David has always been the entertainer in our family. There is never a dull moment when he's around. He's always got a story to tell about something and it usually involves himself. The funny thing is, he came in on Friday and the minute he saw Hudson, the terrorizing began. A 51 year old man taking every chance he could to make sure Hudson knew who "Crazy Uncle David" is. I never knew a 2 year old toddler and a 51 year old man could argue and be so crazy together.
We originally had a trip to Hawaii planned together, then my health did not allow us to travel. We considered going to Colorado for a long weekend, but those plans did not work out either. We decided a weekend together was all we needed and it didn't matter where we were. People travel from all over the United States and the world to Northwest Arkansas, so we knew this would be a perfect place and time for us to be together.
Our fun with Crazy Uncle Dave & Hudson began on Friday night. David & Traci did not know who Iron Man was, but now they do. In Hudson's world, GPa (Tony) is Iron Man. He knows Iron Man's name is Tony Starks but if you ask him what Iron Man's name is, he says "Tony Starks GPa". We watched Ironman One on Saturday and the whole time during the movie he says "look GPa it's you , you are Iron Man".

I am so thankful that God gave me a great weekend with my family. I felt great and will always cherish the bond I share with my family. David & Traci, thank you for taking some time off to come hang out with our family. We loved every minute of it and nothing can take the place of "time". We love and appreciate you both very much. We are grateful for the relationship we share with the two of you. God has truly blessed our lives and families.
Tomorrow I go in for another round of chemo. Praying my numbers are good and that all continues to go well for the chemo to go into my body and kill every bad cell that is not supposed to be in there. I'm not saying that I have the "C" word anymore but that I'm taking chemo and that "by His stripes, I have been healed!" Thank you Jesus for saving and healing me!!
"Today is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it."
