HH and I had a night IN last night, and it was heavenly!!! We watched Faith of Our Fathers. I knew that John McCain had served in Vietnam and was a POW. What I did not know was the length he was a POW....5.5 years. I can't even fathom what that situation would be like for one day, let alone that long. It really gave me a much deeper respect (although I already had a good bit) for him.
Today we went to teach GED classes. We have one more, then will take a break from them until August. Afterwards, we went to see my grandmother for about an hour and a half. I have to tell you about how I feel about my Gran time. It is my time. I don't like "sharing" time with her with others. I am cool with family events, but when I go to her house, I just want it to be our time. Even when I was in middle school, I would get bummed when my aunt would come over when my mom and I would be visiting. It was not that I didn't like my aunt, I just wanted one on one time with my Gran. Fast forward many years later, and I still hold to the same opinion. Luckily today it was jus HH and I visiting.
We left my Gran's house to go have dinner with our friends Doug and Margaret. They are members of a church that is interested in HH as a pastor. We really love spending time with these people. At the various churches we have visited, no one has treated us rudely, but these people have been so gracious to us. I have been looking forward to spending time with them for weeks. We made plans to get together next month. I love having people in our life that we walk away truly feeling blessed to have been with. I feel so refreshed from our visit.
My parents celebrated their 34 anniversary today! Woot! Woot!
