Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  We had a relatively quiet holiday. I baked a ham, scalloped potatoes, and we took some cheesecake and pecan pie and hot rolls out to my childhood home, The Farm.

I grew up there, and now that my Dad is gone, I try to get  out there to check on my Mom, who lives there alone a lot of the time. My brother, Bret, lives there with her when he's not out in the semi.  It's a big relief to me to have him there, and my other brother, Tom, and his wife, Cindy live just a few hundred yards east of the main house.

We had a nice visit.  My sister, Linda, came down to visit from Nebraska.  She brought her grandson, Robby, with her. Tom and Cindy and their son, Dakota, came too. The original thought was to play some games with my mom, but we were relaxed while we visited around the kitchen table, and after eating all the sweets, we grew sleepy, so we decided to leave for home.

I've been fighting off a case of bronchitis this week. It always starts with a sinus infection, then moves down into my bronchioles and lungs.  If left untreated, it can go into pneumonia.  That's the last thing I need right now, with our plans to go visit our granddaughter and great granddaughter next weekend.

So I'll probably go to the doctor and get a prescription for an antibiotic either tomorrow or as soon as possible.

I saw on Facebook a count down clock for the end of the world supposedly to happen tonight. I don't believe we'll know when God is coming to take home His Believers, but I have my doubts that it is tonight. But I do believe that we should all be ready at all times.

Make sure you have repented from your sins, confess often, and ask for forgiveness, while vowing to avoid sinning again in the future.  If you need to seek forgiveness from others, do it now.  The Lord's Prayer says "Forgive us our trespasses, AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS."  God will forgive us in the same manner that we forgive those who sin against us.   Are you holding a grudge?  I try not to hold grudges.

The only one at this time that I feel I have trouble with is a certain surgeon, who made my life much more difficult than it could be, through his neglect and mismanagement of my health care.  I am trying to forgive him, but there is still just a little tinge of hard feelings, especially when I run out of the medications I will have to take for the rest of my life.  But I'm working on it.

I will be working tomorrow. I have my doubts that many will come to Story Time tomorrow, but I'm ready to take them on, if they do.  I'm keeping it simple, though.  It seems that if I go to a lot of work preparing Story Time activities, no one comes.  And no one calls to tell me they aren't coming.  I guess they figure I'm going to be there anyway, so why bother with telling me I can take a break..lol

I've whined enough for one day. I'm thankful for my husband, my dogs, my family, my house, my job, and the new red car my hubby bought for our combined Christmas gift. I feel like a princess in my shiny new red carriage.  We're still trying to figure out what all those bells and whistles do, but that's half the fun!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
