While at work today in the museum I was visiting with a woman who had a fairly strong accent, which led me to the question "where are you from?" Answer "Canada, I'm Canadian". I smiled and said "where were you from before that?" Answer "Scotland". I laughed and said "You sound like several members of my family, so I knew you weren't originally from Canada". I then said "My family is from Ayr and she laughs and says "along the coast, it's where we vacationed when I was a girl...I know it well!" At that moment her husband entered the room and she said "I married a Canadian" and smiled. We spoke of Scotland for a few more minutes and I was again reminded how small the world really is.
Yes, the insurance company did another about face and the Hyperbaric treatments began again 5 days later. The GOOD NEWS.....instead of needing 40 treatments, Bill has been released in 10! PTL (Praise The Lord)! So instead of driving to Yorktown and having to leave him there on Weds, so I can get back to work, he will be able to come with me, THUS saving me from that "fate worse than death".
We'll be back next week to spend Thanksgiving with these excellent friends who have put up with us for these last 3 weeks. THANKS Tom and Linda!
Work has been VERY slow, not a bad thing. It has allowed me to work on Christmas presents. This years focus is on "memories", which seems to me, to be the best gift of all!
Speaking of Christmas, the coming season signals an end to our time here at Cape Hatteras.
As for being home, we will leave Waccamaw on December 15th and travel to Knoxville to spend the night with my cousin Betty :-) Before heading to Lake Zurich on the 16th. We are so excited to be back in the groove of traveling with the Sullivan's (and any other GRANDS we can talk into going)
As we fill these last few weeks with the mundane tasks of the everyday...
We begin this busy season wishing you quiet moments, time with loved ones and the PEACE of Jesus Christ!
Thanks for reading! Jan & Bill
