Happy Thanksgiving!

Leo and I waited for the front to blow through before leaving Houston last night, so we got home (to Port Lavaca) a little after 1am. I woke up this morning, walked into the living room, and once again was awed by the beautiful sight out my back windows. When I stay in Houston too long without a trip home, I forget just how beautiful "home" is. I have GOT to change my plans a bit and make this trip more often!

Today's plans don't include much more that making the requisite "Happy Thanksgiving" phone calls to all the family members, visiting with Jess and Grace, and enjoying one day of relaxation. I will also take a bit of time to reflect on how things are going and be thankful for what God has given us. I know I complain a lot about my crazy life, but the truth is, I always seem to find the next job, Leo and I are both healthy, the kids and grandkids all seem to be doing well, and I am doing all kinds of new and wonderful things. Today I am so very thankful that I have all the things in life that make me happy, and I wish the same for you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Should post it at the "week you wanted to quit" when this actually happened. but here it is......

    It was the first time in Many Many Years that I actually prayed to something great "out there" to "please help Bea."
    That is surprising, considering that for the last half century I thought I was an atheist.


    Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

    Deut. 31:6
