More Catching up
When we were living in a small house with only one bathroom and I had three girls, and two boys all getting ready for school at the same time. The boys would get impatient waiting for the girls to get out of the bathroom, and would go out on the back porch and you guessed it. Pee off the edge of the porch. Of course I didn't know about it, but I can't blame them as there is nothing worse than having to hold it in.
BAD NEWS: Well on November 11, my granddaughter's father in law passed away. He had stomach cancer, and I am not sure exactly when he was diagnosed with it, but it has only been a few months. He quit his Chemo and they had hospice come in to the home to take care of him. He was only 52 years old, and in my opinion was way too young to die, but God doesn't take just old people. I know Jason and Renee will miss him as they spent a lot of time with him. Jason and his Dad played guitars together, watched football games, and family dinners were shared too. When we had Thanksgiving last year with Jason & Renee, Rick was there along with his family, and never would I have imagined that I would be going to his funeral almost a year later. My heart and prayers are with the family.
MORE NEWS: I called and talked to my cousin Penny a few days ago, as I hadn't heard anything about BJ who I thought had been diagnosed with cancer also. He is the 22 year old cousin I blogged about a while back. Penny told me the doctors diagnosed him with Mono, however Penny still isn't quite comfortable with that diagnoses. I think he should still be checked out by an oncologist as he was referred to one. I guess time will tell, and I hope and pray that Mono is what he does have.
Today was our Primary Children's program at church. It was so cute watching the kids sing, and say their parts. It brought back a lot of memories of when I was in the Primary and was President for quite a few years, so I was in charge of these programs, and today it made me appreciate those primary workers who had to work with the kids to put on this program, as I know how much work goes into them.
As I was sitting there I was watching a mother sitting in front of me scratching her son's back. It brought back memories of my son Garen, the estranged one, when he was small. He would lay over in my lap and ask me to tickle his back, and arms. It brought tears to my eyes. Never then would I have guessed that he would not be in my life in the future. Sad times. I saw a picture of Garen's son Zach in our little paper and it was like looking at Garen. I couldn't believe how much he has changed in his looks. I never used to think he looked like his Dad. I saw a picture of Mackenzey that Sierra took at a Homecoming parade and I didn't even recognize her. I could pass my grand kids on the street and not even know them. How sad is that!!!!
