What would make two people that sold everything, bought a boat and sailed to Florida willing to come back to “”””fffrrrriiiidddggggiiiddd””” Minnesota. I hope you better understand after today’s log.
We traveled home and went to church and had the opportunity to visit with many of our dear friends back here in Mankato, Minnesota. We talked and laughed and caught up on what they have been up to since we left on “Adventure”.
How fortunate we are to have so many old and new friends in our lives. They are all so dear to us and we have been so blessed to have all of you in our lives.
This will be a 2 part blog. The first is today however I need many more photo’s to do it justice and many better photos to show our friends with better photography.On our way from Duluth we met up with our friend Dennis from the VA and he introduced us to his friend Nicole. It was wonderful seeing the smiles on both their faces
Dennis & Nicole
George was a dear friend at the church that helped us with donuts on Sunday and Meals on Wednesday that we served at the church.
Tammy with Jo
Jo not only helped us through the tough times but looked in on my parents Ginny and Duane at the memory care unit at Cottagewood. Thank you Jo for the caring person you are. We love you dearly.
Marge with Tammy
Marge helped us through many of those Wednesday night dinners.
Susan was always there to fill in when we were short of help. She also made us cool Minnesota Timberwolf aprons, and a beautiful sailing embroidery. we love it.
Marjorie was always one of the first to greet us on Sunday morning.
Paul is in charge of the Holy Grounds Program. He serves coffee and breakfast to those after the Salvation Army closes in the morning. Giving them a warm place, hot coffee and breakfast Monday through Saturday. They also get access to the internet and any help that we can give them. There are many who help him with this I just wish I could get all their pictures for the blog.
George, George Rago, and Mary serving coffee Sunday morning
George Rago has been one of those that have been so helpful on Sunday mornings getting the donuts and running for the donuts.
Jim and Bea were always in the break area when we would leave the early service. We were always so happy to see that they were there to start the morning.
It was always a joy walking out of the first service and seeing Jim & Bea’s smiling faces. What joy they brought us.
We hope our new friends have enjoyed meeting a few of our old friends and will want to meet more of them next week. We will continue with more photos and stories next week. On Friday you will be introduced to some of the family.
To all of you God Bless
& Merry Christmas
“Living The Dream”
