In Memory of a Friend I Never Met

Recently, I was hit with unexpected news on Facebook. It was a reminder of how the digital world connects us in ways we sometimes overlook. Karin, a friend I had met through one of the RVing women groups, had passed away. Though we had never met face-to-face, her presence was deeply felt in my online community.

Karin had a knack for appearing at just the right moment, offering words of encouragement and support on my posts. When I released Money Road Trip, she graciously left a heartfelt review on Amazon. Looking back, I'm grateful I took the time to express my appreciation to her.

In her obituary, I discovered more about Karin's remarkable life. She described herself as a transformative listener, was a Marine Corps veteran, and volunteered on the Veteran Crisis Line. Her family shared stories that beautifully captured her essence.

Look around in your life. Is there one person you could listen to, with your whole being, and let them know how important they are? - Karin Joy Porch

Reflecting on Karin's life leaves me with a simple yet profound question: How can we embody such compassion in our own lives?

And to all my dear readers, please know how deeply honored I feel that you've welcomed me into your lives. Your support and engagement mean the world to me. I appreciate each and every one of you. Wishing you all the happiness and fulfillment life has to offer.

What ensued was a plot twist I hadn't seen coming. The service team delivered the dreaded news: my brake pads were apparently hanging on for dear life, with percentages that made my heart skip a beatβ€”10% and 30%. Cue the alarms. But something didn't sit right. Sure,...
