The Thoughts After Jamboree in the Hills

This year at Jamboree in the Hills, Bordas & Bordas handed out cell phone wallets, a pouch to put on the back of your phone to hold credit cards, money or whatever you can fit into it. It was an awesome giveaway.  When you are handing these kinds of things out at events you get to meet a lot of interesting people.  This was Bordas & Bordas’ third year for a giveaway and I’ve been blessed to work all three. Last year we didn’t hand out anything and the people who came through the gate this year said how much they missed the Bordas & Bordas giveaway.  I saw so many familiar faces come through the line. Some people told me to come on over to where they were sitting and have a drink with them, or they said they were glad to see me back. This year, I got to meet a lot of new people and one young man and one group really stuck out in my mind.  The young man told me he was down on his luck and the Jamboree was the only thing that he had going for him at this time. We talked for a few minutes and when he was about to walk away I looked at him and asked him if he would like to pray with me to help him get though the crossroads in his life. He took my hand and we prayed together for a brief moment.  I felt blessed that maybe I might have helped him out to hopefully get back on the right path in his life. I also met people who had a dog kennel business in Ohio. We talked for a little bit and they said, “Bordas & Bordas? I know you, you’re the one with the dogs.”  I told them yes and I also started to tell them that I write a dog blog for Barley and Guinness on our web page, and right as I was telling them about the dog blog the man spoke up and said he had read the dog blogs before!  I was shocked and very surprised that anyone would read anything I write, even if it is for the dogs. I guess the moral of the story is that you’ll meet people along the way in your life and you’ll never know how you may have or could have helped them.  I hope my prayers for that young man will help him with the crossroads he is facing in his life and the nice people with the dog kennel will keep on reading the boys’ dog blog. Jamboree in the Hills 2016 is now in the books. Rock on people, rock on. And for my dog lovers out there, Bark on, Bordas Dog Nation, bark on.
