Home Again in Hannibal, MO
Apr 10, 2013
|We are basically set up in our assigned space at the Mark Twain Cave Campground.
We still have lots to do, to make it “home” again but those chores must wait until the rain ends.
We are going to meet our daughter Jennifer, for lunch at her work today.
She will call to let us know what time she gets off for a lunch break, then we’ll stop at Subway to pick up food and join her.
We had a long, tiring day yesterday and are so glad to be here for awhile. Over the past 10 days, we have traveled all but two days.
Arizona is a long way from Missouri. Especially pulling your home behind you. LOL
It will be tomorrow before we get to see those little bundles of love we call Grandkids. We are anxious for that!
Without naming names I would simply like to ask for your prayers for all who are having surgery, that all goes well, with desired results. Thank you for that!
I will probably begin leading tours of the Mark Twain Cave next week, so if any of you loyal readers get to visit this area, please stop by and take a tour. I’ll do my best to make it interesting and fun for you.
After such a cross-country journey, the truck is filthy, and needs an oil change and 70,000 mile check up.
Marilyn will be out cleaning her car as soon as the rain and storms are over.
Our time here will go by pretty fast and we have lots to do. Most important is to spend time with our Daughter, Son-in-Law, and Grandkids. We also must get to the town where I grew up to visit relatives who still live there.
Work at the Cave and taking care of normal, routine chores associated with life also take some time.
So, here we are, ready and anxious to get started with whatever obligations and joys this life may bring.
I read something today that sticks with me. I really like this, believe this, and want to share it with all of you, so here it is:
'I shall pass this way but once. Therefore, any good that I can do or any kindness that I can show, let me do it now, for I shall not pass this way again.'
Words to live by for sure!
I am now writing later in the day and we have spent lunchtime with our daughter. It sure is nice to be with her again.
We will have the Grandkids here tomorrow and the fridge was looking a bit empty, so we stopped at Walmart to pick up groceries and supplies.
We are ready for the Grandkids, except that we forgot the hot dogs.
How could we do that! Well, OK, one more stop later and we’ll be ready!
By the way, I have stuff to make Sundae’s for them. Maybe one for me too!
Life is Good!
