Okay we will skip the title for now and see if something pops into my head as I write. For as much as I wrote in the past I have been very lax about writing with any kind of consistency. I can not say for sure if I will now but right this minute I will put this down on paper so to speak. I am not sure if I what I write is read by anyone but me!
Richard is sitting here in his chair asleep! I don't really mind as it gives me a chance to spend a small bit of time alone. Not physically alone but alone enough to be able to just think about what I want and not have to carry on a conversation or pay close attention to what is being said. Besides it is 12:30 in the morning and I really should go to bed but I have to much stuff in my head to try to sleep until I get some of it down! I am a lucky woman to have a man like him. He takes good care of me, he makes me laugh, he loves me beyond measure, and I love him more than life itself. I was talking with a dear friend of mine today and she was telling me that her and her boyfriend I recently been attending a small church in the town the live in Ohio. When he first started after such a long absence every prayer, every hymn, every kind word brought a flood of tears to the mans eyes. Richard did the same thing. Sitting in church with him was always hard to me as he always had tears in his eyes. He has a gentle soul and has always been a believer. I consider my self one of the luckiest women in the world.
In October Connie and Lucy will come to visit. I am so very excited that they will be here for Lucy's 49th birthday. We plan to go shopping for dresses. I have not bought a dress in more than 10 years. Wow this should be fun. What type of dress do you think I should get? I will trust the judgement of my two little sisters. They will not lead me astray!
I have this most wonderful renewed relationship with Carol, Connie and Lucy. When God closes a door he always opens a window somewhere. Well our window is a long dormant relationship and it is so lovely to have the window flung open wide to let the breeze of love and healing blow through. I wish we lived closer together but will satisfy myself with our once a year sister get together and with as many trips as we can manage otherwise. for Carol it will be hard but she is determined as we are to make the annual trek to be together. We already have a location for 2011, Sisters, Oregon. Teri says she is saving money to get there. Well time will tell if that is fact. I will do some checking to see what we can do in the area. There is shopping in Bend and Sisters as well as different places to sight see. Another thing to be excited about in my life. We should have fun cooking together, playing games, visiting and just hanging out.
Recently Erin, Isabelle and Lainey moved in with us. With her came Teia, Gracie and Daisy, 2 dogs and a cat. So far so good the cat has a bad attitude about my cat and Gracie is always chasing my cat. Poor TC, my cat, hardly ever leaves my bedroom. She is such a scaredy cat. It has been easy so far, Erin does not spend a lot of time here. Only when she has to work early in the mornings. Tommy has taken advantage only once, I sure hope it does not happen again. I do not like being mad at him for a stupid move. I really do not think Erin will be content to stay in the camper for very long. I think when she has to walk across the snow covered lawn it will get to be to much and she will move in with Challis once and for all. I suppose the only way to know for sure is to wait and see.
Well the night grows long and I am finally tired. I guess I should wake Richard up and go to bed. Live is good, God is great, and I am a lucky wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, aunt, great aunt, sister and friend. I love my life and everything about it.
