This afternoon I heard about the devastating fire at Notre-Dame de Paris.
My mind wandered to a trip that I made decades ago to France. I only spent a very short time in Paris, but could see the cathedral from the street my hotel was on.
However, I did find some postcards that I had bought. At that time I bought postcards almost everywhere that I traveled.
I was given a very quick tour of central Paris while I was there, but did not have time to go inside the cathedral. My main destination had been further south in Lyon, and I was only flying in and out of Paris.
I still remember the tiny little car that we were in. It was easy to park as it did not take much space, but not the easiest to see out of.
Someday I need to go back to Paris again. It has been way too long since my last trip there.
I do have a friend in my prayers tonight as she and her husband are vacationing in Paris. I wonder if they saw the fire.
My mind is really wandering, so I hope my post is at least coherent 🙂
Hopefully the cathedral is not damaged so bad that it can’t be rebuilt. It is definitely a landmark in Paris.
