We hit the ground running this week, and it's only Wednesday, and we've already shared three meals with three different sets of friends and family from out of state, and country!
Above is Les and Nancy. Don knew Les back in High School days and they were coming through Southern CA on their way home in Idaho and we were able to have lunch Tuesday at Stonefire Grill.
Then Tuesday evening we had dinner with Kris and Ted. Those of you who have followed my blog for a long time know Kris as my lifelong friend. We met as small children. Lived across the street from each other and our friendship spans 70 years.
Kris and I went to Biola College together where I met my dearest. Kris met Ted a little later and they just retired, but spent their life translating the New Testament into Zapotec with Wycliffe Bible Translators and leave their legacy in villages where the work continues with those Ted trained to carry on.
Then today, we had lunch at Dave and Busters with Don's niece and nephew from Sweden. And also another nephew and his son. We don't get to see this part of the Slaven family very often, so this was a real treat! They head back to Sweden in a couple weeks.
So the beat goes on, and with all this eating out...I think I will need to get very serious about salad's only next week.
But what a blessing to be able to visit with dear friends and family. Life is short...We don't know what tomorrow brings, so we must live each day like the last and enjoy it to the fullest!!
