A Few Good Words

We obviously made it to NM safely and have been enjoying our brief visit with Paul's family. We even had time to hit a couple of shops I used to love. We picked up a couple of souvenirs for home and had some wonderful local cuisine....lots of red and green chile'! Yum-O!

Tomorrow we head out of the Land of Enchantment and back to our fair city...our home. As nice as it is to get away, there is not much like pulling into the drive-way back home after a few hours on the road.

Tonight was the actual graduation party. Paul's sister got her Master's in City Planning and has worked in the field for a few years already. I don't doubt she'll make history one day in her field...she's that bright!

For me the highlight of the evening was visiting with the young lady whose wedding we attending on our visit last May. She and I were able to sit and visit and talk about the first year of marriage; struggles and blessings. We talked about family and life and hopes and dreams. She's such a sweet young lady and one of my favorite NM people!

Paul and both decided we couldn't live in NM again. It's an awesome place to visit, but it just isn't home anymore.

I pray Sunday brings inspiration and peace!

I'm glad you're having such a good visit. Sometimes its strange to go back to a place you lived & realize that you won't ever live there again...but to be content with that knowledge is always good!

Safe trip home!

Sounds like a whirlwind trip, but fun as well. As Thomas Wolfe said, "You can't go home again." I'm going to visit my old home, Minnesota, this summer, and am looking forward to good visits and then heading home!
