We wake up and there is snow on the ground. Even I, as a lover of snow, has had enough.
As the boys drove to school, The Girls walked. Penny was thrilled to have Grandpa and Grandma come to her school and see her performance. First some playing on the playground. I was introduced to many of Penny's friends. To one friend she said, "This is my grandma, her name is Penny. I was named after her."
My heart was so full that she introduced me that way. Of course her little friend said to me, "Hi Penny!" Such a treat.
The school has this program thing down to a science. The early program is just for the little ones. You don't have to sit through the whole program of all the classes, like in my Catholic school days.
It was like penance for me back then, and later for my kids...Kids would faint every year standing on the risers.
Anyway, this was great, the song was awesome. Penny kept the beat and showed off some of her great dance moves. She also managed to wave at us, and smile. It was tremendous.
No bias whatsoever. ;-)
Then our week turned sad and somber. On this wintry Monday morning, my thoughts are for my friend Jean who had her first chemo last week, and then things got scary. To make a long story short, Jean is now in intensive care. So many problems arose and she was so weak, she was rushed to the hospital.
All these complications are frightening. All she asks is for prayers. If you are so inclined, please remember my friend Jean in your prayers.
I light a candle as a constant prayer, and hope for healing and comfort for a wonderful, kind, generous and thoughtful woman. Dear Lord, this girl needs a break! Amen.
Thank you for stopping by and for your kindness.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
