Friday night, safe and sound

Brrr, it sure is cold here tonight, nice night to be in by the fire. Tonight is especially nice since Jo and Jason along with Clayton are sleeping upstairs. Nan is ready to head to bed. I too am ready to rest, started at 6 this morning, wrote an appraisal, drove to Copperopolis to do an appraisal, then set the GPS for Grass Valley and it led me right to the second property of the day which was a very nice townhome surrounded by trees and country. Then home. The photo is of a deer who was standing by the car when I came out of the townhome, he or she posed for the photo before moving off into the forest.

Nan has had a rough day, her hands have been hurting a lot lately along with nephrostomy pains and continued leaking. Just not a good day at all for her but it got better this evening when Nikki and Keanna came to visit and have dinner, then Jason and Jo arrived with Clayton and we enjoyed time together. It is so good to have everyone together for a few moments. Keanna loves to see Jason, Jo and Clayton, she plays with them and shows her stuff, she now knows how to spell her name out loud. Today she was student in charge of her class room so she told us all about that. What fun to just get to spend time with this precious family. We missed steve but he was getting ready for tomorrows trip to Tahoe and a time share they have there.

Along with the many challenges we face we have joys mixed in as well. This has been a very tough week for Nan with so much nausea no matter what meds or devices we try and nausea just wears a person down after awhile. She has suffered from the pain in her hands since the surgery and in the hospital in Boston you may remember Sharon prayed for and was given white gloves for Nan to wear. Tonight jason and jo came up with brown rice in a sock warmed in the microwave, that helped a lot to relieve the pain.

Well its bed time. Tomorrow morning we get to take Keanna to Sabbath School, yea, I love to do that. Then back home to spend some quality time with the woman I love and am so proud of.

Thanks for your prayers,


tim and nan and jason and jo and clayton

    Hi Troops!
    I trust today will be a better day for everyone.
    Today we need to be silent , hear and feel His presence. He has such a neat way of speaking to us if and when we listen. He loves us so much and we have no concept of the things He has spared us from, even with everything He is carrying us through. We must remember to tell Him thank you and that we love Him,too.
    Enjoy each other today, stay cozy, and smile. Remember that you are in every prayer and that I love you much. Hugs and hello to Jo and Jason.
    Love, Sharon
