Friends Are Great

Our family has been blessed with good great friends. Today's blog goes out to our friends Ron & Becky Glenn. Ron is a volunteer Fire Fighter and loves little kids. As we are approaching Gabe's surgery we didn't want him to go to Daycare and Becky being the great friend that she is said that she would watch Gabe for us on Monday. Becky decided that since her husband is a Fire Fighter it would be fun to take Gabe and another friend to the Fire Station for a visit. Not only did Gabe and Cooper get to visit the Station but they also got to go for a ride. The pictures below only show a glimpse of excitement that these boy had during there morning out. Thank you so much Ron and Becky for not only being friends to John and I but for also loving our son. Boys and their toys!
Becky also is a wonderful photographer and when a mom can't be there for a moment like this it means the world to her to be able to be a part of it by the wonderful way she captured the moment.

I'm thinking that it doesn't get any better than this for a four year old. He could not wait for me to get home from work to tell me all about it. I love the complete joy that is on his face in this picture. Without friends this world would be a very sad place and we are so thankful for ALL of our friends and the way that each one of them bless our lives.

  1. Amen to that, my friend. I love that last picture of Gabe. He is full of joy. I'll be praying for his surgery on Wednesday.

    Love and Miss you,

    P.S. We can't wait to be back home as well. In the meantime, we will experience "Joy in the Journey" because everything happens for a reason.
