We've seen some spectacular sites throughout the States this year as we've traveled on our sabbatical/home assignment. But there's nothing like starting to see familiar ones that tell you "you're almost home".
As we drove from Redding, CA up towards Oregon, we passed by the magnificent Mt Shasta looming large in the distance. Another "WOW" moment!
But an even better "wow" moment? Stopping in Eugene yesterday for lunch with my family!
So so so very sweet to walk into my mom and dad's house and soak in all the comforts of home and family (not to mention mom's home cooking!).
And get a good hug from my brother, Mike, as well!
There's nothing like a good visit with the people you love, in the land you love.
