In Gatlinburg, TN & I am once again in love with this area! God's beauty is all around (once you get past all the "attractions". I much prefer to be around God's attractions instead of mans.
When we first got to the cabin, my first thought was - how great Mom is! We are sitting on top of the mountain looking across the range! It started to rain while we were eating & when Mom & Dad got here there was a full rainbow. I couldn't get a full picture but it was grand as I viewed it over the mountains.
I really needed this time away. Work has been great, but hectic & Mike & I have not had any time away with the 2 of us & the kids. He's taken a mini break to go fishing & I've taken a mini break to see Tina & then one with the kids to Atlanta & a quick weekend to visit a Nikki in Orlando, but for all of us for more than a couple of days...it's been a while.
My friend Gabe came to visit yesterday! That was so great! I have not seen him in almost 20 years & I have missed him. I met his family & it was just an overall good few hours. Not enough time though, so we'll have to get back together again in the near future.
So I'm going to wrap this up & head into the hot tub! AAhhh...I can feel myself relaxing already.
