Fourth of July!!

Thursday, July 04, 2013

We had such a fun weekend. Dale, a friend of Greg's, drove up from Medford to visit - and brought his daughter, Sara. They are really good people. We just visited, ate, and watched movies. They were here 3 days and plan to come in September for the Pendleton Round-Up. Hoping it will be a bit cooler - it was in the 100s while they were here so we did not get out much to see the town. But, during Round-Up there will be lots to see and do. Just hope they can both get off work to come.

Greg finished his radiation in Walla Walla and will start chemo here in Pendleton next week. Just hope he does not get too sick. He is already losing some hair from the radiation. This picture was taken a couple of years ago.

I do so love my boys. And Greg is so dependable and steady and loving.

Today Greg and I went by his house - he will probably not be able to live alone again - to pick up a few things and then to our favorite store - WalMart for a few groceries. And, of course, he found a couple of movies that we do not have - IronMan 2 and the John Adams miniseries. Then we fixed hamburgers for lunch - oh, so good. And, I just got up from a 2 hour nap.

It is cooler here today - in the mid 80s right now. I have not been very faithful with my challenges, but have lost another pound. May just be the stress of all that is happening in my family right now.

Just hope you are all having a memorable 4th of July. Our country seems to be struggling so right now - but we have a God that is so much bigger than our little issues. And, we do know that He truly is in control of all that happens - even when we may not understand. We can truly trust Him - as Greg has said, "We have to trust Him!!".

    I'm glad you had a good visit Barb, it'll have done all of you the world of good.
    Isn't it lovely when boys still want to do things with their mothers even when they're men.
