Driving Leila Home From Camp
Friday I did about 8 hours of driving – Leila was in Lions Camp Tatiyee in Lakeside, AZ.
She’s been going for the last umpteem years – I don’t remember the year she started – and just loves going.
What a contrast up there in the mountains from the current 114 degrees F here in Phoenix, the Valley of the Sun.
All the way up and most of the way home I listened to Tom “Big Al” Schreiter’s Live From London training. It doesn’t matter how many times I listen, I laugh and learn. Not only does he teach you the skills, but the psychology behind why they work.
He was here in Phoenix training a few months ago. When he comes to your area do you attend? I recommend you don’t miss him. You can check his schedule at www.fortunenow.com.
Anyway, Tom kept the driving time short and kept me awake. As I climbed into the mountains I was able to eventually turn off the air conditioning. It’s beautiful and clean up there. I can still see so much of the damage caused by the Rodeo-Chediski Fire that burned in the area in June/July 2002.
Leila didn’t get to go to camp that summer – the fire got close to the camp and, in fact, they pulled out the multiply handicapped campers there that week. Then they closed the camp for safety. I remember listening to the messasge later on the camp answering machine that parents could go up to camp in late July to collect the campers belongings. Wow!
We’re so grateful the camp was spared.
Now camp has had some major renovations by the Lions Club so it can be rented out the rest of the year with the idea of creating some income to help support the free sessions for the campers. It shouldn’t surprise anyone that donations are down. But the need to attend is not down similarly.
Anyway, we made it home safely just in time to attend our Friday night services before returning to our respective homes. It was a long day. I’ll be doing it again next year, and, as always, will enjoy the beautiful scenery and temporary respite in the cool mountain air.
