Mandy and Piper face-timed a couple of times through the day yesterday and Alex face-timed from Tokyo, I think the calls were because they knew I was feeling really lonely after the grandbabies left. They both face-timed every single day over the holiday weekend which I know isn't easy for either of them. Mandy had family obligations at various places and just the time difference makes talking with Alex a challenge even when it's not a holiday. Oh. How I miss my kids and tears are falling as I write this, but at least we know they love us. And...we're flying to Omaha next weekend to have a late Christmas with our Omaha family. Dennis will be there for his birthday with his Mom for the first time in years, so it's all good. I'll get over the tears. I always do until I think to much about the fact that none of them are here. :-)
I forgot to show you this yummy lotion that Cheryl, ( Homespun Devotions blog), sent me last week. It smells like Peppermint and it's wonderful. Please say a prayer for Cheryl's family, especially her sister Debbie and nephew Mark, as Debbie's husband LD passed away yesterday from cancer. The family is devastated and grieving deeply during this season where everyone else seems to be so joyful.
I managed to make four matching dishcloths over the weekend for some girlfriends of mine that I'll see next week.
The sun was coming up over Mt. Spokane yesterday morning when I looked out the patio door. I thought the pink was beautiful.
Well, I'm off to finish some cleaning and then I need to knit on a scarf for a co-worker of Dennis. I'm trying to find a nice easy one that will go fast!
I hope you're all having some relaxing time after all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday. I'll be back soon and popping around to visit your blogs too.
Suddenly a great company of the Heavenly Host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peach to those on whom His favor rests."
