Travel Journal Day 2

“A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints” ~Wilfred Peterson 

Left this evening after work on the first leg of the journey to Mom's in Montana.  We'll be stopping in St. Louis and stay the night at Rhonda and John's house.  Family is such a treasure.  Because there ave been some highway closing along the route this year because of all the rain an flooding along the Missouri River we called to see if  they knew of any routes to take that would have less delays.  John told us of a route  he had taken recently and then invited us to leave early, spend the night there and in so doing we will arrive at Mom's a day earlier than we had anticipated.  

And to add to the days treasures I found this quote by Saint Brigid of Ireland...

"I would like the angels of heaven to be among us.  I would like an abundance of peace.  I would like full vessels of charity.  I would like rich treasures of mercy.  I would like cheerfulness to preside over all.  I would like Jesus to be present."

And so I wish all these things on this journey!

Thanks be to God
