When my invitation arrives every year about this time, I start counting the days.
Then the appointed morning finally arrives and I pack my little CRV, point it north toward Lakeview, Ark., and drive eight hours until my Tom Tom tells me I’m on River Road, the last major waypoint where I see the sign telling me I’ve reached my destination.

For 13 years in Ruston, I taught Sunday School at the Town Oaks Nursing Home  — now here I am going to an assisted living facility for a time until I “get my groove back.”
