Some have asked where I am going when I go stateside this year. Yes, I will be visiting family and friends and putting a bit of a twist to it this year.
Lord willing I will fly from Guam to Tennessee via Hawaii and Chicago arriving the same day as I left but at least 21 hours later thanks to the International Date Line. I am visiting a retired teacher and will be going to Branson, Missouri for the musicals and then going to Bardstown, Kentucky for the Stephen Foster program. Then returning to her home.
I will then fly to South Bend, Indiana to visit another retired teacher for a few days and then to Portland, Oregon, for a grand nieces graduation from Nursing School and a get together with my nieces and nephews.
I will leave for Albuquerque, New Mexico the following Tuesday for a visit with another retired teacher who was my mentor when I started teaching. We will be attending a Messianic Christian Service while I am there of which I am very excited!
When I leave Albuquerque I will fly up to Denver and meet a niece and we will drive to McCook, Nebraska and then up to Arnold, Nebraska where my Mom was born in 1905. I have always wanted to see the plains from the ground and always wanted to see where my Mom spent much of her childhood before completely settling on the West Coast.
We will return to Denver and I will fly to Portland and join a cousin on the Washington coast for a few days. We will be attending a family reunion that has been going on for years. I remember being at one of these get togethers when I was about five years old.
After the reunion in a matter of days I will be returning to Guam.
Now is that enough to make your head swim?
Anyway I may get on SP sometimes depending on whomever I am stay with having a
computer. There are a few that do not.
All of this flying is done on standby but God has been good and I may not get to where I want to go as early as I want but I usually get there in a reasonable time. Prayers are appreciated.
Hope you all have a good summer.
Jane, soon leaving Guam to see America!
