Visiting the Tupitzas
Monday we visited Sallie and Victor Tupitza. Since Lucy no longer has any great-grandparents, I’ll just call them her adopted greats! But I am pretty certain there are lots of people who feel that way, as well. The Tupitzas are our friends from Calvary. And my one regret about my time in DC was not making an effort to meet Sallie sooner. Amy told me for a year that I had to meet Sallie. We had so much in common. She was right. But time flew by before me and that just happens sometimes.
Here they are on their 62nd wedding anniversary! Aren’t they the cutest?
During our trip on Monday, Victor told us all about the wine he brewed in the bathroom and lauded Leah for starting a Theology on Tap small group. Silly Americans. The Europeans knew what they were doing discussing theology over a few good pints. So said Victor. I think that they should start blogging like the 90-year-old blogger in Ohio. I know that they can do it. At least a year ago, Sallie was regularly visiting the Mac store to learn how to use her laptop.
We left with books in tow. I have mine on my bedside table. I can’t wait to read it. It is about the fourth wise man. I am hoping that it will inspire me for my advent series, which will be here before I know it.
On Tuesday, Sallie started a seven-week series of chemo. We pray that it goes well and that she will regain some of her lost energy. And Lucy can’t wait for her next visit. Leah and I feel the same way. Wow!
