The Hubers are here!

I am so thrilled beyond imagination at the thought of seeing our very closest family friends today. The Hubers moved to Washington some time ago and we have missed them something awful since then. Today they are back in town for a few days so I get to see my very good friend Ray and his family. Especially my Godson James. Man how I miss that boy.

I can’t wait to see them today. I am so looking forward to it. Hopefully I will be able to take lots of pictures. If not, at least I know I will be able to get to some serious eating with my friends. Followed up of course by some ice cream. Because anyone who knows anything about Ray Huber knows dinner isn’t done until the ice cream is finished.

Can’t wait to see you Ray, Cee Cee and kids. I am really more excited that words on a screen can convey.

Thank God for friends

You know, I have been extremely blessed lately. My wife, as I have mentioned in the last few weeks, has been very sick lately. It is going on almost five weeks that she has been sick and some of our family and friends have really stepped up the plate to help us out.

I don’t want to go into detail so I will spare you all that. But I do want to public thank a few families for their help and assistance. Specifically, these families have brought us meals to spare me some of the stress of coming home and preparing dinners for my family.

  • The Rose Family
  • The Millet Family
  • The Maltsby Family
  • The Fagetti Family

I truly appreciate the help these families have offered. I am truly blessed and I am truly touched by your outreach. Thank you.

Friends make life better. Whether you know it or not, you being someone’s friend means that their life has been touched in some way. And if it hasn’t, try to make it a point to see that it does.

Case in point: we have some friends in San Carlos that called us up yesterday and asked if they could take our three older daughters for a sleepover. They had no idea that my wife is still sick (getting better, finally, praise God, but still sick). They just wanted to spend some time with our older girls and their daghters.

That was so awesome. It gave my wife and I a chance to have some quiet time without all the hustle and bustle of a gaggle of children at bed time. We were able to relax for an evening, and I am to prepapre to go to work tomorrow resting a little easier knowing that my wife will be a little more OK since she only has two kids to deal with instead of all five.

So I have to say that I am blessed. Friends make my life better and I hope that one day I can be a friend that makes someone else’s life a little better as well.
