Had a incredible day with my son Nick!! It was great to see him at his home and doing so well... (This picture is Nick with his dog Chief here at the farm - did not take a picture of him Tuesday - we kind of suck at remembering those kind of things) I think it did both of us good to spend the time together. We went for a 3.5 mile walk in the Colorado sun - nothing better for fixing what needs fixing. We then went to lunch at a Greek restaurant that the kids have been eating at since they could sit at a table - the waiters are these little old men who I always feel are magical - their joy and serve can put a smile on any one's face. A Gyro Plate fills the tummy and the soul..
Then we returned back home. I wanted him to nap a bit but next on Nick's wish list to do with me was make German Christmas Cookies. We worked as a well oiled team - 26 years of practice will do that to you and then off to get Reese from the sitters...
We shared dinner and I then headed home to the farm. On the long drive home I knew my son was on the mend with great things ahead of him. I also had a little bit of time to see in his son's eyes all those fun filled years we shared while Nick learned about the world. He has much more to learn ahead of him but for now my son is on the mend and making Christmas Cookies... Life is grand!!
I again want to take this time to thank you all who kept Nick in the light - I can not express in words how much this means to us and I know it made all the difference in the world. I also want to say again to Carol (DIL Mother) who flew all by herself for the first time to come and take care of Reese and all the needs in their home during this stressful time. Blessings and Thanks Everyone!
