The prompt for Joelle’s Tales at Ranting along is to talk about the last trip we took in exactly 120 words.
There are times when you want to see the people who knew you when. So, I took a solo road trip back home to Arlington Heights, IL. It was about a 10-hour-drive and worth every mile.
My mom passed away in 2004, but her best friend Angie and her daughter, Joanne, (my very first friend) still live there. I’d always felt like part of their family and thank God it’s still that way.
The week went by way too fast. I stayed with Joanne and we did all the usual things, shopping, eating, drinking, and laughing. The hardest part was leaving and seeing Illinois grow smaller in my rearview mirror.
There’s no telling when or even if, I’ll be back.
