I’m thankful for so many things and one of them is that July is passed. We’ve had some hot days in August but also some good appreciated rainfall. I’m also thankful for the tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers and other garden goodies for those who enjoy sharing.
Charlie brought nice cucumbers several times and he left Hester cucumbers.
Karen came this week bringing a dozen nice brown eggs produced by Greg’s pets. He enjoys his hens and I enjoy their eggs.
My house keeper, or rather aid as they are called, Vonda, has been sick this week. I surely wish better health for her. I have missed her very much and not just for the work she does, but especially for the moral support and friendship.
I certainly enjoyed reading the Arno items and of Helen’s visit in Tahlaquah with my relatives. Dee Bell married, my Dad, Lige Degase’s first cousin. Dee Bell and his daughter have both preached good sermons at Clark church on different occasions. We loved their visits and our family has been made very welcome in all our relatives’ home when any of us went there. Hope to see some at our Degase reunion on Saturday of Labor Day, the 3rd.
Ruth took me to Ava for errands and shopping Wednesday. We visited all the way there and all the way back.
I visited with my sister, Jean, this Friday. She plans on coming and getting me for club this coming Wednesday. I appreciate anyone patient enough to help me in transporting me anywhere. Years sure take their toll but life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans. I have learned patience and I am probably over-careful but I have slowed down. I realize that I tried to be nice to people on my way up, because I really have needed them on the way down, and not because I planned on needing them for I never envisioned this.
I’ll finish writing this Monday morning. Burr came by and visited for a good start to my morning.
Jean called with her news to tell me that John and Martha Lee, Jim’s sister, came by Saturday evening bringing supper. They had been close, having gone to an auction. For dinner Sunday they had Danny and Jamie and Rusty and Autumn.
We had good song service yesterday and Dyanna brought a good sermon. The boys, Joseph, Devin and James are so appreciated for their talent and for sharing with us. Mark would be so very proud of them. Ruth and Jamie and Burr sang a very pretty song which went along with our lesson of the virgin birth entitled “who would have believed”.
We are studying from the Bible and starting in the New Testament.
I came home from church to a good plate of food left me by Kasey and Terry. I had got up too late for breakfast and so the food was doubly delicious.
I’ll sign off this week with a bit of advice that I think Honest Abe gave us.
Do what you can, with what you have where you are, and what ever you are, be a good one.
