Catching Up!
I'm a day late, but I hope I can be forgiven.
I decided this was a good subject for my first post
after a longer-than-I-planned-for blogging break!

Holly is my daughter-in-law. I love her dearly! She is a creative, talented, intelligent, hard-working, generous, and, godly woman. I believe that God chose her to be my son's wife. Their two sons, Joshua and Spoony, are 10 and 6. They are an active and precious family.

Holly's birthday is the first one of the year for our family. For the adults she is the youngest; Lee is the oldest. Our birthdays march through the year from hers in January to Lee's in July in order of age. I won't tell the ages, but just know that none of us will get younger this year! :-)

Lee and I are so glad Holly is a part of our family. Happy Birthday, Girl!


Lee is doing somewhat better now than he was a couple of weeks ago. This week he had a couple of medical procedures here at home. His nurse is one of our favorite people! She comes twice a week and takes such good care of him. This week she saved him a trip to the hospital by being able to take care of a procedure at home She and another nurse worked together to save him a trip that he did not want to make. He is recovering from all that quite well. Energy is still a concern and he is having some trouble with his voice.

However, today he was able to have a phone conversation with a friend in Texas who is also a part of the ministry that Lee writes for--Christ to the World. Lee has been able to do a little work this week on some scripts for that broadcast ministry.

The highlight of his week was probably a

Monday visit from two good friends--
Richard and Aria. they had a good visit reliving past adventures and experiences. As you can see, Lee gave Aria a Tennessee Titans cap. Aria brought Lee a book of maps of Israel.

Aria is from Israel. He served as a guide and consultant on a trip we were on in Israel in 2000 and again on a trip to Greece in 2002. We enjoy visiting with him when he is in our country on business. What a treat to have a good visit with him!

Richard is a good friend and former business colleague. In fact, he was Lee's "boss" for several years. He has been a true friend during Lee's illness. He sat with me for hours the day Lee was admitted to the hospital almost three years ago. Since then he has been faithful about visiting. He comes to our home on a regular basis and often brings other friends with him. We treasure his friendship!

So! Ok!
I'm back from my little blogging vacation.
I'll be seeing you around Bloggityville.
I have a lot of catching up to do!

Happy birthday to Holly. She sounds (and looks) like a beautiful woman. It appears that Lee enjoyed his visitors and am glad he avoided a trip to the hospital.

Happy, happy birthday to Holly!! Isn't it a blessing to have a wonderful DIL?!! We love our DIL too, she is such an important part of our family.

So glad Lee is feeling a bit better!!!! The nurses that come to the home are such a huge help. So glad they saved Lee a couple trips to the hospital.

Another blessing is having good friends that stick by us through thick and thin. It sure looks like you guys have some good ones!

Take care and I'm glad you're back blogging!! xoxo
