Trip to Utah

This past week I had the privilege to travel to Utah and see many people that I love.

What a joy to see my adult children functioning happily in their college world!

We had a wonderful gathering at Melanie's home (unfortunately I forgot to take pictures). Greg reported on his mission experience and made his mama proud. We ate the best pizzas in the world.

Monday Dad and I went on an outing to the ranch. It was a sacred experience to share memories of that beautiful place together. We stopped by Hires for a rootbeer freeze.

I went to lunch with 3 of my sisters... we missed martha! What a thrill to see Merry's school and the difference she is making in the lives of so many children and educators... way to go Miss Merry! Aren't sisters wonderful!

In Provo we shopped til we dropped, but I left feeling grateful to leave Greg and Jessie a bit more settled and having seen where they live. I loved staying at Jessie's apartment and meeting her delightful roommates.

It is tough to have your heart spread out across the country.

Family is the great blessing of my life... to be sandwiched in between two great generations and so many to love and admire.
