We are also gathering with friends to socialize and broaden our circle even a bit more. Both of those things are very important but I have failed to mention something that is going to make this night even more special. Rod Mills, from our CAG group is making a special effort to “come see us” and be on hand that night to present Bigbird with the “Second Annual Michael “Bigbird” Strickland Four on the Floor Award”.
Rod hails from Cincinnati, Ohio. His son is graduating from Basic Training early next week at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia & he is swinging by the Captain’s Qtrs for 2-3 days before heading back to Ohio. Rod holds a very special place in my heart because two years ago when grandson Gage was in the NICU at the Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, Rod adjusted his schedule to not only visit Gage & family in the hospital but he even took me fishing & out to eat as well!! See story here: http://forum.gon.com...0687&highlight=
I want Rod to see how we operate. I’d love to see 25-30 folks at Wallace’s to give him just a small taste of the love and camaraderie that I am blessed to experience every day.
If you have not responded yet to my invitation I sure hope that you will give it some thought & help me to extend some real Southern Hospitality to “Uncle Rod” next week! (Remember, I need to know if you are coming by next Tuesday @ noon! (So far, we have 20 signed up to come!!)
In the meantime, if you don’t think that God is still in the miracle business, just look at our Gage now!!!!
BTW, you might just see a bit more about our contest in an upcoming NACA! Stay tuned and Come see us!
