That is scary but I am glad she is feeling better. I am glad you are able to help take care of her. I will continue praying!

Goodnight Everyone!!!!
I hope you have the runway cleared for Seawaters to land her jet!
Be safe out there!

I was sleeping so sound this morning that I didn't hear our granddaughter get here. Wayne let her in and watched her for me. He didn't wake me to let me know she was here, he just let me sleep! I am glad he did because I had a restless night. Now she fell asleep! She has been over all week and has not taken a nap so I guess it caught up with her.

I haven't caught up on all the post on here but will later. I have a lot to do this morning.

Have a great day everyone!

Thinking of you, sweet Solice. In English, we have the word "solace," which means comfort or consolation in a time of distress or sadness. I'll bet that describes you. May you bring comfort to others in your family and may you receive the same comfort in return.
