Sunday I visited with my Mom and her husband Bill. I’ve not seen my mother in years, and it was good to see her. As we grow older and after losing my dear husband things that happened in the past need to stay in the past, and we need to move forward. This reunion was good for both of us. She’s 84. Bill will be 95 in Dec. and he is taking very good care of her. I’m the first born, have two younger sisters. During this visit one time when we were kissing/hugging, she called me “My baby.” Something she’s never said before and it really blessed my heart.
While there I admired two wooden bodied cranes in their garden bed, and later Bill told me to pick one to take home. So, I did and it now graces my secret garden. I can see it whenever I’m at the sink doing dishes, getting water, or whatever, and I think of them and the good visit we had.
My sis-in-law took me out there, a little over 2 hours away, and dropped me off to visit my Mom while she visited friends that lived in the town. She and I had a good visit too and from.
This morning she and I were going to see the movie ‘War Room’, but I’m going to the dentist instead. I have two teeth that are bothering me, and I’ll either have one or both pulled today. I ‘HATE’ going to the dentist, but have put it off long enough. The pain comes and goes, sometimes worse than others.
That’s it for now. My nerves are jittery to say the least.
Tuesday was mine and DH’s 46th anniversary. I didn’t fix a special dinner because I wasn’t feeling all that great, sore throat, coughing. I just opened a can of Bush’s Baked Beans and fixed all beef no preservatives, no nitrates etc. hot dogs, made baked yucca fries and fixed a margarita using my first fresh key lime from my own little tree. The fresh lime juice was wonderful. This was our favorite celebratory drink. I missed having him with me, but he’s in a much better place, cheering me on and one day we will be reunited.
