Wow we had color in our lives and really big and totally grand, heart-stopping splendor.
Each time we were able to walk and find trails our size and length-and met some really fine people. At delicate arch we met a man and his son just because of a beautiful lizard. A short friendly visit brought a really great story. The 24 year old son had bicycled from Iowa to where we were. Dad followed later in his car. The cycle trip would have been a good story of his meeting wonderful people who fed him and took care of him. However, there was even more. 7 years earlier he had been in a car wreck-one arm had two metal rods to replace shattered bones, one leg had a rod and his right eye was glass. I was so thankful for the gift of meeting he and his father.
Today we are driving from Salt Lake to Idaho Falls. Dad has had some serious problems health wise and I we need to support Karole. His recent throwing up was caused by so many ulcers from his esophagus to stomach, and a gall bladder so full of stones that the doctor was in shock. Also Dad says he has not been in pain. Thank God for Russ who did not bat an eye, just said we have to go. We had thought we were going to visit SL and site see and then leave Monday for home in Walnut Creek. Now we have no idea what we will be doing.
The lesson of our journey- live today with intention and attention
