Last evening, after I had posted the journal entry, We relaxed and were just watching some TV. I can’t even tell you what we were watching, when there was a knock on the door.
We were a bit surprised to see Kit & Jerry when we opened the door. They immediately came in and, with tears in their eyes, told us of an unexpected phone call concerning a family problem. I will let you read www.kitandjerry.com to discover what is going on because I do not feel that it is my place to say anything.
I will only say that we sometimes can only love people and give them a hug, or cry with them, and offer support in the form of prayer. It seems precious little sometimes but we are limited as human beings.
This retired, full-time RV lifestyle is wonderful and, to some degree, it does insulate us from the “real world”.
Life goes on however and sometimes it has an effect on us all.
Knowing that Kit & Jerry would be leaving early this morning made it difficult to sleep last night.
We were still tired when we got out of bed at 7:00 this morning.
We drank our coffee and watched out the window, torn between leaving Kit & Jerry alone to get things ready to roll, and walking across the street to give them another hug.
Dan & Pat, Linda, Gordon & Juanita, and Marilyn & I were able to say “So Long” to them before they left.
It took eight hours for Kit & Jerry to drive from Llano Grande to Brackettville. They called to let us know that they were back and had a safe trip.
Marilyn & I took our showers and dressed for the day once Kit & Jerry were on the road.
I began preparing a kettle of my “Southwest Pork, Green Chili Stew” for our dinner. It was pretty tasty if I do say so myself.
Around a quarter to 1:00 PM, Marilyn & I drove to Mission, TX to meet Jesse & Ginger for lunch. It was Jesse’s birthday and they had gone to a movie. We met them at the restaurant.
We enjoyed a fine lunch and great conversation with each other. Marilyn & I had a card for Jesse. On the front of the card was a picture of a kid picking his nose. The printing on the front of the card said “Birthdays are like Boogers”. When you open the card, the print reads “The more you have, the harder it is to breathe”.
I have a funny picture to post for you with Jesse holding the card.
Once we drove back to the RV, we settled down, watched a DVD movie, and ate some of the stew I had prepared earlier.
Jennifer called when she got off work and we had a nice chat with her. We just love her so much!
So now we are taking it easy and thinking of friends. We do ask your prayers for Kit & Jerry and their family.
I will leave you with that humble request. We do look forward to tomorrow and whatever adventures that day may have in store…..
