I went to visit a 90 year old lady who has been sick.  Never visited with her that much but she’s always been an encouragement and a sweet presence here in the community.  So after hearing about how sick she was on Thursday, I struggled with knowing if I wanted to go visit her on Friday, or just remember her sitting on her front porch greeting me with a cheery hello.  With the encouragement of Shannon and Norma, I decided to go, knowing that I would probably regret it, if I didn’t.  We were told by a friend of hers, that she was doing much better and when she visited with us, she actually was able to take her oxygen mask of and speak more then a couple words at a time.  And I noticed an improvement later in the day when I took dinner back for her.  I only stayed a couple minutes, but she had the mask off about the whole time saying sentence after sentence.  I was so encouraged and am hoping and praying that God grants her a couple more years.  It’s so easy to take people for granted and just expect that Ms Walker will always be there sitting on her porch.   I want to do better at treasuring the relationships I have right now. 

Candance, Kyonna, and Sheanise, came over yesterday afternoon, and we did various random things.  I cooked some chicken, broccoli, and rice.  Sheanise worked on a school project (that had off school for teachers something, somethin).  Kyonna scrapbooked.  I did laundry.  Candance swept the floor for me.  And then, they all scapbooked.  

I chilled with Norma in the evening.

Today. . .

I woke up at 5:40 to take Norma to work since it was raining and she didn’t have a vehicle.  Was so glad I didn’t have to work and could come back and crawl in bed for a couple more hours

I am anticipating the arrival of some dear friends. 

A great weekend to all.
