The Journey


We were thrilled to finally take a little road trip with very good friends last week.  The perfect day for a drive on the Natchez Trace Parkway.  A picnic happened, the Dogwood trees were still in bloom, and we stopped at all the "scenic views" listed in the brochure. The speed limit is low, the road is curvy as you go north, and although I promised we would see deer, wild turkeys were plentiful instead.


Much like our life right now, our pace is slower and we don't know what is around the next curve.  Many of you have asked lately how we are doing.  Rex's memory is a little worse and he is a little more unsteady.  We have good days and bad days.  But, he is still able to enjoy the family activities and the grand kids.  I told someone yesterday, "We don't like the journey that we are on, but we are thankful for where we are on the path."

Michie,

I was just wondering about you and your husband the other day. Thanks for the update. I'll be praying for you both. But I'm glad you are able to appreciate the good times during this difficult time for your family!
