Today was another of those days where things just go the way they are supposed too, and then things got better. Yeah, it was one of those days that you wish you had more of. We got up this morning and had a quick breakfast, and then we all loaded up - Linda, Jason and I - into the van and we headed off for the dentist. I know, that doesn't sound so wonderful to most, but I haven't been to a dentist in almost three years, and we have come to know one; through a friend, and this dentist is doing the work for no charge. Anyway, I'm digressing... I went inside for my appointment and Linda and Jason went over to General Tom Lightner's place, where he and his wife, Carol, were hosting us for lunch later in the day.

At the dentist, I found out that I actually did have a cavity. Not much of one, but there it was, and it will have to be addressed. I was also told that my dental hygiene was very good and my teeth were amazingly clean considering how long it has been since seeing a dentist, even for a cleaning. That was good news, and the day even got better.

We went over to Tom's house, where Linda, the receptionist (not my wife this time) from the dentist's office, drove me. She was invited to lunch there as well. Then a short while later, Kevin and his wife Stephanie (the dentist and hygienist) also came over. Finally, Rev. Tom Straeter, the pastor at Grace Presbyterian came over. It was great getting a chance to meet all these new folks, in a nice social setting. It would have been better if the girls had been with us, but that wasn't the case. We wanted to come today, because of the unique opportunity to have all of us there at the same time.

The lunch was enjoyable, with sandwiches, salad, chips and drinks, all out on the patio. Tom and Carol have a very nice home, and it is amazingly relaxing to be there. Tom even built a couple of ramps so that Jason was able to move around the house, and go in or out to the patio. Then the final good news came, and that was that the girls were coming back to Jason's place, tonight. That is a day earlier than planned. I'm not sure who was happier, Linda or Jason.

The girls showed up and they were all excited to be here, and wanted to show Daddy all of the stuff they had with them. Jason's birthday is on the 31st, and they brought him a cake, as well as a birthday card. You could tell Stacy was very proud of it. It was a little later in the day and they needed to get dinner down, so that was taken care of, then the bath. That pretty much ends the day, and now I'm ending the blog. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers - Take care and stay positive.

  1. Know that the Lord is always with you, wrapping His loving arms around you and holding on tight! Praying right now!
    Psalms 18:2-6 The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

    Psalms 18:30-32 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
