What A Day!

Other than the actual day of Mom’s surgery, Friday was my longest day. After about 7 hours on the road, I arrived in Benson, AZ around 3:30 pm, confirmed Aunt Margaret was at home and then drove the 30 miles or so south to Sierra Vista. The picture you see here is she and Uncle […]

I’ll drive about 425 miles to Sierra Vista, AZ, where Great-Aunt Margaret and her husband, Dominick, live. I am really looking forward […]

God is amazing to me … how He orders things and puts you in places (sometimes geographical, but sometimes emotional, and […]

A Rainy Day In Texas

After a late night arrival and a good night’s sleep, it’s now been a rainy day here in Texas. The thunder I was hoping to experience has been somewhat common throughout the day, and I do love it! I am currently writing from what my parents call my “second office” whenever I visit them. That […]
