February 11, 2012

Today has been a great Saturday for all of us here. Jason was feeling pretty good, in general and on top of that Mom (Linda) is here for the weekend. She made it in late last night and when she got up this morning the girls were very excited. I have to admit, I was pretty excited too.

We had a nice breakfast, and Grandma played with the girls for most of the morning. Jose came in today (normally he is off, but the guy who was supposed to come in was not available). I think part of the reason he came in was because he missed a day last week. This afternoon Susan S. came by and we did some picture taking for the documentary that she is working on - Over Fifty and Out of Work. She also has been following Jason and his progress for almost as long as we have. It was great to see her, Sam and Joram again.

The girls got a chance to play out side, as the weather was still nice, even though it was a little cooler than yesterday. Then on top of that, Charlie, one of Jason's buddies, came over with his two girls and the four of them (all about the same ages) had several hours of great fun. Charlie and the girls were able to stay for dinner, and dinner was provided by Bob H's wife, Debbie. She cooked up this dish she calls Spaghetti casserole, that I had never tasted before. Wow, it was very tasty, and there wasn't any left when we were done. Because of all the activity today I guess I possibly stayed a little too active, and I am tired. Linda is tired too, and she is already in bed. With that, I'll say good night, and wish everyone pleasant dreams.

Thank you, for all your continued support and prayers

  1. Glad you're having such a good weekend!
    These words are always so very comforting! Praying!
    John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
