After arriving in Portland, Oregon at midnight last night, Dave and I headed out early this morning to a breakfast appointment. But not before I noted this familiar sight: the I-5 bridge.
My junior high and high school years were spent in Vancouver, Washington, just across that bridge.
During those years this bridge across the Columbia River was the only link between Vancouver and Portland. I can't tell you how many times I've been across it in my lifetime! There was something oddly comforting about seeing it this morning in the dawn's early light.
After a delightful breakfast over in Vancouver with the pastor and a few others from my home church there (bummer that I forgot to take a picture!) I sent a quick text to say hi to my friend, Michelle, who I met at that church thirty six years ago.
She texted back, not from Portland but rather from the Denver airport!
And told me that her new radio program was on KPDQ in Portland at 2:30 today!!
Dave and I happened to be in the car right at that time, so got to tune in and listen to "The Dad Whisperer" as we drove! Want to tune in as well? You can find her HERE!
How very cool to speed down I-5 and listen to my long time best friend talk to dads about how to be the heroes their daughters and sons need!
I'm so proud of her, and hope this show goes nationwide. It's such an important topic, and she has amazingly helpful and practical things to say to dads, to help them be successful at that most important job.
It's a good day to be in Oregon!
