Last week, after bringing mom back to Jacksonville, our friends, Cathy and Bruce, invited us all over for appetizers and cocktails while watching the sunset from their beautiful home on the St. John’s River.
Cathy and Bruce are amazing hosts who open their home twice a month for our church home group of up to 25 people each time, since they are the only ones with space to accommodate that sized crowd! And Cathy is always so considerate to prepare special keto (low-carb) snacks for us….how sweet to have friends like that!
It was a beautiful, relaxing evening with good friends and God’s glory on display.
We are grateful for such great friends!
We also were able to take mom down to Flagler Beach on Saturday to visit our former next-door neighbors at their beach house.
After meeting them at their home, along with our current across-the-street neighbors, Bill and Dedie, we all walked up to the bar on the pier for Happy Hour.
While enjoying our cocktails, we were visited by dolphins swimming by, so that was very exciting for mom.
After walking to a local restaurant for dinner outside with live music playing, we returned to Bill and Susan’s house for some karaoke fun! The Bills and Carl did most of the singing but Susan and I had fun being back-up dancers for many songs. It was another great time with fun friends, although we sure wore Bill and Dedie out.
Some other things during mom’s visit, included a few games nights with Zack,
…a rainy afternoon spent watching an Iron Man marathon with Margaritas for Cinco De Mayo,
…an afternoon matinee to watch Avengers: End Game,
….and lots of floating around the pool!
Mom is a low-key, easy guest who is grateful to just enjoy the Miklas Resort! We are happy to have her with us and wish that she would move down to Jacksonville. For somebody that enjoys the sun as much as mom, it seems like the perfect fit. If it wasn’t for those sweet little grandbabies back in Illinois, it would be a sure thing! Oh well. Until next time…thanks for coming, mom!
