Somebody Did Some Prayin'

and that's for SURE!
After dropping of Lil R at daycare, without a hitch, I drove through Bojangles and got mammaw a sausage biscuit and got me a country ham biscuit. I also got us both a Mt. Dew and headed towards her house. I knew if I was fixin' to give her a bath that I'd need all the energy and gumption that I could muster up!
We enjoyed our biscuits and believe it or not, she went straight into the bathroom and let me help her with her bath.
She has to sit on the shower chair thing and I help wash her hair and her back and her legs. She does the washing on her front and "middle". Even if she's almost 82, she still has her pride! hee hee
Soon after getting her ready, which included blow-drying her hair and curling it with the curling iron, daddy arrived.
We got her situated in the new minivan and headed to the doctor's office. Her appointment was at 10:00 and we got there at 9:45. We ended up going into a room at 9:55 and things went great. Her doctor said that she gets the "Wound of the Day" award. He kept going on and on about how she was healing so well. As we pulled out of the parking lot, the clock in my van said 10:50. We drove her around for an hour. She has been wanting to "take a ride" and go see:
*the cemetary where her parents are buried
*The cemetary where my pappaw, her husband, is buried
*Her old home place (Which is still standing, by the way)
*Her inherited land, near the home place
We drove all over the place and took the scenic route. It was so nice--just me, mammaw, and daddy.
After we got her home and got her some lunch, me and daddy made plans in the carport to go eat lunch.
I needed to go pick something up from here at The Doublewide before heading back to town. I told daddy that I'd meet him for lunch. When I came down the back steps, there he was. He was sitting in his little Mazda pick-up, smoking his Marlboro, and waiting on me.
I was tickled to death that he did that. I got to ride with my daddy to town and eat lunch with him. Then he drove me back home. I so enjoyed spending time with him and mammaw, but especially spending time with him at lunch.
I am fighting an urge to blog about my daddy, but I'll save that for June--sometime near Father's Day. My heart is so full right now and I want to savor it awhile.
After coming back home, I laid down on the couch, turned the TV to QVC, and woke up about thirty minutes later with DROOL everywhere! I was pooped! I swiped my mouth, rolled over on my side, and slept for another hour. Thank ya Jesus!
After teaching a piano lesson and then going to church, and then getting mammaw ready for bed, I'm finally ready to turn in myself.
Thanks for your prayers this morning. I know y'all were praying because things went so smoothly and I was calm and had an enormous peaceful feelin'!
Have a great day today!

Did you know that sometimes I get on your blog for no other reason than just to listen to your jukebox?????

Don't you just love to see God in all of the little things in life. He's easy to see in HUGE situations..but smaller things like giving your grandmother a bath, riding around in the van..God is just good.

Glad things went well. The cemetary riding makes me smile. My aunt used to go to the cemetary every single afternoon and often took me with her...never missed a one unless she was sick. As a kid, I thought that it was a perfectly normal activity.
