We wanted to get with family for sure, but because I work retail a road trip of any distance was out of the question. Our son lives in Atlanta, so Chattanooga is halfway for both of us.
After a little research, it appeared that Cracker Barrel would be our dining choice. I want to give props to them for NOT taking advantage of people like us that want to get with family out of town for a predictable meal. They provided a $9.99 meal with turkey and ham, great sides, a beverage and pumpkin pie! The service was very fast and our server was super friendly.
The best part was a few hours with Aaron to catch up on his life. What an incredible blessing to hang out with your adult son and hear what's happening with him. To also let him hear what's going on in our lives, and how the Lord is working.
After dinner, we went up Lookout Mountain to Point Park, one of his favorite places. The weather was cool, but very tolerable because of the sunshine. We got a little hiking in and even scaled this rock for a group shot.
Plans are underway for Christmas Week in Ohio. Everyone will be there for an entire week! We are all excited and looking forward to that in just 4 short weeks.
I hope you had a blessed day. We reflected on how much we enjoyed the view from "above." How much smaller everything appears, even our problems. That will be our perspective when we get to Heaven with Our Lord! All the "stuff" that was huge here, will seem insignificant in His presence.
