Good morning to all! I can hardly believe how much has happened the past couple weeks. It seems so short for all that's unfolded for us. Lisa and CJ and I had a great post-Lisa b-day stretch right into Thanksgiving. That included saying good-bye to the Steckman's who sadly are moving back to Virginia, but we've been so blessed by their friendship and time in BV. We will miss them.
Thanksgiving was awesome! We went to warm(er) Denver and enjoyed great food and company with Mike & Crystal Delehoz and their daughter Mia Grace. Mike and Crystal are former Ranch guides and good friends with roots in Ft Worth, but recently moved to Denver. Mike volunteered for dawn patrol the day after Thanksgiving driving me to the airport at 4:30am. I caught a flight to Grand Rapids, MI to officiate the wedding of John Balmat and Christina Jagatic. It was my first wedding to officiate and it was awesome.
Honestly, I can think of no more honoring of a time than to be asked to officiate the wedding of a good friend. John and Christina, if you read this, please know how HONORED I felt to have this role in your wedding and THANK YOU for asking me to serve in that way. John & Christina had a beautiful wedding.
I also got some great time with the Michigan WR crew, which honestly I don't see enough of their happy and fun faces!
Returning to BV was good, always great to hug and kiss Lisa and Campbell Jane. The temps are dropping so winter is grabbing hold of us. No big snow dumps yet, but it's coming. Bought a new snow shovel...just need my shoulder to feel better...thankfully I don't need surgery. Just physical therapy for an enflamed tendon in my rotator cuff.
Lotsa love to you all! Merry Christmas and have the best day in the Lord today!
