I am fortunate to have grandkids that love their grandmother so much they will come down and clean for her. Of course, grandma gives them some money. But it is so nice to ask and have them not refuse. What a nice feeling to see the house cleaned, after they finish. Today, my gs helped dh with the leaves and then he came in and did some stuff for me. Then we baked muffins and cookies, which I had him take home. I have enough tempting stuff here as it is. It was a beautiful day. Last night we played checkers and I let him win one game, as I kept showing him how to win. I always played and I am good at it. This morning Hailey decided to wake my gs at 5:30 so he got up to keep her company and then she came in to get me once he was up so I got dh and we decided to go to the Old Colony Buffet for breakfast.
It was early and there were only a few people there and it was nice, but the food was not warm as they put it out before they open the doors. The price is right. Before the drinks were free but now they charge, so what else is new, but they do give seniors a discount. We took our gs home as he has a basketball game and then we decided we needed a nap, so once we went to lie down, Hailey did too. She had to catch up on her sleep too.

What does it take to hold a marriage together, a question many have asked themselves?
Is it a lot of give and take? Is it keeping your mouth quiet when you want to lash out at the person you married? Remember, those words can not be taken back once said. So how do you keep a marriage going for many years? Is it love? Do you love the person so much you will do anything they want? Maybe some marriages but not all. Marriages do not work that way in real life, maybe in a fiction love story, but think about it, there is still conflict before the book or movie ends in happiness. That is how marriage works. You have to pull together and try to work things out. Some older folks will be seen walking holding hands,something you see more in a younger group. They have learned how to manage their time together and still be happy married. Working your problems out together is the only solution to a happy marriage. Grant you, it is not an easy journey and not all will make it, but if you love each other it is worth it in the end.

Winter is coming and bringing snow. Some of us are fortunate to run to Florida, others have to stay and face the torture of shoveling, heating costs, falling, depression, worrying if they can pay heir bills. When we are born we never know what life is going to lead us into. We grow up in a family, some of us happy, others sad, but we grow up and make a life for ourselves. The life we make can always be changed, if we make bad mistakes. Some of us will spend money as we get it and others will try to save it for a rainy day. Some of us will be come doctors, teachers, surgeons, writers, movie stars, famous people, while others will just be people who go to work everyday and come home at night, trying to make a living.
Life does not treat everyone equal. Some will be mothers staying at home with hugh families, waiting and worrying if the husband will keep his job, while others will have money to spend when and where they want. Some will give money to charity and others will not. Some will find money and give it back and receive a reward, others may not. Life holds a different amount of people, some good, some bad, some caring and some not. Life is hard to understand. We wonder why our loved ones have to die. Why God can't save them. We wonder why people have to die in floods, or starve to death. Nobody has the answers.
We worry if there is a Heaven and heare after or if there is a hell, or if we will just die and go to dust. Nobody every figured out what life is all about,why things happen, good and bad.
Why some win lotteries and others don't. But you were born into this life and only you can make it what you want. It is hard work and it may never happen but for sure it is never going to happen if you do not try. Take a writer writing a book who receives several rejections and then decides never to write again and their dream has faded. Some writers have reeived many rejections before they got published. Take a woman who has tried to conceive and only avenue is adoption and then she finds she gets pregnant. We wonder how that happens, but in life, anything can happen. Life is a mystery. As we age life becomes harder to cope with. Many can not get around, many are left alone with a mate gone, many have lost children or parents, but life still goes on and it will until the day you die. So what can you do about it? You have to cope the best you can and get through it and make it the best life you can because you may never enter this earth again for a second try.

What a thrill to live in Mass and have the Red Sox win the World Series? You have to be a sox fan to appreciate it. The parade was great but I think they should have done more or a party,had a band, dancing, lots of fun. Now,soon it will be forgotten and they will try again for next year but maybe not with all the same players, so who knows if they will win again.
Now, we go on to football and God help us if we open our mouth while the Patroits are playing. LOL

With priest disappearing, and older ones retiring, the churchs are combining into one, with one pastor going between two. We are losing our pastor, who has been there for 25 years.
He turns 75 in April and his health is not as good as it used to be, but he retires Jan lst. I imagine there will be a retirement party for him and many tears. He was a great pastor and he will be missed.
Will there be no church someday? Makes you wonder the way things are going? Maybe we will be watching it on tv. Maybe there will be no priest there to anoint the sick or the person leaving the earth. Makes you think about it.
I think if priest were allowed to marry and they had women become priest too, maybe there would be more going into that field. Just my opinion.
