I had a phone call from Carrie, my daughter who lives in Guadalajara, MX. The good news is, Carrie and a couple of her good friends are going to head up this way on Monday! She wants to see her brand new grand baby SO bad! and I get to benefit from her visit to see him!
Nancy loves it when Carrie comes, because she always comes by each and every day with some kind of a little treat for her! Nancy likes peach tea from Sonic, so everybody tries to get this for her one time or another. When my son in-law Aaron is here(he is Carrie's husband), he goes to Sonic and get her a hamburger and fries and a tea! and she loves it!! He always tries to get her this, before she asks for it and it's always so much fun to see which one will win!
While Carrie travels here, Aaron and John will leave on the 4th to fly to Ecuador on a Missions trip.
I was able to fly down to Ecuador in 1987 when John was born. He turned 20 in May and Grams can't believe it has been 20 years since I was down there!! They lived there for a few years before moving to Guadalajara. Quito is really a beautiful city and I did see some of it. But my job was to take care of baby John and that is what I did! He got a rocky start so I sat up each night and rocked him and took care of him!! (no pun intended) Carrie would stick a movie in the VCR and I have always said I have never watched so many movies in my Life!!!!! Oh My!! I was totally in love with John but I was sure tired of movies!!
Okay, I digress! Back to Carrie... If my friend Jackie is reading this she will LOL for sure! When I try to tell a story they say I go around Jacob's barn to tell anything!! It just that I don't want to leave anything out that you might need to know!!
Please if you remember pray for a safe journey for both Carrie and Aaron this coming week. I would appreciate it a lot.
