The Week that Was

A word from Curt

We’re doing fine. Splitting time between Dry Creek (with my Mom) and Alexandria (Grandkids and our soon-to-be new house).

I’m doing better health-wise.   I’m having more good days than bad days.  Still losing weight (DeDe is making fun of my pants sagging).  We’re still praying for healing and clarity on what is causing ongoing illness.

We have a return appointment to New Orleans in August.  

 

There’s no limit to the “Wow Moments” in one’s life.

Unlimited.

No expiration date.

No shelf life.

Age or background makes no difference.

My calling as a writer, and more importantly as a human being, is to look for those Wow Moments.

My three step goal is simple:

1. Be curious.

2. Be amazed.

3. Tell a story

  1. Curt and DeDe, so thankful that you are getting to spend that precious time with grandkids. What a gift!
    Will continue to pray for healing, and regaining strength and weight.
