Hey, I have not run away or done any thing drastic. I do have to praise the Lord for an extra special blessing, My eldest grand daughter showed up for a visit Friday evening It was so good to see her. Before Christmas this last year I had not seen her for about 2 years. Her mom really didn't want her to have too much to do with this side of the family. This all started within less than a year after her dad, my son, was killed in an accident. I kept my mouth shut and did not criticize nor complain. I knew that the love was there and some day there would come a day when she wanted to come back and be with us. She is now 18 and does a little more on her own and because of that she is coming back to those who love her.
It is such a blessing because she was always my little girl. I brought her home from the hospital when she was born and when we lived closer she was with me a lot. I have to thank God that she has been here. She and her boyfriend also came to visit before they headed back home.
Today I am having a good day. I have actually been able to get some things done and not get too winded and not have the tightness in my chest. Right now I am taking a little break and then I am going to get a little more done. One big job was getting all of the paper and cardboard burned. I had not done that for over a month and the trash can for them was overflowing. I noticed today that I am going to have to break down and get a new burning barrel. I will probably do that in April and have Michael come over and get the one here emptied and the ashes raked out over the garden and holes drilled in the new one so we will be set for the next couple of years.
I praise the Lord for the good day that I am having and know that even though not all days are good that once the surgery is over and the healing process well under way that I will be better than I have for a good long while.
I am already planning my big project for this summer. I will get the privacy fence put up out back It is time to stop planning and get doing. I may even be able to dig my own post holes. If Ii can't I believe that Michael will do them for me. I will be making the fence and not buying sections already made. That way it will be easier for me to work with making everything look ok as it comes down the slope in the yard.
Praise and thank the Lord for a great day.
YOU ARE IN MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS
