Celebrations are nice and we have a fair amount of them here at North Ranch. Sunday afternoon, Diana celebrated her 75th birthday with a host of friends and neighbors at a park in Wickenburg. Her husband, Bill, with the help of their seven combined children, gave an hour program of her life, which of course, involved all of them as well. Since it is unlikely guests would know all the participants, except for Diana and Bill, most of us probably felt an hour would be a bit long time. It wasn’t. I have never seen such a well-presented documentation. And of course when it was over and the lights came on, a good many of us, including the men, were wiping away tears even though we had also had more than a few laughs.
Watching the news each day, we have reason to wonder if anything in the world is going right, then you look around, as I did Sunday afternoon. I knew most of the guests. They were either fellow Escapees or church friends. One of the songs played in the presentation was a favorite of mine, “It’s a Wonderful World,” and you know, for the most part, it is. It helps to have a positive attitude. God Bless until next time.
