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!
