We started off in Texas and went through all these states: Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and finally New York!!! Traveling through all those states we didn’t have to pay any tolls. To enter the wonderful state of NY we had to pay two – total, $13.00. Ah, tolls, it’s coming back to me now. It was New York State’s way of saying: Welcome home.
I have to tell you as much fun as we have had on our very long trip; it’s great to be home. I look forward to getting the PODS unloaded and sleeping in my own bed. I can’t wait to cook a meal in my own kitchen and to no longer live out of a suitcase.
Tom and I stopped at my sister’s house to see my mom. She lives in Pennsylvania with her. It was good to see my sister, my niece and my brother-in-law also. My mom is 83 and is the sweetest person ever. I loved seeing her and spending time with her. We talk often on the phone (every week) but it’s not the same. I loved all the kisses and hugs I got when I got there and throughout. This is a picture of my mom.
I want to thank all of you who have come along this long journey with Tom and I. I want to thank all of you that we stayed with along the way. Tom and I had a great time together traveling in the car. We look forward to settling in and getting to know the people at the new church. This is an exciting time for us.
