A full day tomorrow

We’re leaving in a few minutes to meet some friends at one of our favorite hangout-spots: Wake Forest Coffee Company. As I sit here waiting for a call from our friends, I realize that we’ve got a full day planned tomorrow.

First, we’re headed to “the Neighborhood” to spend some time with several friends who live there. Lately, we haven’t been able to spend as much time with these friends as we’ve wanted to because of a combination of sickness and other obligations. So, we’re excited to spend some time with these sweet friends tomorrow.

After that, we’ll go spend time with Ms. Jenny. Again, we haven’t been able to see her as often as we would have liked lately. She always likes to talk “religion” with me, and I’m hoping we get a chance to talk tomorrow.

Later in the afternoon, we’re going to start cleaning the house because Margaret is hosting a Christmas ornament exchange party for some of her friends and our daughter Miranda’s friends. They had a great time doing this last year, and they’re all looking forward to spending time together again.

Saturday night, several friends are going to join us as we return to the Neighborhood to sing Christmas carols to the people who live there. Obviously, we’ll try to sing to the people that we know – the people that we’ll spend time with in the morning. But, we’re also hoping this will be a chance to meet even more of the neighbors.

So, it’s going to be a full day… but I think it will be a good day.
