I just arrived in California for a visit! I flew in last night and am here until next Wednesday.

This is a precious gift of time to visit with family and friends for long stretches each day. I'm incredibly thankful! I'm looking forward to lots of card games with Mom, lunch at Miguel's with Beth, a special birthday breakfast with Dad, and loooong afternoons of good conversation with Sara, Kate, and Hannah.

Thank you, my sweetie, for this wonderful, generous gift. I know it is a sacrifice for you, but a sacrifice of love for the good of my heart. I feel so cherished by you.
