Finally Home


The day my brother, Tom, and his wife Mary, have been waiting for came today at Noon.
They officially pulled into the driveway at the "Welcome Home" sign for the last time in the BIG truck. Retirement begins after living on the "highway" for the last 10/7 years.

Personally, I don't think I would have been able to survive that way for that long! Takes a special breed of person I believe. I envy all the states they have been in, and the places they have seen, and am thankful that Mary loves photography so I get to "visit" some of those places via pictures. It is so nice to have them "home", and to have "neighbors". And of course Patch and Salli are happy that now they have 2 more playmates.

We look forward to a great Christmas dinner together and lots of good times in the coming years. Of course there will be lots of work coming when they begin to get their earth contact container home under way; and the barn put up, and fences mended, and animals purchased, etc. And of course a garden and canning to do. I can hardly wait. It is somewhat comforting to know that this is where we will spend the rest of our days, and that life will be what we make it with help from the Lord. Sometimes I wonder what else He has in store for us, but I guess I'll find out won't I? I'll just try to be patient and pay attention!

That's all I know for now. Take care and God Bless.

It sounds like you all are settling in, and I like the sound of it. OH! to be close to siblings. I am in Ark, the rest are in Tenn from 6 to 10 hours away. I don't even live close to my children 2 @ 30 miles away in LR, one in Iowa and one in Oklahoma. Dad (hubs) and I feel awfully alone sometimes even though we are constantly in touch with everyone.

Blessings @ Christmas
