We had a safe trip and a good trip. My brother, Steve, is doing better than we expected. He was very happy to see us and we spent Friday morning with him. He has such a determination and will to live. He showed us around the lovely facility and we took some photos and met some of the wonderful caring people that were there with him. When it came time to leave, it was hard, but I knew he would be ok.
That same afternoon, we also visited my husband's father who was in the Brethren Village in Lititz. He has been ill and recovering from a stroke and some surgery. He was very happy to see us too, and we spent the afternoon with him and my husband's great grandmother that resides at the home. She is 101 years old. We had Otis and Riley along and they brought smiles to the faces of everyone.
We enjoyed a delicious New Years dinner at my mother in law's of pork and sauerkraut (for good luck), and it was so good to be with all the family.
We saw the most beautiful sunset on our trip.
And now we are safely home and ready for the new year. Hopefully we will all be blessed with joy, happiness, health and prosperity in this new year. Best wishes!
