Most Pleasant Surprise

My brother Mike called this afternoon and asked us if we could meet him for dinner this evening. Catch is, he lives in Orlando, and he we are in Michigan. Come to find out, he was flying into Grand Rapids at 5:30 pm. He will be here just for the night and heading to see a fraternity brother tomorrow in Northern Ohio who is very ill.

Anyway, Mike wanted to see our Mother and give her a hug. She's been through a lot this past week. Richard, Mother and I drove to GR and picked up Mike at the airport and went to Longhorn Steakhouse for a nice dinner.
Our visit was short but oh so sweet! Great seeing you Mike. Thanks again for dinner!
