A Great Excuse To Be Late
I'm late posting
today's message, but I have a great excuse...I've been hanging out
with my mama, Sam. This morning we had coffee on the back porch, and
sorted through some of her clothes. She's staying with us while she
recovers from a recent illness. Actually, we almost lost her, so I
am very happy to be able to spend time with her now. It's good that
she's here since she would have no help or anyone to talk with at her
It is occasionally
a bit stressful to have another person sharing the house, but the fun
times make it all worthwhile. My sweet husband is helping a lot,
joking around, and doing nice things for both of us. Sam's always
been feisty, so she's determined to recover enough to go back home
and drive her car again. Whether or not that happens, I think she's
doing well with her home physical therapy. She's still weak and gets
tired easily, but we did have a short outing last Thursday to get her
hair highlighted and cut. A sassy new do is a wonderful pick-me-up!
I'm getting mine done this week.
I'm grateful for
this opportunity, even if it makes me late, or keeps me from other
tasks. The ordinary things will get done eventually. What's
important now is Sam. After all, she's my mama and she made plenty
of sacrifices for me.
We often take for granted
the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
