Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

I just returned from quite a trip.
Miles and miles of road. About 2600, to be exact. A small SUV....one that held five adults almost comfortably, lots of luggage, camping equipment and food for one full week, and, well, five adults.
Four states. Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana and then the reverse through two times zones.
Fun. Moments of irritation. Laughter. Adventure. Critters. Amazing scenery wrapped around winding roads, hairpin turns and switchbacks.
Let me share....
