We Were the Destination

Palisade Falls
Jim took them for a day in the park.
A dear friend's cancer has returned..for the third time.  There is nothing the docs can do.  So, she is living out her Bucket List, which included a road trip, which included seeing us.  Three of her friends decided to make this dream come true and travel from Chicago with her on an 8 States in 8 Days trip.  They stayed with us two nights, and did all they could to see the wonderful offerings of this part of the country.  We wanted their time in our home to be wonderful, refreshing and a real blessing to them. 

Giggly girls staying up way too late.

 It was sobering to be with these ladies.  Knowing one is living out her dreams, knowing the other three were helping make her dreams come true.  My joy for life pales in comparison to theirs.

As they were leaving I thanked them for including a stop at our home on their fast and furious trip.  One said "Well, to tell you the truth, you WERE our destination and we planned everything else around you."  What a gift!  In our efforts to be a blessing to them, we in turn were blessed beyond measure. 

Safe travels home, girls!

I'm so glad you got that visit. I'm sure it is something you'll all cherish as you look back on it.
