When I first heard the prompt I was thinking Seussical the musical…We are Here! We are here Then we travelled. Well, we tried to travel. Melinda and i to the FMF retreat. After a short 2 1/2 hour detour, thanks to a flat tire that was not only flat, but shredded, well into shreds, we ARRIVED!
No, Seussical, no longer applies. But “We ARE HERE!” WE ARE HERE” definitely applies.
What should have been an uneventful 9 hour drive, became a 12 hour + but not a drive. But a detour. A time to laugh or cry…we laughed. We took pictures, we had Fun. Yes, on the side of the interstate…
And then we arrived! Winding, curving through the sweet Tennessee roads, to the house! Greeted by the precious FMF ladies. Already in full swing of 2 truths and a lie. And sweet fellowship….
God watched over us. Put us near Metropolis. A tire shop next to the Chinese buffet. A welcome site to weary travelers.
5 minutes is almost up and l would rather spend real-time with precious FMF ladies…
I’ll see you here next week!
