An Extraordinary Gift!


I have been given a most wonderful, special, extraordinary gift! Paid airfare to visit someone very special to me. Actually three 'someones'! They are extended adopted family. I feel guilty accepting this wonderful gift knowing that she probably could put the money to better use than paying to have an 'old woman' visit, but it is what she wishes to do and I have prayed about it and gotten my answer. And I am going! My flight out leaves Sunday, September 30th at 5:55 AM and I return Thursday, Oct. 11th at 3:05 PM. I will even be attending the Texas State Fair! Woo-Hoo!

Thank you dear Ame for this wonderful gift!

But I have to admit I'm a little disppointed....you'll be gone when I'm there visiting. :(
