KINGWOOD RUG SHOW ~ ~ ~
It was a fun day ~ lots of beauteous things to see and savor and friends to enjoy!
We have had some sadness in our family this week ~ my husband's brother, Paul, 62 years old, died on Tuesday of liver cancer. He has been ill since February and despite various treatments, it wasnt' meant to be. Sonny is the oldest of 8 brothers ~ now there are 6 ~ it's hard to lose your family. We've tried to be very supportive and uplifting to the family thru these months. This past Sunday, we hosted a wedding shower here for their son's fiance ~ they are getting married in two weeks ~ a bittersweet time for them now. I don't like to share the sadder parts of life on my blog ~ I like to tell you all about the fun things that might uplift you and make you laugh ~ and I have some fun things to share but I'll save it for another day.
Yesterday, Luke and Luci rode their bikes over ~ we went for ice cream in the afternoon and drove by the house of an elderly lady friend ~ she was out in the yard and I spied her little head over the top of a patio chair ~ so we whipped that car around and drove in her drive and invited her for ice cream! She said she was tired ~ getting ready for company ~ but she'd let us bring her something if we would come eat it there on her porch! So away we went ~ loaded up on sundae's, and cones and came back. We spent a lovely time with Marge ~ 84 years old, newly widowed ~ no kids or grandkids ~ and she showed the kids new baby bluebirds nesting in a birdhouse ~ and told us how she and her sisters are going to a bed and breakfast just for fun ~ and how she's giving us a big cupboard that we admired many years ago ~ but we can't have it now cause there are things in front of it ~ and when we left , Luci said "she's cute!" and Luke said 'she has the cutest haircut'! And I called her this morning and told her that at 84 years old, she's been deemed cute! She said 'you just made my day'!!!!!!!
So ~ try to 'make the day' of someone around you that could use it! I dare say our visit made our day and perked us up more than it did her!!!!! Thanks for coming by ~ talk to you soon!
