Whirlwind trip to big city

Friday, I took a personal day from work - one I seldom take as most of the days I take are taking Mom to doctor or one of us being sick. But I drove to Atlanta early Friday and got to meet my dear son's girlfriend's parents. Delightful to meet and hope it is one of many times we have an opportunity to spend time together. The evening time gave us an opportunity to meet up with my friend Beth and her sister in law and we ate at a local restaurant. What an enjoyable Friday!

Early Saturday, we drove to the cathedral to hear Barbara Brown Taylor speak on the Sabbath. Lots to chew on in terms of our culture and what we have done or not done in terms of observing that sacred time. Needless to say, a bookstore was right there in the cathedral and I succumbed to temptation in a good way. Was modest in my purchases, knowing full well there will be a next time. I will share one of the books I purchased later in another post as I get a grab on what it means to me and how it will impact me spiritually.

On the way home, I could have done without a car accident, but happened it did and fenders took the brunt of the damage. Safe, I am home - not quite sure how I made it home as I was exhausted from the tension of the accident. But made it home I did.


  1. Whew! Glad to hear you made it safely home in spite of the accident!

  2. Hearing Barbara Brown Taylor speak on the Sabbath must have been wonderful! I am looking forward to hearing about your books. And so glad you are home safely.

  3. Glad you had a nice experience at the Cathedral. hope the car is OK after teh wreck and you are not too sore. I love to buy books too. It is one of my weaknesses!

  4. I'm so sorry about your accident! That will certainly fray the nerves, but I'm glad it's over and you're okay.

    What a treat to get to hear Barbara Brown Taylor! She came to Furman University a year or two ago and was so inspiring. I sat on the front row like a groupie!

  5. Good heavens Cathy! So sorry to hear about your accident!! Hope you're doing okay!

    I miss you -
