Today we are on our way to Minnesota, please pray traveling mercies for us, it is a long drive, about 8 hours.
We are hoping to leave early enough to drop off Iz at my sisters and make it there in time to see Judy's family before we check into the hotel.
The service will be at 11:00 am on Thursday. If we are able we plan on leaving right after the service and driving straight home. I don't know if we will be able to do that. We are used to driving 4 or 5 hours in the coach and then stopping. This will be about 8 hours in the car and then spending the night in a hotel.
It has been about 5 years since we have stayed anywhere except at the stick house or the coach.
Izzie is going to spend the night at my sister's, first time she has ever stayed away from us, I don't think my poor sister will get much sleep.
If Iz does good at my sister's the first night we might just drive half way on Friday and spend the night in Madison and get home Friday. I think we have to accept we are not as young as we used to be.
Please remember me these next few days, Pray that I have the strength to do what I need to do to remember and honor the friendship Judy and I had.
I am so sad I cannot put it into words. Thanks to all of you who wished me well and given me works of support.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
