Happy Thursday. Just a little small talk today. Some thoughts and a sweet story for you.
Here it is December, and we are supposed to maybe get to 60* today! WOW. Loving it.
I know some of us all like a lot of the old classic holiday shows. I did notice the original Walton's show is on You Tube. It came on cable the day before Thanksgiving, and I missed it. This has the original kids but different parents. I do believe it was the first. The Walton's Christmas movie - The Homecoming. I always like this particular show - as it showed so much about the simplicity and love that prevailed back in the time of the depression. Family was all important and gifts (if any) were simple and cherished.
Just thought I would let you know you can find on You Tube.
Sometimes we all need little reminders that life is still wonderful - even when simple.
Part of living room. Can you tell where Coogy lays on the back of couch?!! That back cushion is lower than the other! He loves to lay there and look outside if not on the library table. He can see a bird feeder on the porch and if the door isn't open - this is "kitty TV"! (see my little 'leg' lamp?) LOL
Just a couple updates:
Our "C" patients are doing well. Both are recovering well. As a matter of fact, she is full of p*ss and vinegar - on a cleaning binge!!! LOL
Sis in now in rehab. She is having a lot of pain but hanging in there. Not sure why there will be no surgery - I guess it is that kind of break. She is madder than a hornet at herself. She is fretting about Christmas get togethers and we keep telling it doesn't matter when - just that we can! So,
sibling Christmas will be later than normal again this year. That is OK - as long as we have each other.
My sweet story to share with you.
You have all prayed for our little pea pods Adi and Remi (so appreciated). They are doing pretty good. Of course, they still have medical issues and probably always will - but little Adi is truly thriving now. She is gaining weight and even has a little double chin now!!! Come to find out, the area hospitals were all giving her the wrong nutrition and meds. She almost died - and now that she is on the correct stuff - she is doing so well. No doubts here that God directed those hands of doctors and nurses. Sadly, because of the problems with that original feed - she had 2 very un-necessary surgeries that most likely can't be reversed! BUT, we have them and they are growing, thriving and playing like crazy!!
Remi is a little over 2 and she talks up a storm. EVERY single night, she and her Poppa (my nephew who is her grandpa) have to Skype with my brother & sister in-law. She loves that and insists that she get to talk to Papaw every night. At the end of each 'visit' my brother says - "well I guess that is it" and she says "PRAY PAPAW".
She folds her little hands and holds them close to her face and closes her eyes and Papaw says a prayer for everyone. At Amen - she claps and smiles and giggles and says Amen herself. She gets so excited about it. She loves when Papaw prays with her!!!!
Is that not the sweetest thing? I guess she has to say prayers before going to sleep as well. Mommy or Daddy or Poppa helps her.
I love that she and her sister are being brought up in such a loving and caring family. God knows who His little soldiers are.
I thought I would share that little story as it is just so sweet. There is good and wonder in the world, despite what we keep seeing and hearing. The Lord works in mysterious ways we will never understand. He has reasons for everything. Someday we will know.
I hope you all have a great balance to your week, and I will be back Sunday!
Stay well my friends!
