On Monday, October 6, the day before we were to go on our annual retreat, we were blest to go to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with our dear Sisters Dorothy and Paula. We got up at 4:30 a.m. and left at 5 a.m. for the grounds where the famous balloon launch. It was drizzling a bit at first, but then it stopped when we reached the grounds. It was a spectacular show of light and color as the dawn began to rise.
