I really ought to research how many times in the last 10 years I’ve used that headline. At any rate, we’ve been on the road since Friday and we’re spending the night tonight in Sunny Acres RV park in Las Cruces, NM. We started staying here when Raymond was in the hospital at the time of his double amputation. We’ve been back numerous times since 2017. Today we quit about 1:30 with winds about to get nasty.
Our usual fall migration begins November 9, after Jadelyn, our youngest granddaughter’s birthday. This year she’s 16 and had other things to do on her birthday, so we celebrated on Thursday. She chose Texas Roadhouse and we had a very enjoyable time, after we convinced the birthday girl it was okay to be celebrated.
After dinner we went to her big sister Bailey’s apartment to continue the party with a banner, LOTS of balloons and cake and ice cream. I have a hard time thinking about her being 16 already and dating age. Her dad’s going to need a big stick, I think.
We’re so grateful that at least one good thing has come out of the Covid pandemic. We were able to have the worship service from Northridge Friends Church right here in the RV with us as we traveled. We sang along at full volume and didn’t have to wear out masks!
Speaking of the virus, we have several friends who have been dealing with it to various degrees. Some have had milder symptoms, while at least one friend spent 9 days on a ventilator and is now learning to walk all over again. Any time you think about those who have tested positive, no matter how severe their symptoms, pray for them! Knowing that people are praying is what is getting them through as God heals them.
We’d appreciate prayers as we travel, too. See you down the road!
