Okay, I’m a Montana girl, and at this moment I felt so “grown up.” I got to Chicago, rented a car, drove the toll ways and made it to Aurora–road construction, stop and go traffic, and toll booths included! I only got lost once, and that’s because Google maps led me to a residential area instead of my hotel. Thankful I had the hotel’s number and I called for directions … twice. Patty at the front desk is my new best friend.
After tossing my luggage in my room, I headed out to see Pete. Now Pete is one of my FAVORITE WWII vets. He is one of the first guys I met and he was one of the liberators of Mauthausen. A few years ago I help reunite Pete with a baby he saved during WWII (she’s now a doctor in the states!), and so we have a special bond. He showed me all his photos and told me great stories. Guideposts Magazine is interested in his reunion story, so we talked about that for hours.
Pete “just happened” to live 8 miles from where I’m doing a TV interview tomorrow. Personally, I feel that God’s hand was in it. There is no coincidences in God’s kingdom.
Speaking of interview, I need my beauty sleep. Tomorrow the TV cameras roll. Pray for me!!! I’ll mostly be talking about my teen pregnancy and what God has done.
