The sun is rising, coffee is brewing, and I’m packing to go see my daughter! Hannah moved to Minneapolis for a surgical residency a year ago in June and this is my first opportunity to visit. I can’t wait to see her life, meet her friends, cook in her kitchen, visit her church, and share some of her favorite places.
One of the sweet blessings of Hannah’s life is her Minneapolis family; you can read about them on Dorothy’s blog, Urban Servant. Dorothy is picking me up at the airport this afternoon and I suspect some wild and crazy times are in store for me.
Moms of little ones, they really do grow up and become not only your children, but precious friends. It’s a sweet and deep relationship that I love so much – like the hugest prize at the end of a long race. I’m extremely blessed to have five children who are incredible young adults…not to mention a great son-in-law and a very special young woman that I’ll introduce to you soon.
I guess I had better go pack; it’s 6:15 and the suitcase is sitting empty in my room. The good news is that I could probably show up with just my toothbrush and Hannah would have everything I need. I’m even hoping to find my next book group book on her shelves.
I’ll share some pictures soon!
Have a great Thursday, friends.
