Off Into the Sunset...

It's been a great birthday week already. My tour family and friends around the world have made me feel so loved and honored. I am so grateful for the amazing friends God has placed in my life. Where would I be without all of you? I don't know.
All I have wanted to do this summer is go on a boat ride. I have waited patiently and summer is almost over. Tonight, God lovingly granted my wish. I can see him up in heaven smiling as he ordained the events of this evening. Rose, Gladys, and I joined our lovely hosts aboard the ski boat in their backyard and off we rode into the sunset on Lake Michigan. With Rose cuddled in my arms and Gladys next to me in the front of the boat we cruised into the night sky giggling and feeling perfectly happy. Rose exclaimed "This is the best day ever!" And I had to agree with her. We anchored and ran through the waves on the beach for awhile, which resulted in squeals and laughter. I have never enjoyed wave jumping and running in the water SO MUCH! Tonight I am grateful to God for the little pleasures in life that He sees fit to bless me with. How much he loves his children!
