Or, maybe i've just been (not) talking to the wrong people. Today I called my girlfriend. She didn't answer, but when I was leaving my message, her sister (also my friend :) picked up. And...we talked for 1 1/2 hours. That is 90 minutes. She was supposed to be babysitting, not blabbing away to me. Hee, hee. I really enjoyed the talk, it flew by, and I could have talked longer. She was literally trying to hang-up on me, I just had too much to say! I still want to talk to her sister, it has been a long time. Maybe she'll be sitting next to the phone if I try again next week. Just waiting, hoping. Ha!
And then, when I brought the mail in, there was a package from my dear friend in Finland. A gift for Judah!
Yesterday I was mega crabby and got a little note in the mail from a pal, brightened my day right up!
There have been other beautiful cards (with supper in the envelope) in my mailbox as of late. A rotisserie chicken and a watermelon were hand delivered on Friday! Thank you, friends, for thinking of me and my family.
Judah is doing beautifully. We even made it to church on Sunday. Shirley has been keeping one eye on Mom at all times. She is a good daughter, and sister, for that matter. Mom is doing well, although I think it may take a bit of time for her to process all that has happened and what it means for her life now. She'll muscle through, although my heart aches to see her struggle.
My Mom is Dear. So, my friends, are you.
