Don Wood Posted February 16, 2004 Share Posted February 16, 2004 We have two kids in the Houston area (Jim and Frances) and the youngest (Randy) is in Dallas. Lucie had not been to Randy's home since her diagnosis 16 months ago, and she was anxious to go. We are planning a trip to Scotland in May, so she really needs to get out and build up her stamina. She has gone back to water aerobics -- went twice this past week -- so that has been good. She looks good, feels good. So, for Valentine's, we drove up to Dallas (about 4 hours) on Friday. The weather was drizzly in the Houston area, but just overcast in the Dallas area. So the drive was fine. Lucie got to see the new things our son has done for his house and we went out to dinner together. It was a nice evening. Saturday morning, we awoke to snow! It was sooo beautiful! We went out and walked in it for a while. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Lucie got the traditional roses and heart-shaped box of chocolates for Valentine's.=, but the trip was her greatest thrill. She did well. Saturday, we went shopping and then out to dinner again that night. Our son has a hot tub in his back yard so we actually went in the hot tub while it was snowing! Crazy, huh? It was a blast. And Sunday, when it was time to return to Houston, the sun was out, most of the snow was gone, and the roads were dry. So we had a nice drive home. It was truly a gift -- the visit, the snow, the peace. And she did so well, we are encouraged to move forward with plans for May. We have sent a new picture to Rick which hopefully can be used to update us. It shows us in the Dallas snow. How blessed can we be?
