What a great surprise. I got to fly off to NL for the weekend on business matters so I phoned Jason to see if Chez Waters was open for business. Sure enough, there was room for Grandpa for two nights! It wasn’t a long visit and part of the weekend was out on the road but that was great to just have a few hours with these guys. We played with the Brio railroad, a little game Rachel called “restaurant” which comprised in sitting down while she came and took our order for an imagined meal….and then, of course, served with her rather proper manners. We also had a game of what I knew as snakes and ladders but this featured Minions! We had a blast.
Sunday I was in Carbonear for the morning service and a funeral. The CSM welcomed me and announced that it was my father who had dedicated the Carbonear Corps building when it opened. Sure enough just inside the front door was this plaque. So that too was a wonderful moment and reminder of his influence all across this country.
Of course, there was early morning cuddles and lots of hugs! I had to be on my way home Monday morning but did so thanking the LORD for this brief but excellent visit.
Not sure when we’ll be back, but then I didn’t expect this visit so one never knows what is just around the corner.
