You are so right Nope. Like Lala, a dear friend of mine and his family is going through an extremely hard time right now due to his health. Yesterday his grown son called me crying and I talked to him for about an hour and a half. Last night my friend himself called and after talking to him I had to have my own cry about the situation. Things like that put the pettiness in life in total perspective. I tell you, sometimes...no, a lot of times I sure don't understand why God allows what He allows to happen. I don't understand it and I sure don't like it but I've learned not to doubt Him even though it's hard not to sometimes. I have faith that in the end all will work out for the best and then He might even allow us to understand why certain things happened. Please do put my friend on your prayer list.Breakfast was delish, thank you Lord for the blessing of a warm meal again today.
AW, I was even further north during that awful winter of '62. The whole city we lived in came to a screeching halt. I'll never forget it. I was sick during that one too and I remember that the heater in our house, although a good one for that time period, still barely kept the house warm. I was in bed with so many of my grandmas quilts over top of me, I thought I'd be smashed like a pancake. But they kept me warm as toast. I still have one of those quilts to this day, although I don't use it any more. It's SO old that it's in too delicate of a condition. Best that it's left to just admire now.
Lala, I hope your friend finds a solution to her problem. She's lucky to have such as friend as you. There are some who have to suffer in silence because for whatever reason, they have no on to confide in. Even if you don't have any answers for her, at least you're an ear when troubles get too deep for her to bear alone. That silent and hearing "ear" alone can save many from doing something "irreversible" to themselves, whether we ever truly find out or not...
I'm going to go lay down. Breakfast hit me like a ton of bricks right in the middle of doing up the dishes, hehe. Again, thank you Lord for not only the warm meal, but the option to go lay down and rest some more.
It's a good day. Hope you all are having the same. Those of you who have to go out, please be careful. I want to see each of you on here later today and in good humor!!
This has been SUCH a pleasant break from all of the nastiness of the past few weeks. I'm sure that WKG can relate as well..
*Poof, for now*
Good morning everybody!:) I hope you are all doing well today. My outdoor thermometer said it got down to 11'F here last night. I liked the 70'F day before yesterday better, even if it was kind of freaky. lol Last night about 7:ish it s'ed her like crazy! The flakes were quarter sized! Beautiful but I don't like the cold that goes with it!(or the dangerous roads) It didn't stick to the road and most of the accumulation was already gone this morning.
I'm ready for spring!...and eyeing my treadmill. So much to do and so little want to. lol
