Patty and I drove up to Trout Lake today and visited with my Mom and then drove home. It took us 3 hours to drive up, and we spent from 11 am until 4 pm with her, and then headed back home and got here at 7 pm. Seems like a lot of driving for 5 hours of visiting, but it was quite enjoyable. The roads were clear, Patty drove most of the way, we prayed, talked, I read and slept, and she listened to Christian music on the radio singing along with the songs she knew. We purchased a device for Mom that she wears like a watch and if she falls she pushes this button and a warning goes out to 4 different people. Hopefully that will allow her to live by herself for a few more years. I always feel good when I am able to bless my Mom with a visit and have some great fellowship together.
I am always in such a hurry trying to get lots done, it is refreshing to have a day like today and just sit, read, visit ,and sleep. Back at it tomorrow with some added adventure with the weather perhaps.
