Well, thanks to Alan’s help in getting a new computer, and Aaron’s expertise in getting it up and running…and figuring out that our router was bad (which made email very iffy for the past little while), I’m sort of back on line. You would not believe the number of breakdowns we’ve had around our house lately. Not just the router, but Jon’s computer also went down, our dishwasher’s top hose burned out. In fact, I can’t even remember what all, although I know it’s been a very long list! However, I’m going to try to turn over a new leaf and start relaying all the wonderful blessings of God instead of seeing all the frustrations. Jon and Gerlinde had a wonderful reception. I was amazed and so touched by all the love and support from our chapel family as well as the tireless efforts of two of my dear, dear friends and family. Praise God for family and loved ones! Now it’s on to the Thanksgiving holiday and we’re enjoying the company of Aaron and Dan’s families as well as…well, let’s just say we have everyone but Michael and Kathy’s families, and although Stephen had to go back to MSU for today, he’ll be back home tomorrow night. What a thrill it is to have all the kids around! In fact, I’m going to quit writing and go play some more legos with Reuben and Gideon! So, I probably won’t be back for another week. But, I want you to know that I am so thankful to the Lord for his wonderful mercies and love, for strength and purpose for each today and bright hope for tomorrow! I’m also grateful to each dear friend who takes the time and cares enough to read about what’s goin’ on at the Armstrongs. I feel like a drowned rat and a bad  friend this year. HOPEFULLY, things will calm down in January.

  1. Kathi, I can’t imagine all the stresses you have had this year-both good and bad. But you are fortunate to have your kids around. None of ours will be with us on Thanksgiving. I thought I was going to be with 3 of them but with my broken ankle, we felt travel would be difficult. So we’re staying here. We will be with Tom’s mom-which is great too.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your broken ankle! With out router being on the fritz, I haven’t kept up with everybody’s news! What happened? How long will you be hobbling?

  3. I stepped in a pothole while out running. It happened so fast. I’ll be hobbling for the next 4 – 6 weeks . So sorry we didn’t make it to the reception. I really thought I could but until I saw the orthopedic doctor yesterday, I was really not able to get around at all. We have the gift. Can we drop it off sometime this week?

  4. Ouch! That’s a bummer!

    Yes, we’d love to see you anytime! Just call so we can put our dog in the kennel! Happy Thanksgiving!
