Thanksgiving & Giving Thanks by Russ & Carolyn Benton
|Hello everyone! Russ and I would like to say a very special "Happy Thanksgiving" to everyone. We are looking forward to the family reunion in Tulsa on December 6. My mind reflected on the events that have happened since our last family reunion in Eureka Springs. I believe that was in June. Russ and I had visited with the family at John and Julie's beautiful home and had just returned to our motel room. We discussed the wonderful time we had, we settled in our beds and around 3:00 A.M., we got a call from my sister back home. My Mom had fallen and broken her hip. So, at 3:15 A.M., we were on our way to the hospital in Conway, AR. Needless to say, that was a long night and we regretted that our visit in Eureka Springs was cut short. We are saying a special prayer that this family reunion will be filled with loving, long-lasting memories.
Russ and I plan to travel to Tulsa on Friday, arriving in the early evening. We haven't made our motel reservations yet but will do that the first of next week. We had planned to make it to Uncle Hank's and Aunt Judy's around noon on Saturday. If anyone has an schedule of the events, please post it on Rosenose so that Russ and I can plan accordingly.
We love you all and are looking forward to the reunion.
Russ and Carolyn Benton
