Maybe the roads are iced up by the rain we were getting when the temperature dropped, because there sure isn't enough snow to cancel school. Anyhow, the granddaughters will likely be over sometime today, which means I may plan to fix something a little different than the salad I was planning for me and Cliff for our noon-time dinner.
Maybe tuna-noodle casserole?
Here's something of interest: One of the wonderful people I've met on the Internet lives in Smyrna, Tennessee. We've met face to face many times, and I've visited in her home before. As much as I despise talking on the telephone, I've always loved getting phone calls from Virginia; we've been known to chat for an hour!
Somehow time slipped by, and we hadn't talked in months. Nor had we e-mailed one another.
For some reason, right after my quiet time on Monday morning, Jen came to mind. The feeling was very persistent that something was wrong; it even crossed my mind that my friend could die and I wouldn't know it, no better than I've kept in touch. So I sent an email, which simply said this:
"For some reason, you've been on my mind lately. Is everything OK with you?"
For three days there was no answer, which really concerned me. Then this morning I got my answer from Virginia; here's what she had to say:
"Wow !!!!! What a 'God thing' that you should feel this way right now
!!!!!! My only Sister was attacked by some kind of rare cancer
that spread all over immediately and she died Monday and today we had her her
funeral.......... It was all so sudden and sooooo sad................
Thanks so much.......Jen"
I have to tell you, this humbles me. I'm so glad I've gotten back to my morning quiet-time. It seems to have been my best resolution ever.
There are others of my old chat-room gang that I think of often, but haven't heard from. Maybe I had better get in touch!
