Leaving home is not easy, but when love of family calls, we love to answer!
I traveled from the coast of North Carolina to the edge of the Mississippi River for my little girl's baby shower.
It's a flying trip, four days of driving in a five-day journey. I had my younger daughter and my daughter-in-law for company most of the way. Tomorrow I make my way home alone.
I enjoyed worshiping with Anna and Gramm, and a covered dish meal afterward. Check out the gorgeous wooden table their church uses to serve the food!
We also stayed at an Air B&B owned by Gramm's family that is super cool, the Blues House Flat.
I'm so proud of how hard all my kids work. Gramm keeps so busy with all his responsibilities, and he's added this spectacular place to the list.
Today I'm resting at Philip and Kara's house before the long drive tomorrow. We tootled up to the mountain to see the renovation work they've done to the college's old building, Carter Hall.At last I think they're putting a new roof on the leaky chapel.
Time with my children comes too seldom, passes too fast, and is more precious as the years pass. Now a sweet grandbaby is added, soon to be born, and how that will complicate things! I can't wait.
