Most of today was sluggish and sloggish – slogging along for very little reward. These are what I’ve come to think of as ‘faith miles’ – not necessarily productive in themselves, but you have to put in the effort in the faith that it will eventually be rewarded.
And rewarded they were – at about 4pm, heralded by a squall and a quick cold shower, I was suddenly back in the sweet water, and it was all the sweeter for the slogging.
I don’t know if it was the force of all the texts, or even just the thoughts, of people wishing me sweet water, but just in case, thank you all very much, keep up the good work, and let’s see if we can get me to Antigua before the end of February!
In haste, getting back to the oars while the going is good…
Rita Savage’s PS:
Very grateful thanks from Roz and myself to all those who are supporting her with their words and their messages of encouragement. Many of you have spoken of the inspiration she has given you to cope with your everyday situations.
We also very much appreciate the gifts of money that have been sent, and some regular payments, either to help Roz with the costs of the voyage, or as donations to the Princes Trust. Every bit helps. I know that some people are not in a position to donate as they are already committed to other causes; just knowing that they are interested in Roz is a gift in itself. I do enjoy reading the messages from various parts of the world that have been coming to Roz via the links on her website www.rozsavage.com
Thank you to one and all for your continuing interest and concern
