What a day it has been! To start, I slept in without coughing all night (haaaaa-lle-lujah 🙌🏻!) while hubby got up early to log on and finish his work for the day. We had a wonderful continental breakfast (were staying at the Holiday Inn), and then hit the road.
Our oldest son’s name is Ronan (Ro-nin) and there is an Indian reservation town 40 miles north of Missoula called Ronan (pronounced Ro-naan). We obviously had to drive up and take a photo. We had no clue it would be so gorgeous!
The call Montana “The Big Sky State” or “God’s Country”, and now I see why. The entire ride I felt as if God was in the car with me. The mountain majestic, the hills green, the sky endless, and the water full of life…Montana (or at least the part I’ve seen) is spectacular! I’ve been sick, nervous, busy, stressed and scared until today. Today I was able to wander around a new place, witness unimaginable natural beauty, spend time with my love, and think about the last 17 months as well as the next 2 days.
I’ve felt an array of feelings since SIJD took my body from me, but that doesn’t matter. What matters most is how I feel right now, 2 days before my life changes. While we were driving today, I felt God tell me “it all going to be ok”. No really, I felt those word coming from the sky, into my rental car, into my being. I have a hope inside of me that I’ve never known. Regardless of the outcome of this surgery, I’m definitely going to take a peace away from my time in Missoula that I’ve never had. For that, I am grateful 💜🔩✨
