Good morning? Well I just got up. I didn't go to bed until after 7:30 this morning. The phone has been ringing itself off the hook since then.
Patty, I'm grateful that you had such a wonderful relationship with your mother that you miss her now. Your memories of her and the things you did with her are constant and as time passes they will become more abundant. I know you are missing her during this holiday season. That is to be expected since we share more loving activities at this time of the year. Wrap yourself in the happy memories. Keep them warm and plentiful. Pursue the traditions that your mother gave you. Those traditions will sustain you and your children from now on. Please accept my good wishes for you.

Good day ladies, Sarah gave me a call earlier. She is doing better. The biopsy they did while treating the abscess came back ok. so that is wonderful news. She said she was up walking some with a walker earlier. Of course the antibiotics they have her on has some side effects. But all in all, she sounds much better. Still has at least 2 or 3 weeks of rehab. She is at a new place now. Gulf Shore Rehab Center. She is in room 501 and the number directly to her room is 727 258 6501. I'll have to get the address and add it. I don't know why I didn't write it down when I googled the sight to get the hospital phone number. Oh well.
It is dreary and rainy here today. I think we might get some snow about Monday and Tuesday. Probably some of what you are getting today, Patty. I know what you mean about grieving. You think you are ok and then something reminds you and it starts all over again. But it does get better. It is a healing process. Sometimes it seems to take a long time to heal. and as Ann said the holidays are harder sometimes. Too many memories of the past I guess. We are all here for you, Patty. Just remember we all love you and care about you.
Good Morning, 73 and climbing. I'm prepared with caprie's on. At 2 p.m.we will have our brown bag auction to raise money for Make A Wish. Last night after supper we opened the Toys for Tots gift that we wrap. I'd say there were about 40 gifts. (36 here but some that couldn't come sent their toy) 2 of the gifts could be for a boy or girl toddler, 2 were Harry Potter books, two were girly girl gifts and the rest were either a car or truck type for boys. We all thought that was very unusual. The wagonmasters car was loaded up and he will deliver them to the Marine center where the toys are being gathered for distribution.
Patty, I'm sure during the holidays it will be a little rough for you but it will get better. My mother would have been 100 last Tues if she had lived two more years. I know she was going down hill and two more years would have been miserable for her. She would not have wanted to be that dependant on having to have someone help her 24/7.
Once we get home I must get my Ch. cards mailed. They have been addressed but I must write a note for each of the out of towners. I have learned this week I better lay off the baking and candy making. I have no control when it come to sweets and then I suffer later.
