There I Go...Thinking Again!
Woman Sits with Her Pen in Her Mouth Whilst Thinking About What She Should Write in Her Letter
Another Saturday "I'm Thinking Post".
Wow! This week flew by!
I probably say that every week
but, really, it seems that they
do go so fast these days.
So, what am I thinking today?
1. Our world has changed so much
from the days that Walter Cronkite
was the News Man to watch.
After nearly a century...
he is gone.
2. I have enjoyed listening to NPR
as I go back and forth to get Mikey.
This week a conversation about patients
with dementia held my attention.
It reminded me of our friend Jane
who suffered with alzheimers.
One of her first real
displays of the disease was the
tendency to wander...she would "go
to church" at the Fairgrounds any day
of the week. All dressed up in her hat,
dress and prettiest bag.
I miss her.
My heart goes out to those family
members who are giving care to
loved ones whose minds have failed
them. What a huge job this is and
one that has the potential to break
one's heart daily.
3. Mikey is getting so tanned. He is
learning sooo much. This is a very good
thing. We even gained two new houseplants
4. Jonathan got to go fishing this week with
Grandma Ruth. I am very sure that she didn't
fish but it was so nice of her to take him.
I saw a stream this week that Jonathan will have
5. Chelsea plays so nicely with our younger friends.
I am so proud of her. Last night she and Master Kyle
Rabe were having a great time. It was fun to watch
her interact with him.
6. It was fun to begin planning a Christmas Walkthrough
at church last night. This will be a very fun thing to
work on and then offer to the community. Very strange
to talk about Christmas in July!
7. An auction of property in our neighborhood this
week brought a much higher price than anyone could
have imagined. I think this is a good thing...at
least for our property value.
8. Finally, I am so thankful for my dear husband.
He is so steady and diligent. He is the consistency
in our home. While I jump from adventure to adventure
he rolls with the changes and upsets in our schedules.
What a man!
Hope you had a great week...and even more
I hope that this week, upcoming, is awesome
Just a bit of what is on my brain today.
If anyone wants to join me in my quest to
"Think on Saturday" be sure to link back to this
post. If there should happen to be interest
in this I am willing use Mr. Linky and make
this a weekly Party.
