Waiting Well


Five women.  A weekend in West Virginia.  Cool weather and rain.  Planes, no trains, and automobiles.  Excited hellos and warm hugs.  Beautiful scenery.  Winding roads.

Mini golf?  Rain and it’s closed.  Quick visit to the nature center.  Snakes!  Zoo?  Nope, more rain.  Time to check out the museum.  Old things, history, beautiful clothes, period furniture.  Press one to learn more about how this room was used.  Is that a man or woman in that painting?  Press two to learn more about the portraits on the wall.  Poor, poor, unfortunate woman.

Visit the gift shop.  Good chocolate cheap.  Magnet: You will always be my friend.  You know too much about me.  Fairy gardens and beautiful crystal.

Gluten free.  Dairy Free.  Soy free.  Great food.  Warm chocolate chip cookies.  Flowing wine.  After church grocery run.

Daily Mass.  Morning Prayer.  Canticle of Zechariah.  Watched over by Pope Francis.  Grace before meals.  Majestic cathedral.  Vigil Mass.  Chapel in our house.  Eucharistic adoration.

Heartfelt talks.  Late night chats.  Some tears, much laughter.  Talk of doing this again.  Sad goodbyes.

My ladies.  My friends.  Waiting Well.

  3. I'm not sure you quite captured the depth of the sleep deprivation... or the wine... oh, the wine. Six bottles arrived, only two left (half full).

  7. The photos turned out great! I'm still a little tired today. Guess I'm too old to hang out that late at night, but I still wouldn't trade it!

  10. Sounds like a wonderful and prayerful weekend. The chapel looks amazing. I hope you will do this again (but maybe a little further south).
