Mom, you would have loved Cheryl. She brought me out a bag of drinks and healthy snacks when I arrived, but made sure I washed my hands before digging in. Later in the evening she cooked me dinner while the three of us sat and talked, and I found out Rob is quite a character. He's a fixture on the UW campus in Madison playing his sax outside in the warmer months. He's really gotten into his new blood sugar meter, and measured my blood sugar (75 mg/dL, I think it was, before dinner) to show me how it works. (The prick is painless and the reading is almost instantaneous.) This morning he showed me a few other interesting hobbies of his while Cheryl packed me up a breakfast for the road. (Photos to come.)
Thank you, Cheryl and Rob!
What a neat couple.
What incredible people you’ve met on this journey.
Wouldn’t it be fun, somewhere down the line, to get them all together in the same place? It could be a sort of reunion.
In the meantime, keep living fully in these moments, right now.
