Our South Dakota Vacation

This summer we went to the Black Hills in South Dakota and yes even got some Warrior signs here! We stopped at this 1880’s town with a gift shop, diner, restrooms, and gas station. We just needed to do our business, walk the dog, and stretch our legs but for me it became a little bit more.
We walked around some and noticed this old train parked in front of the diner. This was the Santa Fe Train Stop Diner. An actual sign again and a train with Warrior’s hometown across the front. Wow… I remembered Vince saying: ” He’s like a runaway locomotive when he gets going!” So super cool for me to see!!
Once we got to our cabin later in the day, the owners greeted us along with their kids and two friendly dogs. The one dog was named Daisy which totally reminded me of Dana’s blog about a week before our trip when she mentioned Warrior’s beloved dog Daisy. Of all the girl dog names, this one was a Daisy, how special..
A few days later we decided to find this old watering hole for the kids and dog to go swimming. Afterwards, we began the long trek back up very rocky ground with lots of tree roots, cliffs, and winding paths. As usual I’m the caboose( haha– train metaphor! 🚂) but that’s o.k. They all went ahead and I was feeling hot, tired, and so sick of this trail by now.
As I was growing despondent, I looked right and saw a huge patch of daisies growing wild. No other flowers were around at all. I called the others to see but they were too far ahead. I just smiled and got up more strength, courage, and gusto to finish that climb. Why were they daisies? I think I know but they made all my weaknesses vanish so I could suck it up and keep going on my chosen path.

I'm a wife, mom of 2 and have always been a huge fan of WWE’s the Ultimate Warrior despite his passing. I created this blog to share my stories relating to him that happened years ago and some are continuing today with his Spirit alive and well! I hope some fans out there relate and enjoy my blog!!! Check out my book “Spirit and Belief” on how Warrior influenced me in spirit. It is filled with humor, family stories, psychic terms, following my intuition, and how everyone has natural abilities we can tap into or get guidance upon.
