On Sunday after services we made our regurlar trip to visit Mother at the nursing home. Really, I thought Mother's time had come. Unresponsive, just laying there and she looked so pitiful. A call to Hospice and they assured us this was normal for her condition. I know in my heart she will never be better, and I think I am prepared for whatever, but is one ever really prepared? Thus, my heart has not been into posting this week. She did perk up a bit and although she does not make sense when she speaks, she has begun to speak some, but her eating is declining fast. Just keep us in your prayers.
Tuesday I did go with the WMU ladies group from our church for lunch at the Historic Bullouck House in Warms Springs, Ga. Warm Springs is the home of The Little White House that belonged to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. We enjoyed a great lunch and enjoyed a few hours shopping.
Today I went with Holly and Darbee Rae shopping, had lunch in the mall and visited a few junk shops. Didn't find many goodies at all.
I have not forgotten about the goodies I got in Ohio. Most I want to show when I do my fall decorating , but this past week, I just could not bring out the decorations and get started. I did buy some mums on Friday so hopefully I will have pictures to share early in the week. Mr. P. did a little something for me that I saw while we were gone today. It will be part of my porch decor. Can't wait to share it with you ... so simple.
I have enjoyed visiting all of your blogs and seeing all the beautiful prim Fall decor you have been posting. I so want to get started with mine. So praying for a better week starting tomorrow.
So in closing, Happy Fall to all of you ( a day late) and I am asking you to be patient if I am not around so much in the next few weeks. Hopefully I will be, but who knows. Nothing last forever and all my sadness and grief will end some day in the future. Mother will soon be at rest and peace again. I am leaving you with a few pictures of Darbee Rae at the Craft fair. Looks like fall has arrived in Ga, huh?
Have I introduced you to Cuddles? Well Cuddles is Darbee Rae's shadow. And do ya know why? When Holly was trying to take the pacifier away from her, she took her to" Build a Bear" and they put the pappys in Cuddles stomach. That was the end to the dreadful thing in her mouth, but the attatchement to Cuddles well.... you can imagine. Today Cuddles is sporting a new outfit. Holly was hoping for a Halloween outfit, but Cuddles and Darbee Rae had a different outfit in mind. Even got new pink hairbows for Cuddles. Darbee Rae has new red shoes that sparkle, too.
Okay, now we are all caught up and even though it has been a very emotional week, it's a week that I am alive, I can still smile, and I have so much in my life to be thankful for. I so hope each and everyone of you can say the same thing. Until next time, I love all you guys and will talk to ya soon........
