Tired but accomplished

Dear Friends and Family,

Thank you Irene! When Barb and Gerry came in the door they had the most beautiful red roses and a huge ballon for Nan, Barb prepared the roses in a vase and they grace the wet bar where we can see them all the time. Thanks for your kindness!

This has been a work day and we are all tired. We have tackled many projects, green painting is about done now except for a bit around the fish tank, the fence between us the Rot next door is repaired after he came through the other day looking for trouble, the weeds are pulled and the cars washed thanks to Gerry and a portion of the garage is now in the trash can and one can see some of the garage floor again. Barbie has been cleaning, washing loads of laundry and doing food, it has all been very good. Gerry and I would work hard and then sip a coke on the back deck then back to work again. We have been blessed with so much help over the last 3 weeks and today was another big day of accomplishments.

Nan has had a low key day but did an amazing walk this morning, she headed out into the street and then around a mini park we have in front of our house, she rested for a minute or two half way and then finished the walk, she thought I would be impressed and I sure was. She has had watermelon today, lots of drinks and water and toast with peanut butter and even some cream of wheat, her Boston favorite. it was perfect, thanks Barbie.

I think we will all sleep very well tonight. Lots of progress made thanks to a little help, I mean a lot of help from our friends.

Nan and I want to thank you for your continual prayers in her behalf, she is certainly in need of God's peace and his healing.

With love

tim and nan and barb and gerry

    What an exciting day. Nothing like house and yard work to keep the mind busy. Wears out the body. I think this is probably one of the best weekends you have had in awhile, just living life :)
    GREAT job on your walk Nan. How committed you ar to your recovery will be what you can reep from. I am so proud of your continued work and your constant attemts to not be taken over with the illness. To not allow it to rule your life. Many prayers to you. Always in my thoughts and prayers,
    Pam :}

    Dear Nan and Tim,

    Sure could use a work crew like yours for our North Carolina home. What wonderful friends you have and what a blessing their help and comfort have to be.

    I praise our God for His ever so obvious love and presence in your lives.

    With love and prayers,

    Phyllis Lytle, NC former SOP

    Nan, Tim, and the New Crew,

    Sounds like things are buzzing around there. I guess Phyllis gets "the New Crew" in North Carolina before I get them in Hot Texas. It is so hot here that we about pass out just getting from the house to the car! (no comment on the extra weight being a factor) As the Church sign said, "And you think this is hot".

    Pam, I think of you often and glad you blog with us. You are a dear friend to Nan and Tim, & to me, too. Stay well!

    Nan, I can vision you on your walks. At least this time you don't have that green rubber hose to fight as you walk! ( We have had some good laughs over the past few years.) Looking for Dana & Johnathan on Friday, wish you felt like coming, too. I think it won't be long! Talk to you later tonight.

    Love Sharon
