This morning I was all set to jump in the shower and get dressed for a luncheon date with my daughter, Summer!! However, I had a bit of a heavy heart for my sister, Deanie.
When Summer and I talked on the phone, she could tell I was concerned. She suggested I go straight to Fort Worth and visit her knowing how I like to see 'with my own eyeballs' as I say, that she was okay. Plus Summer gave me such encouraging words of wisdom and ended our conversation with prayer - right there on the phone with her sitting in her office. Summer gave me such a gift today. Thinking not of herself but reaching out to encourage her mom and her aunt.
She also shared another blessing she is giving us. She has contacted A Place for Mom and has prepared a spread sheet and created a portfolio with all kinds of information for us. PLUS all telephone calls, mailings and emails go directly to Summer so Deanie does not have to do a thing!
Ruth Ann has promised to help me get Mother approved for Medicaid and I will be following up with that soon! Bottom line - we want to take as much pressure and stress off of Deanie as we possibly can!
She and I had a good visit together this afternoon!
I came in bearing a jar of Texas Trash!!!
I think Mother thought I was there to take her home with me!
I assured her I was not and she said, "THANK God!!"
She enjoys herself when she is here but the going back and forth is tiring to her, I am sure!
Rest easy! She won't be back until May!
I do love my sister and felt better the minute I laid my eyes on her!
From her house, I drove over to my brother's!
I don't often get to visit with him and he and his wife were BOTH home!
I couldn't decide which photo to use of us together so since I see him so seldom.....
I used BOTH!!!
We all had a nice little visit along with a glass of green tea and then I was ready to head back home stopping only once more to drop off some Texas Trash to Nita and Mike! Nita wasn't home from work yet so I said 'Hi' to Mike and rolled on down to the highway as fast as I could in order to get home before the heaviest of the traffic hit! Probably should have stayed until traffic was OVER and then I could had a visit with yet another sister!!!!
Louis Dean had a productive day while I was gone!
He installed the new porch light I bought at Goodwill on Tuesday!
The Frontier people arrived in a Verizon truck and took a good look at our telephone pole.
They snapped a picture of the metal plate on the front of the pole and promised we would hear from them soon. There is NO WAY they will be able to get heavy equipment into our back yard! They may have to come at it from the neighbor behind us. You know, the one with the COTTONWOOD tree? That is a rental property so I am hoping they will do it that way. We have kept adding gazebo, storage building and walkways and decks and such that it is impossible to get anything larger than a wheelbarrow around here!!!
We celebrated Friday Night together with a glass of wine and our feet propped up on the upper deck!
We caught each other up on our day and made plans for tomorrow.
Before we came in I gave Louis Dean a good haircut!
His eyebrows grow wild and that's what motivates me to 'clean him up!'
Every single time he sits down for me to cut his hair, he ALWAYS says, "Mama sent me!!"
My recent determination to get back to at least my full term pregnancy weight has driven me to count the CALORIES in my evening wine!!!
So I will close with this cute pic.....
Happy Friday Night, Friends and Family!!!
