Thanksgiving Today

Today is Thanksgiving and I thought I would tell you a few things that I am thankful for. I have been extremely blessed in my life and have a wonderful wife and family. I am truly thankful for them and for all the support they give me.

I am also thankful that I have been given an extension on my life so that I can be with my family and watch my kids as they grow and mature.

I am thankful for the ability I have to love, to feel, to to simply be alive. My wife and I have been married for 20 years now and I am thankful that she has loved me unconditionally all these years and continues to amaze me as to how giving she is. She is the best!!

I am thankful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and for the understanding that I have of the truths that he taught. There are way to many things that I could list here but just know this, that I am thankful for so many things this year. I have been tested almost beyond what I could take and have learned so much through it all. I truly am thankful just to be alive. That is something I never thought I would say.

feel free to reply and say what you are thankful for. I think it does the spirit good to know what we are thankful for.

Today's Radio News

So today while I was driving to work I was listening to the radio which is what I usually do. And yes, because I am getting older, I listen to the news when I drive in the mornings. It seems all that they report on is Bad news.

Someone robbed a Bank, Someone Got Stabbed, The Economy is going terrible, our retirement investments are shrinking by the minute, and on and on.

It makes me sick to hear so much Negative News. I wish there was a station out there that just talked about the positive things in life.

Something like this:

Hello everyone, Today is going to be a great day, we are going to be able to see the sun come up and shine on us and warm us up today, we are also looking forward to having some callers call in and tell us where they are and how great their day is going.

Right now, looking at the roads it looks like most of them are traffic free and moving smoothly. Yes, there are a few that are backed up but hey, most of them are moving along greatly.

Today, we also need to report that there were 5 new babies born in our City yesterday and we would like to welcome them into this wonderful world. Lets all work together to make this a better place for those 5 kids as well as everyone else.

Don’t forget to hug someone today and smile at everyone. Remember, you only get 1 today. After that, today will be a tomorrow and you cant re-live it. Just make it better every day.

Now that is something I could listen to Every Day.

Bungee Cords

When we moved, we had a lot of help and someone brought a clear plastic container of Bungee Cords and they were left at our house after the move, does anyone remember who brought those or whose they might be so I can return them to their owner?

The Picture that I Promised

Okay, finally here is the picture that I promised I would take of our new house. It is about dusk so the lighting wasn't that great but it is okay. You can see the new Cement that we had poured on the right side. That is for our Camper. I sure hope it fits.
We measured two or three times and every time it looked good but I am still nervous. We will see the end of the month when we bring it back home.

Thanks for stopping by

Weekend Entertainment

This weekend we were invited to go to the movies with some of my family and the movie we saw was called "Fire Proof" it was a very touching movie and had a lot of spiritual lessons in it.

We also decided that we needed shelves in the garage and built some and then cleaned up the mess that we had from the move. wow, it is sure good to get that whipped into shape.

Today is now Sunday and we went to my nephews home coming. He went on a mission to North Carolina and it was great to listen to his talk and hear all about his mission.

We have not really had that much else going on around our home and I am still waiting to hear more from my Doctor so at this point that is all I have to report.

SetBack to Report on My Health

Today we went to the Doctor's and met with the Doctor that reads the CT scan and he had a little different take on what he saw. He says that the Tumors in my liver are growing and have now increased enough to make him want to treat them. Not the news we wanted to hear, but we are going to fight this and get through it.

His suggestion is to meet with several other Doctor's and view the old scans with the new one and compare and make sure that he is seeing them correctly. At that point, they will set up an appointment with me to give me Radiation in small glass balls that they will feed directly into my blood stream and have then go directly to my liver. He said this is a very effective way of treating the Liver and thinks this is all that I will need. It will be two treatments, and will take a couple of months to set up and do.
I will keep you updated as I hear more.

We Moved and it went Great !

Well everyone, the move to the new house came and went without a hitch. we managed to pack up the moving truck and several other trucks and get it all over to the new house in about two hours. 8:00am to 10:00am then the hard work came of unpacking everything.

I cant say thank you enough to all those that came and helped. I think we had close to 40 people there and I don't know how we would have done it without all of them.

I still need to take a picture of the new home and post it on here and promise to do that real soon. (as soon as we find the Camera)

My health has been great. I feel better every day and my strength is coming back more and more as time goes by. I was even able to help with the move.

Thanks again to all who helped.
