Actually, we have had three dark and story nights in a row. Another series of storms came through our area last night about 8 with more strong winds and more rain.
This morning we woke to hazy skies and a moistness in the air like we have not had in many weeks. And do you see what I see?
Some of the grass is coming back, nice and green once again. We still have a long ways to go. Parts of our state are still brown and look horrible, a lot of crops are lost causes for this year and the effects of this drought that has hit over 50% of our country will be felt for a long time. I dread food costs this next year.
But I do have some good news!! Mom went home from the hospital yesterday. She said she weighed 110 pounds now and I could tell from the way she was talking that she felt better. She is still very weak and tires easily, but getting her back to her own bed and familiar surroundings is a great step for her. And it came with perfect timing. Yesterday was Mom’s and Dad’s 49th wedding anniversary. What a wonderful anniversary gift for them.
Mom asked me to ask you to keep the prayers coming. They mean so much to her and she believes they are what is keeping her going and getting stronger. Thank you for all the prayers and good thoughts you are sending her way.
