Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends. This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better. Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.
Together we can do this!
Hello friends – how was your holiday? Did you get enough turkey? It was probably one of the best holidays we have had in a while here at the Hotel Thompson. We ate, slept, sat around watching a LOT of football – screamed at the games and cheered for the players, slept some more and chilled. I was off of work for FIVE entire days and did not think about it one single time. It was as close to heaven as I could get for sure. I finally did hear back from my doctor Friday for the additional blood tests. Everyone was right. I’m in a major flare up so some of my medicines have been tweaked. I’m feeling so much better today so YAY for that! Over the holidays, we also worked on Christmas Cards. We had a little line going trying to get everything taken care of during this break. Some of you may have gotten emails/texts from us inquiring about your address. Please check your emails and those that responded back – thanks! We will be putting everything in the mail in the next couple of weeks. We *attempted* to work on some packages to be mailed. But -cough cough- some anipals (Bacon, Houdini and Hemi) thought everything was for them. It’s hard to explain that not every toy bought into this house is theirs. Funny how life works that way, right? So if you receive a package from us, overlook the added hair. Just think of that as more love – LOL.
And while you are addressing your Christmas cards this year, we would like to ask for you to do one thing. Please remember our soldiers. If you can, please send a card or two to the recovering soldiers. I’m sure that it would brighten their day. Thanks my friends – have a great week. Only FOUR more weeks until Christmas!
