Honestly, I was a little nervous about going back. I guess it was another "first" - first time being back there without Les. It had been 6 years since we visited. BUT besides the cold, cold rainy weather, I had a great time!! So much visiting, so much food.
My sister Sharon picked me up. When we drove from the airport in Omaha, I couldn't believe the miles and miles of farm land. Most of it had been plowed and planted, little 2 inch corn plants coming up. I had forgotten that there really is a beauty to that landscape! I had flown the last little bit through thunder storms (a VERY bumpy ride!!!!) and apparently Sharon and I were driving through near tornado conditions. We found out later that both Sioux Center and Orange City had sounded their tornado sirens that afternoon we were driving....whoops......... Good 'ol midwest thunderstorms!!!

I spent a morning with a college roommate, Kim. She lost her husband to a heart attack 8 years ago, so we had lots to talk about. We are connected through our loss. She is a dear soul.
