|Leaves from our balcony|
We talked on the way home from Church today of the love we have for the members of the small branch we attend. We have grown to love everyone in the branch and I do not throw out these kind of compliments easily. No pretense here!
One Sister, recently turned 70 and still works full time. She is a dialysis patient. Her husband has had a stroke and she also cares for him. He has a fondness for beautiful music and is the Choir Director. The last time the Choir sang, because of his more recent health problems, his sweet wife lead the music. She also plays the organ for Sacrament meetings and is the Primary Chorister. When we were facilitators for a finance class, she came faithfully and shared thoughtful experiences. She said the best thing she learned and changed in her life was daily scripture reading. I have never seen her when she didn't have a big smile on her face. I hugged her today and thanked her for being such a good example to me. Her long hair hangs to the middle of her back.
|That's one honking big piece of hail|
Last Sunday, we had a storm. The weather was actually pretty warm but with grey skies dripping rain. Then a fierce wind came and the hail, which were big frozen ice balls bouncing from the windows and balcony.
After 34 days in the hospital, our 2 year old grandson Alex is back home with his family. George would ask Alex what he wanted to eat and the answer was always a "hotdog". Unfortunately at that time, Alex was not eating yet, so Grandpa sent him a stuffed hotdog. Before Alex returned home and was allowed to eat a regular diet, George had a hot dog delivered to his room. We have felt gratitude as we have watched miracles unfold in the life of this family!
We have enjoyed the beautiful fall colors as the leaves have changed.
