My Big Surprise!

Tonight I was headed to Dallas with Mr. Hero.....He had a seminar to go to and I was going to drop him off and do a little shopping. As we get to Rockwall he turned into the shopping center that I wanted to go to and told me I had 5 minutes to get what I needed cause he had a surprise for me. I squealed and said "Does it involve going to the airport?"
He said "Yes."
Kountry was due to land in 30 minutes!

Kountry is our daughter (real name ...Amanda) who lives in LA. (As in California not New Orleans.) 1526 miles from her mama! The last time she was home was in May for Miss Bella's baby shower.

I had been wanting her to come for a visit and to see the baby. And I really wanted her to come home for this weekend because we are having a celebration in the form of a PARTY ......for Mr. Hero and his office crew. He has been practicing dentistry for 30 years this month and that calls for a PARTY! PARTY at the Lakehouse! The rest of the family was coming and I wanted Kountry here too. Also, Miss Bella is getting "Blessed and Dedicated" this Sunday at Family Life Church and Aunt Kountry needed to be here. Well...She kept telling me she was too busy.

SURPRISE......We picked her up at the airport! No, she didn't get off the plane looking quite like the above photo...(that was taken at her class reunion last fall) but she looked pretty good to me!

So I got a surprise tonight and we've got a great family weekend planned.

It doesn't get any better than this!

Thank You Jesus!

And Thank You Mr. Hero!

You are the best!

"Delight yourself also in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart."

Hoping you have a wonderful weekend also!

From my delighted heart to yours!

Patti, I just added you as a link to my blog...I am so happy that he did that for you...what a great happy for him in his 30 years...I was at Baylor Dental School last week taking someone there...and I finally found his picture on the wall...of course, I had to point him out to everyone that I came in contact with...the new 3 year student who was there taking care of my friend. I loved it!!! Tell him Happy Anniversary and good to have fun and congratulations on Bella being dedicated on Sunday. Love you!!!

Just popped in to say "Howdy"!
Hope you got to have a nice visit. Do you cry at baby dedications? I seem to cry at anything like that at church....especially the baptisms! Have a great week!!
