I’m almost ready for bed. We’ve got the place all ready except for the last minute things tomorrow. Then we’ll hit the road and head for Kona. We have some things to do around here in the morning, then we’ll have lunch and leave. We’ll probably do some last minute whale watching on the way to Kona, and then we’re making a last minute trip to Wal-Mart to trade in the new camera, which isn’t working right. (The lens cover won’t close, and I replaced the last one because of the damaged lens, so I’ve got to get this replaced.). Then we have to be at the airport at 5:30pm to leave at 7:30pm. We’ll be in Houston tomorrow a little after 9am and we hang around there for nearly 4 hours. I hope Don can sleep; no doubt I can. We’ll get to OKC around 4 and Trish will pick us up and take us to grab hugs from all her family before we head off toward Louisville. We’ll spend the night somewhere on the way and be in Louisville Friday night! Whoopee!!!
As I reflect back on this trip, I know that the best part was the folks who came to share it with us. Pictured below are: Jo and Sam with Don; Susan and David; Tom and Linda; and Jerry and Doris with Don.
We had some rain and some wind, but we had lots of very warm weather compared to the ice age happening at home. We thought we were in heaven the whole time. Thanks so much to everyone who came and helped to make this time special. Thanks so much to Bob and Dee for opening their home to us and even furnishing us with a kitty to keep my feet warm at night and one to hug me when I do laundry. They are wonderful company, but don’t meet up to the great folks who came; we all felt at home here.
I’m checking out and will be back as soon as possible. Tomorrow night I’ll be on the plane, so there may not be an update tomorrow; maybe I can write one in the Houston airport while we wait, though. We’ll see what happens, but don’t worry if you don’t see anything new tomorrow. Here’s one last picture of our newest grandbaby smiling in her sleep; I still think she looks like me because she’s short and she loves to sleep. J Praise God for her and all our family and friends. I thank Him for all our safe travels, safe births, and for our safekeeping during this time. I ask Him to guide me through winning over this cancer and to guide us all through each day as we face new challenges in a way that is pleasing to Him. I love you all.
Is she precious, or what??? She’s precious Elena Morgan! J
