I took a trip to Yakima, Washington this week to visit some dear friends and my special friend, Penny, who invited us all to join her for a special celebration at the Mat & Savannah Shaw Concert in Spokane. Penny is battling cancer and other health issues and I wanted to see her again while she is still able.
We had a wonderful week together, welcoming in the Christmas season. I love Penny and I loved being back in Yakima for this quick visit.
It moved my heart strings to drive past the Mission Home in Yakima where we spent 3 of the most wonderful years of our lives. Interestingly, the new Mission President living here now is Phil Welch, who served in my hometown Reedley Ward when I was a senior at Reedley High. We became friends then. Who would ever have imagined how our paths would cross in Yakima!
My love to Penny and all my Yakima friends.
