THE HEAVILIN HERALD
As I looked back over the year of 2008, I remembered some high points as well as some low points. The low points definitely include the home going of many of our friends and family.
The high points include celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, seeing so many of our friends, and meeting our entire family in New York City to celebrate our anniversary. It was so much fun to have our entire family around the table at Beccos in NYC. Thanks to Jennifer Toneck, we were able to orchestrate the entire event including attending a performance of Mary Poppins. Fifty years! Can you believe that? It doesn’t seem possible until I realize that our children will be celebrating their 27th and 25th wedding anniversaries in 2009.
We thoroughly enjoyed seeing our daughter perform as Marian the Librarian in The Music Man. Mellyn’s performance was mesmerizing and we nearly popped our buttons because we were so proud of her. She graduated from college this year as well and is now subbing as an elementary school teacher.
Marilyn got to be reunited with her cousin Bobbie after more than 50 years. Getting in touch with family has become very important to both of us.
We spent Christmas with Mike, Mellyn, and Christian in Rocklin, CA. We are now parked in the Buellton area of California and plan to arrive in Morro Bay for our sixty day stay on January 8. While we are parked here, we took the opportunity to see the Pacific Ocean and visit the Monarch butterfly grove in Pismo, CA. We are constantly in awe of God’s amazing plan of nature that the butterflies consistently return to that same eucalyptus grove every year. How do the butterflies know to go to that same spot each year? Why do they always choose that same grove when there are many eucalyptus groves in the area? Who tells them where to go? (The orange spots in the picture are butterflies.)
We love to catch a view of the ocean, just to make sure it is still there! Yup, it is.
Just recently Marilyn saw a view of a sunrise that she wanted to share with you.
MAY YOUR HOLIDAYS BE GENTLE AND YOUR NEW YEAR PEACEFUL.
