Big Sky Country

I am in Wyoming this week, working from my parents' home. Mom and Dad are pampering me and I'm enjoying chickens, horses, clean air, big skies and yesterday I heard thunder for the first time in years. (We don't get thunderstorm very often in SoCal!)

A 'mare's tail' rain cloud moving through....

I've needed the chance to come and see them. It's been two years, and I do not intend to let it go that long again! I will not let my situation at home interfere with something this important: spending time with my parents!

I will be home next week. In the meantime, I'm praying for all of us, and will try to make the rounds and catch up with everyone! We've had a bit of concerning news about my daughter and are contemplating what we will and won't offer her upon her release. Again, it's that fine line between enabling recovery, or enabling her to not face her own responsibilities. More thoughts on that later.

I am so filled with gratitude for the opportunity to spend time with Mom and Dad. That's at the top of a full, grateful heart today. :)
These pictures loaded "small", but hopefully you can click and 'embiggen' them to see them better. It's so pretty here!
