I left Aiken this morning in time to make it to Columbia and meet up with my friend Charlotte for lunch with Jason.
Olive Garden was very busy and Jason was working the bar area so we sat up at the bar, visiting and chatting with him when he could between customers.
I love watching my son work--how his coworkers like and respect him, and love watching him interact with his customers. Watching grown children finding their place in the universe is an amazing thing!
I can't take credit for how he turned out either---sometimes I think that is in spite of me---
This morning Sally and I took a walk around her pastures so I could say goodbye to the horses. Such gentle magnificent creatures! I love how they love Sally!
She will walk up to them and get close, talking to them with a gentle voice and they will just lay their heads on her shoulder. It is so tender.
I think we learn far more from the animals than they learn from us.
I've reached Charlotte, NC---about 2 hours left to go!
Come back this evening---I'll be drawing for the 3 winners of Pieced Hexies!!
