On a very happy Saturday in July, my "niece" came to visit me in my home. Here you can see what a beautiful young woman Maleah Dyer has become. She's already out of college...it seems like yesterday when my wife Phyllis and I had those fun Sundays playing with Maleah and her sister Justine in our home in Great Bend, Kansas. I was so happy that Maleah took time to visit with me...she must've been at my house for several hours. We got a lot of "catching up" done. That was the highlight of my year so far!
Today my daughter Becky took me to the doctor who told me I'm doing real good. He's the doctor who did the arterial bypass in my leg last February. I told Becky when I moved to Canon City in 1998 that I thought I was good for at least 2 more decades. After my visit with Dr. Bowman today, I think I'm still good for another decade. On Saturday I'll be celebrating my 88th birthday (on 08/08!)..the first year in my next Decade!
I'm so grateful for all the prayers my friends and family members said on my behalf through this last year of my injuries and illnesses. My improved health just goes to show that God isn't done with me yet!
