Grand Marais, MN, at Lake Superior, November, '12

      Dave is a special person!!  He's been a wonderful husband for the 30 years when God put us together.  And he's been a great step-dad for my daughter and son, and the grandkids love him strongly!  He works physically at our church -- doing a lot of the fixing situations -- and plays piano and/or organ at 3 other churches ... Wednesday evening, Saturday evening, and Sunday morning [possibly with up 3 of them and he's driving around and about re: the timing from 7:30, 9:00, 11:00].  And he has several piano students.  Doing what he can.  AND he and one of our main friends, Gary, have been redoing some of the stuff in our house.   Anyhow, he's wonderful.  I'm a strongly blessed lady.  Even with my brain and body issue that's a challenge, he is patient re: me.  

OH... and he just arranged for me to be on a plane March 19th [early in the morning] to Portland and will be picked up by my sisters who live about 60 miles from Portland.  Then I'll also be in Tacoma a few days later and then there for about a week. [ BTW, all my sisters are a few years younger than me!]  Then back down to the Portland area April 8th in the early evening I'll be on the plane to Omaha and, because of the way our hours change, I'll be here about midnight.  BUT he arranged this so I can see my sisters, nieces, nephews, family friends and lots of other friends.  As I've often said, I was born in Portland, was in Tacoma several times until I was 23, and visiting very frequently since then, but not living there, even when I was in California, Nebraska, and Oklahoma ... and Uganda, Costa Rica, Morocco.    I'll be so excited to be at the Pacific Ocean and Puget Sound and see Mount Rainer, and, when on the plane, coming in or going out of Portland, will definitely see Mount Hood!  And the Columbia River on both the Washington and Oregon side for many  many miles and to swing by Multnomah Falls, one of my favorites. So, we'll see how things go.  Since I can't drive, I don't know how I'll be taken around.  But I'll do what I can, when I can, where I can. 

Dave and I focus on this and do it:  
Worshiping and glorifying and praising to and for the Lord is all that counts!!

Dave is a keeper, sister! You are blessed. How exciting to think you'll be on a plane in just weeks! Happy for you that you will see your sisters again. Have fun.
