My solo path to Thanksgiving (1st Camino-Sept/Nov)

This trip means EVERYTHING to me!
My Gratitude, my need for reflection & for guidance are 'full-to-bursting' within me!
I feel beyond blessed & fortunate to be physically ABLE to embark on this walk when I know
so many who can not!

I found this forum in April of this year & have been glued to it almost daily! I thought I'd have asked numerous questions by now but trip planning has long since stopped being the motivation to check out the forum! The full & varied posts comfort me in a way that I know needs no explanation here! It just helps expand in me the 'openness to receive' that the tug of the Camino creates!

I was originally supposed to leave for my Camino Sept 10 -Oct. but work came up unexpectedly & I thought I would have to cancel completely! :eek:
Delayed but not swayed, I found that I would only have to postpone for a couple more weeks! The beauty of my new dates is that my return will now have me home just 1 week shy of my favorite holiday.....THANKSGIVING! How PERFECTLY FITTING is THAT?!:D

I will be leaving Atlanta next Wed., Sept. 26 to fly to CDG-Bayonne-train to SJPDP, to begin my 1st Camino on Fri. Sept. 28, although I feel my Camino really began in April.

So many wonderful, interesting things have happened since I put things in motion (like finding out one of my REI angels was also my neighbor & we walked together once & had breakfast on the morning of her flight out & she is currently walking the CF!) & so many 'beautifully'-painful things that I'm meant to reflect on while I'm walking, presented themselves too & ALL of it is meant for MY good! I just KNOW it!

Thanks to all of you, I now know what to do as those inevitable 'butterflies' are beginning to show up:oops: & the worries of my loved ones present themselves in the numerous times they ask me the same questions over & over!:) I may ask a few more questions myself as time draws nearer but for right now.........

Thank you all for being here & for what you share & give of yourselves!
I can't wait to be among the ones to have a 'past Camino(s)' listing under my name!

Buen Camino & Ultreia!:):D

Wow! Thank you! Hope we run into each other! I will probably have a lot of purple on! LOL! Favorite color! Do you still get just as excited as the first time?

Buen Camino
Thank you for your post SoLive. My first Camino is about eleven months away and since I've found this forum I'm a daily visitor. I have had so much good advice and really enjoy reading the posts. I feel your excitement and am excited for you. Happiness and enjoyment - Buen Camino!

Buen Camino , @SoLive !
You will be walking later than you thought, which may be a blessing - there will be no crowds and more space for reflection.
May it be a grace-full journey, and all that you need.

Thank you so much! That description makes it sound like the right time & perfect place to be! There are no coincidences.......:)
