233–Christmas with Ms. Charlsie

122110 (1)

This evening David and I went to visit Ms. Charlsie.  He had her groceries (she likes Dave to buy her groceries – reckon that has to do with my lack of cooking – especially country cooking?) and I had her dog food and some medications (she likes me to get her non-grocery items).  I also needed to sort her meds.  Since we’ll be gone for Christmas we took her gift to her this evening.

The Christmas season is usually a very lonely and difficult time for her.  She misses Hardy so much.  This year, she has a get-together on Christmas day with her brother, sister and niece.  I am THRILLED for her about that.

She is such a joy to us.  We’re so thankful for the 20 years we’ve had with her and pray for many more!

I also made a trip up to my Mom and Dad’s before going to Charlsie’s… since I won’t see them at Christmas.  My first Christmas away from my momma.  Kind of sad about that… but oh, I cannot wait to see the Ks!
