Home again......

I am back home tonight after staying a few days with my parents. Its been a sad week with my uncle's passing and seeing my daddy grieve for his brother. Each day will be easier for him. We have had a cold front move into our neck of the woods and it will be 38 by morning. That is quite a bit cooler than normal for us! It is fine with me..I like the cooler temps. I have propane now,and another hot water heater.  My son was able to find a nice one second hand for a whole lot less money than brand new. He bought it and installed it as well.  So my home will be all cosy again :) My kiddos are a blessing to me...I am so thankful for them. I came home to a nice chatty letter from a dear pen pal.....time for me to sit down and write her back. Do you still write letters the old fashion way? I love writing letters by hand...there was a time...I didn't have a phone and hand written letters were my way of communicating with friends and family who lived a good distance from me. I hear tell that someday hand written letters could become obsolete. I do hope that doesn't ever happen. Well,I hope you all have a nice weekend. Blessings,Shelley

I am sorry to learn of your uncle's passing. Every time I hear someone mention about one passing, I can't help but think about when my father passed in Oct. 2006. It's hard when someone you love dies, truly hard. I pray that our Lord will comfort your father with His love.

I also like to write letters by hand as you already know (BTW, thank you for your letter and card :). If letter writing ever became obsolete, I would be quite sad, indeed!

Blessings to you! :)
