blogging our home building process

Monday, November 21, 2011


We are grateful and appreciative this Thanksgiving for many things but we are just going to name a few. 

Ron - we are thankful for him for his talent, help, wisdom and sacrifice of living hundreds of miles away from his dear wife, Lori so that he can help build Deeradise. 

We are grateful for our land and the opportunity to build a home for ourselves. 

We are most grateful for our family and friends and each other.  We miss not being with the Ferguson/Wharff families for Thanksgiving in Kansas but are so glad to be spending the holiday time in Florida with Jason's family.  As most of you know, this is a very special Thanksgiving as Jason's mom, Kay, has been fighting for her life these last few months battling pancreatic cancer.  We were able to bring her home from the hospital this last weekend and have a wonderful Thanksgiving feast planned at home.  We truly cherish the time we have with our loved ones here on earth and thank God for His sacrifice so that we may all live together again in Heaven.
