Road Trip!

I drove my two oldest kids up to Garrison Montana yesterday.  Garrison is directly North of me from Orem/Provo.  They are spending a few weeks in Eastern Montana with my parents.  My favorite aunt and uncle live in Garrison which is a convenient half way point to Lindsay, where my parents live.  I dropped my boys off with my aunt and uncle yesterday and my sister picked them up later that day and is currently driving them back to Lindsay.

I left my house at 5:08 yesterday morning and pulled back into my driveway at 10:25 last night; a 17.5 hour round-trip road trip.  My butt is flat and my brain is mush.

BUT...

It was also one of the awesomest road-trips I've ever taken!

Annette from Standing in Holier Places met me in Blackfoot Idaho and we spent a good 8-9 hours together as she drove with me to Garrison.  We spent our time together laughing, screaming, almost running out of gas (twice), telling jokes and stories and having a genuinely awesome time.

So happy to know her!  She is amazing!

  3. Hi Sidreis. First of all, your name is BEAUTIFUL! I've never heard it, but I really really like it. I'm a friend of Annette's. She is so dear to me, so I came over here to meet her friend. I watched your video on the side, and I cried. If I ever meet you, I am going to give you a big hug. What you and Annette are doing here is AMAZING. Truly. It takes so much courage and vulnerability to talk about your journey. And I think you both have the most BEAUTIFUL journey's. And even though I've never met you, I love you. I really feel love for you. And I admire you. And I support you in every way. Count me in to your army here on earth. I love you, Sidreis.

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
