Hosting!

Thursday evening was a wonderful time of fellowship!  As I mentioned yesterday, I expected guests for dinner. 

My friend/co-worker C was kind enough to pick up both L and B at their homes in the downtown Windsor area.  K, my neighbour/friend from across the hall joined us.  So, in total there were five (5) of us.

We enjoyed some great conversation before our meal, then enjoyed a great roast beef dinner, together.  At least that's what they told me; that dinner was great.  lol

We laughed so hard at times, that tears came to many eyes!

Seriously, all in all, it was a great evening.  I truly felt blessed having this group of friends in my home.

Of course, the birthday cupcakes didn't hurt, either. 

Within a few days is both C and B's birthdays, so it was a great reason to get together.  It gave us something to celebrate.  Even though it wasn't L or K's birthday, I placed a candle in each of their cupcakes. 

This meant that everyone had a cupcake with a lit candle in it.  Except for me, of course.  I didn't need to have anything more to have to exercise to work off my poor body!

It truly was a great way to finish our meal, for we sang Happy Birthday to all our friends!  Hopefully, everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I thought they did. 

Once again, Happy Birthday, friends!

It was quite late when I cleaned up, so it was quite late when I went to bed for some shut eye.  Even so, I was up early Friday morning.

Knowing I had an appointment later in the morning, I went to exercise earlier than normal.  Afterwards, I had to pick up a couple of things on my way home, because again this evening, I was expecting company for dinner.

I suppose you could say I enjoy hosting.  I enjoy having people around me.  I enjoy celebrating for whatever reason there is to celebrate.

Tonight, there truly was no reason to celebrate.  My neighbour/friend K from across the hall, plus a fairly new friend G, who exercises usually at the same time I do and who I found out lives across and down the street from me, were due to join me for dinner.

So after exercise and shopping, I had to continue my preparations for tonight's meal.  Then, it was time to head out to my business meeting.

Upon returning from my business meeting, I continued preparing for my guests arrival.  This was once again interrupted, because I had to leave to pick up my grandson J and take him to my Chiropractor.

After J had his treatment and I mine, we headed home.  J to his home, then me to mine.  Phew!  It never ceases to amaze me how God's timing is always perfect.  I arrived home five (5) minutes before my guests were to arrive!

In the end, K didn't join G and I for dinner.  When I arrived home, she was crying.  We spoke until G arrived.  Then, K went home.

So, instead of being seated for dinner with us, I fixed a plate for her and she enjoyed it in her apartment.  Tonight, we feasted on a shrimp dinner.  K always loves that; I was sure it would do her good!

Once again, I must thank God for how He loves me and provides for me, always.  He never ceases to amaze me, how He always works things out, even to the smallest detail.  Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
