On their next to last day in town I took my sister and niece to one of my favorite places. We drove the three hours north to Oklahoma City and visited the National Memorial. This place always makes me cry. The girls thoroughly enjoyed it. We had lunch first at Toby Keith’s restaurant, cleverly called I Love This Bar and Grill.
But just like yesterday, I had woken up too late for daily mass. Fortunately, God was watching out for me. By the end of our time in the museum, around 5:30 in the afternoon, I pulled out my phone, opened the Mass Times app and found a nearby church. The parish, named in honor of St. Therese, the Little Flower, was staffed by the Order of Discalced Carmelites. What a joy not only to get to mass but to discover such a gem of architecture!
Later in the day, we stopped at the Chickasaw Nation casino for a bit. Maureen and I both had forgotten to get cash but Campbell had two twenties on her. Luckily for her, it was my lucky night. I won $40 back for her and we headed home after our very full day.
