And Straight On Till Morning

Look at this kid. Doncha just wanna squeeze him? Mom does, too. And that’s exactly what she’s going to do today.

Mr. Squeezable is Christopher – Mom’s great-grandson, my grandson, Kim and Jeremy’s proud creation. Christopher and his parents live in Tulsa, a bazillion miles away, and Mom can’t wait anymore. So she’s getting on a big Delta jet right now.

It was all Marsha’s idea. Marsha is Jeremy’s mom, and she wants to squeeze her grandson, too. She lives pretty close to Mom and thought it’d be a fun trip for her. So, she made the arrangements, bought the tickets, and off they go.

Mom has always loved traveling, but hasn’t been able (or willing) to do much of it in recent years. We’ll see how she fares, but I think that the next five days will be heart-warming and wonderful for all. They’re even going to see a live performance of Veggie Tales. Can you picture Mom surrounded by singing, jumping toddlers? It makes me giggle just thinking about it.

    I have asked that Marsha take LOTS of pictures so we can enjoy the visit afterwards.

      Yep. And I’ve asked JC to post some pics and videos on FB during the visit, and he and Kim have already come up with an album concept to give to Marsha and to Mom.

    I think this is the first flight she’s taken since she last went to Florida to visit Margaret and Jean. Nearly 10 years, perhaps? Anyway, I hope they have tons of fun and bonding time!
