Nan's party is a great blessing

Dear Friends and Family,

This has been a wonderful day for Nan. We send a huge thankyou to Pam Whitted who created the day and worked very hard on all levels to make sure everything was right. Also thank you to Barbara Lammerding who worked very hard to make sure everything was in order. A special thanks to Jo who helped so much and was a great help all day. Jason thanks for helping so much.

They laid out a beautiful table of food with cheese and crackers, vege meat balls, special punch, fruit and veges, dips and chips, wonderful cake which Barbie made. About 25 to 30 people were able to come by for at least part of the afternoon and share time with Nan. She received some very nice cards and some thoughtful gifts. Nighties, hand warming mittens which she has on right now for her aching hands, tables to help her work which she is in her chair, new foot lotion, eye lotion, face lotion, wonderful green olives, exciting room freshener aroma device, a wonderful picture of Steve and Keanna and Nikki framed. It was so good to enjoy seeing people meet other people that they have only heard about before.

Very soon we will be going to bed. You, dear family and friends have given us a very special day to remember. Especially precious to us was having Jason and Jo, Nikki and Keanna here to be with us. So we go to bed happy. A lot of photos were taken today but I'm writing on the laptop and its harder to figure out how to add photos here.

Tomorrow at 9:30 we are at Sutter Delta to have Nan's picc line worked on, either replaced or repaired. Please pray for Nan this evening, issues we face are high creatines, possible infection someplace, continual leaking etc.

We appreciate so many of you taking your afternoon and sharing it with us.

love

tim and nan

    So sorry that we were not able to make the party, but we were with you in spirit. We are so glad that everything turned out great and that Nan was able to enjoy everyone.

    We are praying that all goes well tomorrow.

    Hi Erin and Tim
    WE left for Palm Springs on Friday. The weather here is kind of cool but better than home. Yesterday we went to the follies it sure was a great show and we really enjoyed it. Today we are at the Marriott and I'm able to get to a computer. I'm so glad that you had so many of your friends able to come and visit, I'm only sorry that I missed it. We will be back in Brentwood on Thursday I will try and get to come and see you on Friday if you are around.

    Talk to you soon and I hope your week goes well
    Love you
    Mary

    Hi Tim & Nan, It was very nice to be able to be at Nan's happy birthday party. We enjoyed meeting some of the people who write on the blog. I'm disappointed Wes was not there as I always enjoy his blogs and I wanted to meet him. And Art has always been so helpful to you, Tim. We missed him, too, but was warmed by his firewood. Thanks to Pam for the many miracles she performed for the party. It was nice to get to know Jo just a little more and see Jason along with Nikki and Keanna. We made it home in good time and it felt nice to plop into bed. The Lord is sooo good to let Nan have another birthday and we are looking for many more. Love to you both. Barbie

    Tim,

    Happy Nan's birthday! What a blow out. I saw the pictures on Steve Ahn's Website. Either everyone is better looking than I remember or Steve has one heck of a filter on his camera. Thanks to all who made such great photo opportunity.

    I hear your comments about looking forward to birthdays and it struck me funny how many people are trying to fiend them off rather than charishing each one. I have come to treasure mine more in recent times. Thank you for your help by giving me a better perspective on life in general. It is a real blessing!

    Get some rest the prayer warriors are on the job! Creatines beware.

    Wes
