Home once again ...

The southern tip of Lake Michigan,
somewhere near Gary, Indiana and Chicago

The Chicago skyline from the air ...
isn't that the Sear's Tower in the center?

Lake Michigan ... but I am not sure where I am!
I think somewhere a bit north of St. Joseph ...
 With all of the hassle associated with flying nowadays, you would think I would be sick to death of it ~ but I'm not! I still cannot get over the thrill of being 5 miles up in the sky, looking out across God's vast creation. When I book a flight, I almost always choose a window seat. The one-hour and fifteen minute flight from El Paso to Dallas/Ft. Worth zooms on by with my face glued to the window! And the little-over two-hour flight from Dallas to Grand Rapids never seems very long either. Today, I was lucky enough to fly over Lake Michigan without cloud cover! I love seeing my lake from the air. 
 Kelly and baby Brendan were kind enough to pick me up at the airport this afternoon. We drove home and then spent some time together ... I have missed my chunky little grandson!

I think Brendan was happy to see me too! He had so many smiles and giggles today. Kelly and I and Brendan played for more than an hour.
Since I set my alarm for 3:30 a.m. El Paso time and actually woke up 20 minutes ahead of time, got up and showered and finished packing ... I am a bit more than tired this evening. I'm going to work on doing my laundry and then retire early so that I am ready for my day tomorrow. My heart is sad to leave El Paso ... but it is always always good to be home again.

Carol: Love the shots of Lake MI. I tried to get some on my way home, but nothing showed up. Glad all went well on your flight home, and I know Brendan was glad to see you as it shows all over him--see he has C. George--always a good read. He's growing too. Enjoy your first full day home. When I was in E.P., I never got used to the time change and was always awake early, had to be very quiet cause Chris always seemed to hear me and was up.
Take care and God Bless.
