By Rosalyn Neel, Regional Helper
This trip was a big adventure for me: both my first visit as a new regional helper, and the first time I have flown since 1993–way before 9/11 and all the new security rules. I was still in the midst of the worst cold I’ve ever had and sorry that I was not at the top of my game.
We were hosted so warmly by the Bruggers and I felt very at home there. I was able to do some simple personal testing with Halimah. With the ladies, we did a couple of group tests that they seemed to feel good about.
When Halimah drove us to the site of part of the Oregon Trail, it was a special experience for me–the air was very crisp and there was a lot of desert sage growing in the ruts of the trail. There was a time in my life when I was always around where sage was growing and it had been many years–I felt so alive with the scent!
Oswald and Rayma welcomed me to their home on the way and I felt very well taken care of. I really enjoyed getting to know the other two couples in Boise and wish it was not so far away–I would like to visit there more often.
What I see myself doing, wanting to do–getting in the car and taking off for a visit, which is what I have been used to all my adult life, will have to be tempered by the realities of an ageing body–but I don’t see myself giving it up yet!
