We got by with a little help from our kids
and they soared with a little help from us.
David got us online with email;
Jean revved up our health and nutrition;
Rhonda’s book signings inspired my writing;
she and Duff rooted us in family and church.

Our joint memory bank deposits grew on visits 
with family in Washington NH, Bethlehem PA, 
Hayesville NC, Blacksburg VA and Newfane NY;
golden times with just the two of us 
included Chincoteague and Thousand Islands;
we visited CRCs in four states plus our home church 
where I was a greeter, Jim was in my Sunday School class
and we each took a turn leading Friendship Bible Study.

In dawn love letters to Jesus I wrote:
“Thanks for being all things to all people;
teach me my limits but stretch me 
out of my comfort zone too; guide us in this
huge and wonderful responsibility to care for Judah.”
