Summoned by the Bitterroot

Gone Fishing

No, I didn't get run over by our moving van; nor am I buried in the box rubble residing in our garage. It's been a long, rugged two weeks of moving & unpacking.

That said, we are eagerly preparing for tomorrow morning's early departure to Montana, where all 16 of our immediate family are headed for a week of R&R, fly-fishing, flashlight tag, s'mores, hiking, board (& bored) game-playing, hide-and-go seek, tall-tale spinning around the fire or on the fly, and the like.

Again I apologize for my lengthy absence from the blogosphere, but you can be sure I'm excited to get settled enough to return to blogging, and to visiting all of you.

Can't wait for the gIRLs Gathering in September, either!!! What a time & blessing it will be to huddle up with such dear friends as Melinda, Elaine, Beth & Lisa. Who else is going?

But for now I've truly "Gone Fishing". See you after the 13th.

Love to all,

I'm so glad you will have this time fishing with your family. How fun that sounds. I remember you talking about this trip when we were able to spend time together.

The gIRLs Gathering sounds like fun. I know that Beth and Elaine are thrilled to get to meet you.

I'm sending you a hug across the miles.

Love to you,

You are missed! Sounds like a real special time for all of you in Montana. It is good that you all set time apart to celebrate and spend time together. Have fun!

As for your time together with dear friends, in September...well, that just sounds wonderful! Some year I hope to attend. Can't wait to hear about it.

Have a wonderful time, sweet Sassy. In fact, think you could squeeze me into your suitcase? I'm more than ready for a vacation after the past couple of weeks!

Thank you so much for your faithfulness to pray for my brother, Jimmy, and our family. Prayers are what have gotten us through this difficult time. He needs healing in many areas of his life, so your continued prayers are greatly appreciated.

I can hardly wait for September, either. :-)
