May 4 – Astorga to Rabanal del Camino and Iron Cross

Did a bit more than 22 km today. That’s about 13, 14 miles. It was pretty easy terrain, gentle slopes and cooler weather. My leg held out OK and by the end I could not feel any pain at all. Thank you all for your prayers and healings. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Left stones I carried for Lisbeth, Ruth, and Vanessa Ch., on marker along the way. Carried the stones I brought from Colombia and Miami, and a stone for Fred, plus the ones given to me by Julian, Alexandra, Dorothy, and Mikael, to the top of the Iron Cross. Emotional.

Went to Mass today. Its Mother’s Day in Spain, so had thoughts of love for my mother and all the women and men I know who are so nurturing and loving. There are two nuns, a priest and a retired bishop (all fron Canada) in our van group. It’s very nice.

Tomorrow is the climb to O’ Cebreiro. Pray for me!
