1/21 New Orleans

I arrived here two hours ago. Am at a lovely Hilton hotel with free wifi. Gotta love that.

Cried four times today (not boo-hooing, just wet eyes). The first time was when Kayla told me that she thinks I'm such a beautiful grandma. The second time was when I said good-bye to Jill, Kayla, and Hunter at the airport (Todd wasn't there). The third time was 20 minutes later when I realized I'd left my cell phone in Jill's car. The fourth time was when Jill came back to the airport and gave it to me. So I think I've reached my crying quota for a long time.

It was such a wonderful visit. Can't imagine what would have made it better--unless I could have fit the kids in my suitcase.

Am looking forward to tomorrow. Hope I absolutely LOVE what this company is doing in the field!

I am just glad I was still close enough to the airport to turn around, give you your phone, and you still had time to go back through security to get to your flight on time. Good luck with everything and chat with you again when you make it home.

Thanks again, sweetie. Can't sleep. I've been awake since before 4. Hope I still have good energy today.

Jer,
Lutheran Social Services is an awesome company to work for I have heard. They do such tremendous work. Hope this works out for you. Biloxi is a neat city.

Love,
Jeff

I said work(s) three times in four sentences. Works for me.

I agree, Jeff. Am very impressed with their organization.

I think Kayla needs glasses.
