With this being Thanksgiving week, I am reflecting on the things which I am most thankful for this Nov 2015.
First, I am thankful for Jesus Christ sacrifice on the Cross for my sins, so that by loving Him and accepting Him as my Lord and Savior, I might be saved and have eternal life with Him.
Second, I am thankful for my wonderful husband of 29 years and for our beautiful children and grandchildren.
Third, I am thankful for friends near and far, and for friends like all of you.
May God bless each one of you and your families and may He draw all of you closer to Him.

My husband and I have been involved with the ShihTzu Rescue of MN for almost 3 years now. We foster dogs who are strays, end up in humane societies or have been given up due to health, financial, moving issues or owner's death. We have fostered or temp fostered around 12 dogs. Our current dog is Mickey. He came from a shelter in Sioux City, Iowa. What a great little boy. He will get adopted soon. We flunked fostering a year ago and adopted our foster dog, Sylvia, a Southern Bell from Alabama. See pic of Sylvia, a ShihTzu mix about 6 yrs old now.

Yes, I was sad to hear about Caroline Reeves death also.  We were cheerleaders together so we had lots of time at games and practices to share and spend time together.  Caroline was bubbly, high energy, a leader, a take charge person and very smart. I haven't seen her for many years, but it sounds like she had a good life in Colorado.  She will be deeply missed by family and friends.

Thanks Marcia. Yes, it is rewarding and I love working with the team. We work hard, but have fun too. Moving our parent's is very emotional for all of us. I helped my folks several times too.

Thanks Merry for the feedback on CLS. I suspect your folks used Gentle Transitions, that is the largest such company. It is hard work, but very rewarding. I am sure everyone was happy to receive this help. I is usually a very emotional time for families and makes it so much easier for them. If you have contacts you can send me an email with the name and number. I can sent them a short video of what we do and then make a contact to Cathy for them. I have a 2 day move the end of the month and probably do 2-3 moves a month. Great connecting with you and so many other classmates this past year. See you soon.

I work PT for a company called Changing Lifestyle Solutions. Cathy Matrejek is the owner of this business. We help people of all ages move out of one place and move to another place. Many of the moves involve seniors moving out of a large home to a smaller place, Assisted Living or even a nursing home. We totally pack up the house, move furniture and boxes to the new place and then totally unpack the boxes so the new place is similar to their other place. This is especially important for seniors. If you have a parent, family member, friend or yourself who would like some information on what we do contact Cathy at 612-986-3196 or contact me. It is hard work, but knowing how much we are helping others makes the job rewarding and worth my time and effort.

Happy Birthday, Sue! See you at reunion!

Dec 12, 2015 at 11:17 AM

Beautiful music, Peter. Yes, you definitely need to play at the reunion. It has been fun to find out what our classmates have been doing the past 50 years. Everyday is a gift from God. As we reflect on the many friends that have gone on to their eternal home, we know our day will come also. In the meantime we live out our dash----- 1948- to the glory of God!

Great to see you on the site, Cindy. It is fun to reconnect from our friends of the past.
