Yesterday we scheduled too much activity into our day's plans. We will not do that again. Margie had a doctor's appointment and after that we drove to Lynden to see Joy at Christian Health Care Center. Joy had just finished her afternoon walk and was being refreshed by the care giver and put in bed for a rest. Upon entering the room Joy began to make joyful sounds and had a big smile for us. Margie sat in a chair next to her bed and I sat on the bed beside Joy. I thought it would be better to sit at the foot of the bed, but Joy preferred I sit close to her. It was a very special time. The caregiver said that Joy would nap, and sure enough she started to doze off so we took that opportunity to leave. We were mighty glad to be back home after having been gone for about 5 hours. Last night our grandson, Nathan, came and he is staying with us for the weekend while he works at the Vista house. Thank you for praying for us. We appreciate it so much.
