It's A Sign

It has been a week since I slept in my own bed.  I am fortunate enough to be traveling around Texas in springtime.  It's beautiful here folks.

I was in San Antonio on Tuesday as tornadoes tore across North Texas.  I have talked with a few neighbors and know that our home is still there, safe and sound. 

I am curious to see my garden.  Like a young child, gardens change daily and each day you are not there you are missing something.

Life is full of trade offs.  I have had a chance to visit with friends and do a little sightseeing.  All those bluebonnet pictures showing up online are true - Texas wildflowers are at their peak this time of year.  Even Interstates, my least favorite way to travel, have color. 

This morning I head home up US Highway 281 through the Texas Hill County.  When I drive this stretch of highway I take it as a sign that we are all loved, and I always feel like the road between San Antonio and Stephenville was created just for me to enjoy.

This morning I woke up 'under' this sign -

I can hardly wait to see where the day will take me.

I have read about the Texas Hill Country and how beautiful it is. It would be amazing to see the grand sweeps of bluebonnets in all their glory! Glad you have had a peaceful time, and that your home is safe, too!

I love traveling the Texas highways when the bluebonnets are in bloom. I hope your garden has some beautiful things to show you now that you're back home. Glad to hear you and your home are safe after the storms.

I have not traveled in Texas, maybe I will some time. I have landed in Dallas and Houston when flying to see my son but that is it. I would love to plan a trip and see your part of our beautiful country.

I am so glad to know that you are safe and sound from those nasty storms.

I understand how exciting it is to be traveling around and enjoying the spring blossoms, I too snapped a few pictures and posted them on my blog. I cannot get over the vibrance of the bluebonnets!

Enjoy your day! :)
