and said that the cruise line won't let him take her place, but maybe we would like to either go on a motorcoach tour or book another cruise.  She would pay for it all except the excursions for the two of us.

Now, I don't know about you, but I know that the thoughts (that are things) had everything to do with this wonderful event for Wayne and I.

We will have a trip of a lifetime while visiting, Amsterdam, Scotland, Ireland, the Channel Island and Wales starting on July 26th. I won't be able to meet Colleen Toye from Ireland on this trip, but we can still keep in touch on FB.

Let your subconscious mind lead your conscious mind wherever you want to go.
