The third weekend in September is always on my schedule for a Women’s Retreat. When I have a job, being able to get away for 4 days in early Autumn is the deal-breaker.
We ladies from the church make arrangements to share the way to get there. I usually can request
whine that I shouldn’t drive because I’m terrible with maps and directions, so I can crochet peacefully in the back seat watch the scenery.
The ride is about 5 hours, depending on the traffic around Chicago. After getting off the Indiana tollway, it’s pretty much country roads through little towns with one blinking light at the corner, into just over the border of Michigan.
People ask why I like to go every year.
I could say it’s the SCENERY
fen: low land covered wholly or partially with water; boggy land; a marsh
the WORSHIP Program
but mostly, I go to be with my FRIENDS
