I left all the other children in Michigan with Abe. This was my first time to travel with only one child, and it was quite special to give so much one on one time with my little sweetheart. (I would like to do that with each of the children.)
The following are the miracles and blessings that touched my heart greatly. There was a reoccurring theme with each of these marvelous experiences throughout my travels...
BELIEVE IN HUMANITY!!On my trip, so many people rushed to carry my bags, kindly opened the way for me to enter through large crowds, and selflessly gave me their seats. Multiple people served so quickly proving that it was in their immediate nature to serve. Believing in the goodness of humanity of strangers did wonders for my soul. I have looked at everyone with more of a positive heart than I thought possible. People are generally really good!!
Reuniting With My CousinI have a WONDERFUL distant cousin in Washington who happens to live close to where I was speaking. We have only met once, and that was 8 years ago. My family didn't even know she existed until then. We had the beautiful opportunity to spend Friday afternoon together walking on trails and finding sand dollars and shells at the beach. What a blessing to unite with family! I learned so much from her. She took a day off work, made us lunch, and drove us for hours with her baby around the vicinity of Seattle. It didn't matter that our relationship as cousins was a distant one... we are cousins, and she was willing to sacrifice greatly to build that relationship. I love her kind heart.
Some of God's Greatest BeautiesI also took some time to walk in the woods alone with Jayden. I prayed out loud thanking God for HIS beauties. I couldn't believe how full my heart felt as I quietly admired the beauty of nature. I felt grateful that other inspired humans made valiant efforts to preserve this breathtaking piece of land.

My Final SurpriseOnly a couple of hours before I would board my airplane, my friend took me to the most beautiful waterfall I could have imagined. We drove around a corner, parked our car, walked up a small path, and there it was. Mist rose all the way to the top lightly wetting our skin. There were only about 5-10 people there, and I was reminded of the beauties that God has in store for us.
What a miraculous weekend in beautiful Seattle. We are spiritual beings, and there are spiritual experiences around almost every corner of life. God has HIS hand in the lives of HIS children from all walks of life. HE is showing us HIS influence through them and through HIS Earthly creations. IT'S A BEAUTIFUL LIFE.
