And I'm so darn proud of myself I can hardly stand it! My trusty GPS led me right up the holler and I am STILL amazed! I'm SUPERWOMAN! This was such a huge test of strength and faith to myself and I passed with flying colors! All your good thoughts and prayers paid off - the weather was great and the trip went MUCH easier than I thought. And honestly, up until the moment I woke up Wednesday morning, even I didn't know if I'd really be brave enough to go or not.... but here I am. And as soon as I post this, I'm gonna go find someone to help me with a dulcimer refresher lesson :)
It wasn't easy to find a network connection down here, but I was talkin' to a guy and asked him to help me and he showed me a secret wifi. Cool! Even if I am sittin on the ground and can hardly see the screen for the sun - still - it's wifi and it's all good *grin*. And I gotta tell ya about this - believe it or not, there's a chinese food place in Glenville. I'm totally amazed - anyway - long story short - I got a fortune cookie last night. Those fortunes always have a word to practice in chineses, usually "flower" or something equally as useful. This time... my word was "father". I was stunned. And not only that... on the other side, the fortune said something like "be happy in doing what others say you cannot do". Amazing.
Dad is doing good - and I am amazingly and abundantly blessed.
