Good Saturday evening to everyone! Granni, I'm sorry to hear you have had such sadness this week with the funerals. I have always felt that funerals are important for the family and friends who remain behind...to have a "celebration" of that person's life, to share memories, and to give a sort of closure. At my mom's funeral, and many that I have been to...there are usually pictures sitting around, and maybe a video playing. Lots of times, there is extended family present, who don't get to see each other very often. And we always promise each other we will try harder to keep in touch...but life gets so busy that we may not see each other again until the next visitation or funeral...but that doesn't mean we don't care... Well, I have a confession to make...I never made it to bed or to the couch this afternoon. I decided, on the spur of the moment, to go to town and take fresh flowers to my dad, fill his bird feeders, get a few groceries and pick up Kentucky Fried Chicken for supper. Lindsey and the kids met me at our house and Den joined us soon after (he was doing a wiring job for the sheriff.) Then I helped Lindsey get the twins back home and we kept Lorraine over here. She enjoys the "one on one" that she gets, especially from Grandpa Den. I love to watch him with the grandkids; he always finds something to teach them. Tonight Lorraine was playing with a model lighthouse of my dads (complete with a fog horn and moving lights) but was having trouble understanding exactly what a lighthouse is for. So Den got on the internet and was showing her all the different kinds of lighthouses and how important they are to ships at sea... Then I rockabyed with her and she was asleep within just a few minutes. Hopefully, Lindsey and the babies will sleep well tonight too... Since I went out today, I know not to push it tomorrow. I am glad that the people in our church understand when we're not there...no "guilt trips" or anything like that. David should be home at a decent time tomorrow, so they can have some of their own family time. Wish I felt well enough to go to Amy and Clinton's church tomorrow...the pastor asked Clinton to speak. But Amy doesn't want me to overdo it, and said she would record it for me... Dar, just want you to know that we are so happy to have you here...and all the other relatively new porchies. So good to hear from lots of people, even if only once in awhile... Okay, my house is quiet now, so I will head on to bed myself...take care, everyone!
