In Washington! :-)

I'm in the van with my mother, sisters and dearly beloved grandmother. :-) It's a pleasant morning in western Washington, with the sun filtering down through the trees, a slight breeze making the leaves tremble with joy. We're on our way to town to pick up ingredients for making homemade icecream for the anniversary party. And Grandma is talking about making salmon for dinner. :-) So, it's a happy time at the moment.

I was wondering if you all could pray for us? We are scheduled to sing at the party but a number of us are battling colds. (Surprise! :-P) As the head of the group, I'm feeling a little stressed. I know that it will all work out for the best in the end, but I need patience and wisdom as I make decisions that will be pleasing to the Lord. It will be fun to see everyone again and a little nerve wracking singing for them. LOL! A lot of these people have known us since we were babies. ;-) Lovingly, of course. Hehe.

The trip went fairly well. The first day, Ruth got car sick.... she didn't warn anyone so it went on her pillow and Hannah's sleeve (who was seated next to her). Ruth hadn't been feeling well all day, so it wasn't a big surprise. Needless to say, we were so very glad to arrive in MT that night! 17 hours on the road that day and over 11 yesterday. That's a lot of hours on the road. We were doubly glad to finally see our grandparents again. :-)

Happy Canada Day!! :-)

Hello there, Naomi! :)

I was wondering... could I publish your post "Thoughts...Wonderings... and Jonah Days"? I enjoyed it and I think a lot of people could relate to it. :)It's one of those articles you laugh at, yet at the same time say, "I know exactly what she felt like! " If you don't mind me printing it, could I shorten the title to simply "Jonah Days" ? I am not sure if it would be in the next issue, but soon. :)

Just let me know next letter or via this blog. :)

Love you! Bekah

Oh and tell Lydia I enjoy her blog but am unable to leave a comment on it. :( She had me laughing. :)
