It's about a four hour road trip to visit my mom.
(Depends on how many stops we make along the way!)
Mom was interested in going for an afternoon drive to see how water is threatening the community where she has lived all of her life.
Do you see how water is running over the road?
We could no longer drive up to the house where I lived as a young girl...
It is surrounded by water...all the way out to the main road here.
The water is also threatening our family's farmstead here.
Here is the little church where hubby and I were married nearly 30 years ago.
And the Hall where family and friends danced the evening away.
All threatened by the rising waters of Devils Lake.
While much of our drive was heartbreaking, we had a nice time reminiscing about where mom had lived, taught in country schools, raised a family, worshiped, volunteered, and later retired, before moving to the assisted living facility. She is 90 and has a wealth of memories to share.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
