On the road again…

Tomorrow I fly back to Tampa. This time, instead of visiting my ailing mom, I will be getting there for her to be discharged from the rehab facility! so much improvement.

I am going to load up her stuff and move her to live with her youngest sister in Tennessee. It will be quite an adventure driving from Tampa to her new home.

The picture in my post is from the last visit. This 4’5″ lovely, true grit southern lady is the person for whom so many of you sent the kindest of greetings, best wishes, prayers, positive thoughts, love, and light. I thank you all so much! I hope you all will continue to think of us as we travel – two days worth of driving and resting along the way.

I’ll be back in a couple of weeks and yet again, will try to catch up as best I can. Take care of yourselves.  I’ll be back now, y’hear?

    I love the photo of your mum looking determined not to let life bring her down, Kanzen … but I don’t get the relavance of the bloody Beverley Hillbillies ! 🙂
    Hope your trip’s going swimmingly.

      Lol.. .because all of the stuff we’ll have crammed into our vehicle, among which will be a vintage 1900 victrola with about 80 one inch thick records, her computer, clothes, bibelots, etc. Like Jed and the clan, we may have stuff tied on top, the sides….luckily no critters will be with us!

    Kanzen, safe journey, both ways – I am so proud of you – you are a true spirit warrior woman – knowing your love of airplanes and traffic …. I hope and pray this adventure will bring laughter and sweet memories (and lots of roadside fresh fruit, etc.!) xxoo Huntie

    Kanzen – I hope everything is going well. Your mother is beautiful! And thank you for sharing the picture since now I have a face for my prayers instead of visualizing the state of Florida. 🙂

    I hope the journey went well and that you are having a grand old time with your folks. Love the Hillbilly connection. I took my son back to university recently and it felt similar: so many bags.

      Thank you! it is good to be back. Now if I can just get my “like” button to work as I catch up on reading….others have this problem and have spoken/written to WP but no solution. I don’t like to think of people thinking I am ignoring their posts. ☹
