Road Warrior

I loved Montana so much last week, I’m headed there again this morning (Thursday, July 7, 2011).

I’ve got my bags packed, my Ipod loaded and a couple bottles of sunscreen.

I’ll spend time in Missoula helping my sister Judy recover from surgery. Please pray for her on July 8, 2011.

Then I hope to have some time all to myself at Georgetown Lake to finally finish the edits on Gabe’s book!

I’ll end my time away by myself with a 35th class reunion with my high school friends on the weekend of July 15-17th.

I can’t wait to hang with some of my girlfriends!

Art in the Park watch out….the AHS Class of 76 is in town!

I don’t mind the travel because I listen to awesome praise and worship music and audio books.

This time I’m enjoying the audio book titled, THE HELP.

I highly recommend this novel. Click on the book cover and it will take you to Amazon where you can read more about the book. I will blog a book review next week.

See you under the Big Blue Montana Sky!

God Bless Your Warrior Heart.


In Remembrance

Georgetown Lake 7.2.11

I spent a glorious weekend under the Big Blue Montana Sky.

Georgetown Lake (located about 90 miles south of Missoula, MT) was absolutely beautiful with warm weather, snow capped mountains and loads of family and friends.

We spent Saturday, July 2, 2011 with our California cousins remembering their parents, my aunt and uncle, Jim and Amelia McMahon.

We gathered around the new tombstone in the burial plot where we finally laid their ashes together to rest.

Jim and Amelia were a rare couple who willingly spent quality time with our huge family. They had five of their own yet they welcomed the ten Devine kids.

After the memorial service we went back to the lake. We made more memories on the same boat dock at Eccleston bay where we spent many a summer day catching minnows and frogs.

The new tradition is the Georgetown Lake 4th of July parade where my siblings and nieces and nephews created a Pirates of Georgetown float.

Arrrgghhh Matey.

All in all it was a wonderful way to spend time with family and share the memories of days gone by.  I have to admit, I learned a little about myself on this trip.

I feel another blog coming on as a result of these new revelations. Stay tuned…

Remember to take time to celebrate your loved ones long before you are standing at their graveside.

Carpe Diem!
