     So I have a couple tumors spread across my aging body which saps my strength.  I still can read German (I'm into a strange Teutonic novel on my Kindle - what's my future in that?)  I still enjoy music, Scrabble, leaving the house, excellent food.  Last night, sliced turkey, fresh bread, corn, baked potato and ice cream in a warm home.
      Also last night thousands of Philippine children lost their parents.  The news is hard to watch.  At my worst I am blest.  I hope to leave my family in a way they can cope with.  At least that is the plan..  One more advantage.
     Food for scoffers.  Big challenge to believers. I'm hanging in there with thankfulness.
