If you don't already know, this has been a very emotional weekend for me; I had the privledge of sitting with my grandma whose health is failing forever for two and a half days, and a whole night. This has been a sweet, sweet time for me, but I cannnot write more about it now. There aren't words. I hope to update you though a bit now...more to come, I'm sure.
Oh- and to those of you who might be wondering, Ralph has turned down the VA job, we are not moving.
Thank you, for those friends that are praying. Grandma is mostly unconscious
now, but pray she will get to go home soon, her body is in distress.
Outside my window...the night stars reflect off the rain covered grass in the yard. My cat is probably ready to come in.
I am thankful for... amazingly thankful for such sweet time with my grandma this weekend. It's been absolutely amazing. Gaining perspective too.
From the learning rooms... I am learning perspective. Our lives are truly a breath, and we are stripped to nothing when our lives are over. Investing in God's work and people are the only true riches.
From the kitchen...dishwasher is kindly doing my work, my fridge is full but we're out of fruit. Nothin's cookin' just now.
I am wearing...yoga pants and sweatshirt. I'm cold.
I am creating... memories.
I am going...to pace myself this week.
I am reading...Family Tree, The Bible, Reader's Digest (always)
I am hoping...to feel more rested tomorrow.
I am hearing...My doggy with his new favorite toy, the dishwasher, and quiet.
Around the house...boys are sleeping, doggy is chewing, I pulled out a box of childhood treasures looking for some special photos and paperwork from my grandma. I can't find it. I do have a favorite quilt that she made some 10 years ago. I love, love, love it.
One of my favorite things...laughing.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Bible Study, music class, lots of phone calls, maybe a haircut. Crying, I suppose, though I never plan it. Always comes when I don't plan it.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...
This is a photo from an oldest post...but it's a favorite of mine.
