It's Been Awhile

Well, it's been awhile since I last gets moving and I neglect the blog.

My mother suffered a stroke about a month ago, and I'm driving to see her (and Dad) about 3-4 times a week. Mom's also dealing with cancer that's metastasized, so I want to spend as much time as possible with her. Your prayers and caring thoughts are appreciated.

Fortunately, my parents' town is only about an hour away--not an ocean away! I'd be flying back and forth a lot if we were still in Germany.

Speaking of oceans, we just returned from a weekend trip to Bandon, Oregon. Time on the beach, yay. Here's a quote from Anna:

‎"What's the beach for, if not squinching toes?"

I agree. My vacation wouldn't have been complete without a little squinching of toes in Bandon's lovely sand.
