It's nearly the end of 2014 and there is so much for which I am thankful. This last winter was very cold, colder than normal, but that didn't dim the glory of the glorious sky.
Spring brought the fun and excitement of traveling to Montana to visit Mom and attend my nieces graduation from Montana State University. Oh, what a grand time we had. There was the glory of spring flowers and the Montana skies. Mom turned 89 in May and though she suffers from dementia she is so very healthy! And she can still beat me at dominoes!!!! Thanks be to God!
Our annual visit to Colorado to get our Rocky Mountain High... and no I don't need marijuana to get one. We visited friends and family. The "boys" played with the train and took some very realistic photos. We had a friendly buck come as spend several hours with us and made himself at home. Our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park, as always, lifts the spirits. And finally, our trip to Cheyenne, Wyoming to visit the railroad museum there was a high light for Ron as he was able to get pictures of a layout for his precious Argo Mill.
Finally this year ends in celebration of life and family. I retired the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and was surprised by Wes and Laura as they "crashed" the party at work and brought me to tears for their thoughtfulness. I was also surprised by two special ladies, Christine and Jamie, with whom I had the privilege to work. Leaving Newburgh Family Physicians was hard. I worked with an incredibly conscientious and compassionate doctor and a staff that has each and every patient at heart.
Christmas brought the Keller Clan together. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to have all my children, their spouses and grandchildren all here!!! Oh my what fun we had!! We were able to have a family portrait taken for the first time in 10 years. Time spent with family is always time well spent!!!
Thanks be to God!!!
