adventures in family, faith, and Down syndrome

Leaving on a jet plane

on September 9, 2016

Texas was never on my short list of “Places I would like to travel,” at least until about 6 months ago.  Too hot, too big, too Red, too many steak houses where they give you a prize for eating a whole cow.

But then the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network announced that the 2016 conference would be in Dallas.  And I missed the last one and sure as heck wasn’t going to do that again.  So Texas, yay!

(Hopefully they don’t check my voter registration card at the gate… Or they might not let me in!)

I’m going to spend the next 48 hours or so with 120 strangers, sort of.  Actually they are friends.  Stranger friends.  Online stranger friends.

Is the this 21st Century or what??

So I’m sitting an airport, sipping a hot coffee and eating the best muffin I have ever eaten.  I’m so excited.  And I miss my little family.  I’m amazed at the whole world that has opened up through because of a wee little choromosome.  I’m so thankful for this chance to refresh and recharge.

So very thankful.
