Guess what ladies? Three weeks from today, I'm going to be sitting with James in that visitation room just like so many of you are able to do every week or once or twice a month. Excited doesn't even begin to communicate how jubilant I am at the thought! It's like getting your driver's license, going to the prom, your most special birthday, or Christmas, visiting another state or country, achieveing a dream that meant everything to you, all rolled into one. I'm going to see his smile, and hold his hand, and cry ALOT! I want you all to think of me, of us, and be thankful if you can see your loved one on a semi-regular basis. I'm leaving ME on June 25th and will get to TN on the 27th. I can't see James because of the visitation times till the 28th. But, they're giving me all three days because I'm only able to visit once a year. If I'm heading through your state, and I probably am if you're anywhere between ME and TN, think of me, and say a little prayer for travelling mercies. I know I will be happy and sad when I return and will have much to tell all of you about my journey and visit. I love all of you very much! Lorie Ann
