Blue Ridge Saga

When I was in the concert band in high school, we used to play a beautiful song called "Blue Ridge Saga". I never completely understood that song until now. The song is about the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Well, I drove up to the mountains a couple weeks ago and spent time driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was the first time I had been there, and let me tell you, it is absolutely beautiful. James Swearingin must have written that song about the mountains in Autumn, because with all the leaves changing, it was a spectacular site! I took lots of pictures, but they really don't do it justice. The Blue Ridge Parkway runs from Western North Carolina up into Virginia. I just drove about 30 miles of it--but it was absolutely gorgeous. Really breathtaking.

Nicole! In case you hadn't had a chance to check my blog lately, I wanted to tell you the good news!!!! The results from my dad's follow-up CAT scan show NO sign of cancer. And his is the kind of cancer that instead of just going into remission, is gone FOR GOOD if gone. Wow!!! Thank you so much for praying. Hope you're doing well. Miss ya, girl! :)
