As you know my computer is in the hospital. :( I am using my daughter-in-law's for just a moment to check e-mail and fit in a bit of the blogging addiction. This is my last week to babysit with my sweet new grandson; on Friday I will be going home after a 2 1/2 month stay here in this city where my son and his family live.
First, just let me say that my daughter-in-law is a saint. I shall be nominating her for this position as soon as I figure out how you do that. I've talked to God already and He agrees with me. That has led me to wonder how many others I know who need to be nominated for sainthood and how many I might be overlooking. Here are some I thought of:
1. Two different neighbors of my son's who walk their dogs each day, on a leash, with pooper scooper in hand. Bless you both.
2. The young woman at AT&T who has patiently answered a million questions I've asked since switching cell phones even when they were obviously things I could have read the instruction book for. Thank you for recognizing that I learn better when shown.
3. The young man who "lives" next door to me in the camper park and who replaced the electrical plug on the outside connection when my electricity went off (he's an electrician so he knew what he was doing, as opposed to me who knows nothing!) Bless you for taking care of this neighbor who probably seems ancient to you in your youth.
4. My dear friend and neighbor, Connie, who keeps saying, "I miss you. Come home." Bless you for making feel so loved.
5. My cousin Carol's husband, Keith, who made the effort it took for the two of us to spend time together. Carol doesn't drive on the highway alone so Keith drove her the two hours here and then came back to get her a couple of days later. Thank you for the wonderful conversations and memory boost that you gifted me with.
6. The owner of the Asian restaurant where I've met friends for lunch several times and who keeps small plush toys to give to the babies who visit there. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
I could go on but my time is limited so I'll stop now. But not without saying that I hope I not only am thankful for people who touch my life, but that I remember to tell them!
