The Trip

I am truly blessed. I know that to be true in so many different ways. To be able to spend the time that I did with my son was a priceless event.

Amazingly all my fears about the trip were completely unnecessary, as many of you told me. The plane landed safely coming and going. Imagine that. Everything that I had on my “to do” list was done.

My sisters did a wonderful job with Mom and that is something that is invaluable for my piece of mind. We ate some of the finest food I have ever tasted and saw some of the most scenic landscape that God has put on this Earth.

Thursday night before I came back we went to this fabulous Middle Eastern market and bought the ingredients for stuffed grape leaves. We rolled about 150 of them and they were gone in no time.

Leaving was very difficult. I have not spent any time with my son in two years and three days didn’t seem hardly enough but we made it work. I would like to do this every year for our birthday week as a tradition. Next year I would like to go to the redwoods and stay for a bit.

Thank you to my family who without their help and support this trip would not have happened.

    My husband and I are so glad you had a great time. We did think and pray for you, for your safety, please and for you to NOT run into any ‘headaches’. Tell everyone we love them!!!!!

    • Thank you Angie. Everything went fine except the wait for the shuttle to take us to the rental car company. Even that worked to my advantage though. I complained enough about the 45 minute wait that they upgraded the rental from a Ford Focus to a Dodge Charger!

  4. I am glad you had a chance to do this.

  5. So glad that your fears were unfounded, and more than that, you had an amazing time!
    Love the idea of doing it every year. So happy for you!
