November 28, 2013 - Happy Thanksgiving

Today started out with a wonderfully bright day and a nice feeling in the air. I got up and wanted to head over to the gym this morning, then found out that the gym in the housing complex was closed. I hurried on back to the house, though I didn't run, and went back up to the room. It was still about 07:30 and the streets were very quiet so I let Linda know that I was planning on going for a bike ride. I gave her a little kiss on the cheek and went out the door. I rode just over 10 miles and was back to the house at just a little after 08:30. When I went back up to the room and woke up Linda she jumped and I guess she thought it was later.

We both took our shower and then I headed down to see if Jason wanted some breakfast, and he was interested. We were headed to the Hamer's for Thanksgiving, and we wanted to be there by 12:30, at the latest, so it was important that he get his shower in early. On top of that the girls were going to arrive at the house at about 10:30, so he needed to get moving soon. Well, as it turned out, Jason was watching Myth Busters, and they had a particularly interesting one with a rocket-car, and he wanted to finish it. As soon as it was over he was headed to the shower, and the girls showed up just a few minutes later.

Linda was busy in the kitchen, while all this was going on, fixing a really nice fruit salad that we were taking. As it turned out, we were all done getting ready and dressed and in the car by about 11:30. That turned out to be the right time because we got to the Hamers just a few minutes after noon. We had called and told them that we might be later, yet we arrived before anyone else. Turned out that we weren't the only ones running a little late today. Within a few minutes of us getting there, everyone had shown up and that was the beginning of a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner.

It was really nice being able to sit around and just relax and talk with all the different people, some of them we knew and others were new friends. The girls were having a great time and even Gracie enjoyed playing in their backyard (it was good to see her running all over). After dinner we all had a nice dessert and then we needed to get back home. The end of the evening was the girls sitting with Grandma and Grandpa, watching Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Tomorrow is going to be another exciting day and I hope I am able to get another post out, when it is done. Thank you all, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving!
    Psalms 46:1-5 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.
