Wow, 2 postings in one week. Amazing. But I just had to share this.

Yesterday the Kelly Benson House hosted a 1st year Anniversary Celebration and Buffet Dinner. After a delicious dinner, the honoring began. Besides Pamela Atkinson, Kelly Benson was there too. I felt so humbled. Pamela received a certificate for all her humanitarian work and lots of other names were called to receive certificates as well. I believe there were about 100 of them. It was sad to see that many of them weren't there. I received one too and when I went to receive it, there was a loud cheering. WOW, as I said before, it was quite humbling.

Bill Watson, the chairman of the Resident Board told his story. It is totally amazing and wonderful that he is still alive and doing as good as he is. There were not too many dry eyes as we listened to him.

My love, you certainly would have enjoyed the event. Knowing how much you supported me - you would have busted in the seams with pride.

Something I forgot to tell you. I went to see Dr. Tempest on Tuesday and we scheduled my cataract surgery for Monday, July 11. The right eye will be for reading and the left one is for distance. After he fixed my left eye - remember how good it felt that I could see again. I still have 20/20 vision on that one. I am so looking forward to the surgery.

I love you sweetheart. Be well.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone say they were looking forward to surgery, but good for you! I hope it is successful and your vision improves as you hope. I have cataracts also but they are just in the beginning stages. So one day I will be having the surgery too I'm sure.
