What a beautiful day it is here in the country outside of Amite, Louisiana!
This morning the folks across the street where the cows live were out there with big machinery crushing a pile of dead trees and pushing more dead trees into the pile to crush. The pile is a good 500 feet across the road from us. I had to zoom in a lot to get this picture.
Samson and I decided to grab a cup of coffee and sit out on the front porch enjoying seeing the work going on over there. They must be finished because the cows have now come back to graze there.
The weather is absolutely beautiful with a light breeze on the porch. Samson took his place on my lap and watched the work closely….! It’s an hour later and they are still working. I love being able to see the beautiful trees and the cows across the street while sitting on the front porch. Roy and I sat there every morning drinking our coffee and visiting. I miss that but life is different now.
Most of my days are good days. I do talk to Roy often and miss so much of what he contributed to our life. God continues to keep his big arms wrapped around me giving me comfort.
He’s sent some wonderful people my way and I am so thankful for them.
Cindy Vernon lives nearby and worked at Southeastern in a different department but we kinda made friends then. Since we’re both retired and she lives close by and we’ve got things in common we’ve become real friends. She contacted me on Wednesday about joining her in going to Franklinton, a nearby town, on Thursday to shop and have lunch. I was so excited to get to do that and actually woke up an hour before my alarm was to go off! Some people don’t care for Dirt Cheap, a local store, but I enjoy walking up and down the aisles, digging through things to find goodies at a dirt-cheap price. We ate at Sonic which was fun too! Thanks, Cindy for getting out of the house and having fun!
This is my new fruit bowl I got at Dirt Cheap for only $9. Isn’t it pretty!
Yesterday, I also got a call from a young lady at church saying she and two other young ladies want to come to help me here and visit. They will be bringing two sons to help with some things outside. There are lots of things outside that ya’ll know Chip and I’ve tried to keep up with and that will be a big blessing. More on that when these wonderful folks come to help. I am really looking forward to getting to know these two young ladies and the sons. They are all relatively new to Trinity which makes it even more amazing
So I hope you can see that God is putting people in my life at a time I need them most. He knows exactly what I need to get me through this. If you don’t a relationship with God as your Lord and Savior I would love to share more about what He’s done in my life since I accepted him as my Lord and Savior as a young girl.
Thank ya’ll for allowing me into your life through my blog. It continues to help me a lot in this grief journey. The journal that my friend Cindy LeBlanc gave me has become such an important part in me getting my personal grief feelings out onto paper. As always Cindy you are the bomb and I love ya’ girl!
Wow, I planned to write something real short but look at how all the words just tumble out.
It’s time to get out of here and makes some progress on my To Do List! Later folks!
