We couldn't be happier. . . Thank Goodness!

Thanks for being patient faithful readers!  This week had some interesting moments at the park, but all of that was overshadowed by my parents visiting!

They came in on Wednesday and went to work with me on Thursday.  It was disheartening that most of my regulars that come hang out with me avoided me, but it was really good for my parents to see how work is, what Loaves & Fishes is really like, and how great the people I work with are!

On Friday I took off work and we visited San Fransisco for the day; we drove over the Golden Gate Bridge, drove down Lombard Street (the crookedest street in America!), toured Fisherman's Wharf, took a bay cruise where we sailed under the Golden Gate and around Alcatraz, and went for sundaes at Ghiradelli Square!  The next day we drove south to San Jose (yes, my mother sang "Do you know the way to San Jose?" for almost the entire ride!) and toured Winchester mystery mansion.

Today (Sunday), we went to the Cathedral and out to brunch (with my roommates!).  They are off to Napa now. . .

It was beyond amazing to have them here!  I loved having them see where I work and live, and I REALLY appreciate them taking the time to come out to CALIFORNIA! 

It has really been a blessing having them here, but now I'm back in the really busy life that is JVC!!

(By the way- I really want to explain our community and spirituality nights we have weekly in JVC, but always forget.  Being with normal people from the outside world really puts the unique experience that is JVC into perspective!)


  1. Sooooo happy that you all had a good time :)

    Can't wait to plan my trip!
