ANNUAL CAMPING TRIP AT BLISSFUL CABIN RETREAT 2019The 7th Annual Camping trip was a wonderful weekend to remember. To think, this camping trip almost didn’t happen. All of the joy, all of the smiles, all of the warmth and happiness displayed in the photos below almost didn’t come to be. It seems kind of absurd when you look at these photos and the high vibration they emit, and imagine that anything at all could possibly stand in the way of this! THANKFULLY, we didn’t let any of the obstacles we faced steal the joy we were intent on creating and it’s very apparent that this undertaking had divine intervention because everything was truly perfect! The right people showed up to volunteer and love on the Blissful kids, in fact some would say they were heaven sent! We had an outstanding and wholehearted volunteer team working in perfect synchrony the entire weekend, which included several of our guests who happily rolled up their sleeves and helped out.The weather was amazing – sunshine all day and perfect sleeping weather at night. If you are not convinced yet that our camping trip had angelic guidance, perhaps you will be when I tell you this – there were virtually no mosquitoes! We would even venture to say that this was our most successful camping trip yet in terms of intuitive collaboration and consistent contentment. And the food all weekend was plentiful and off the charts delicious thanks to our elite and magical kitchen team and the generous food donations we received. We didn’t quite raise enough funds to cover the total costs and some bills will be rolling in shortly, but we are hopeful that the rest of the funds needed will spontaneously appear after any hesitant supporters see what we were able to manifest despite all of the hurdles we had to jump.
