'Nother Book

So, I read a book this week.

I probably shouldn't have.

GREAT writing. Sad story.

Did not need to read a tear jerker of a story about a tragic event this week. Maybe not any week.


Three things I'm thankful for:
1. My visit with my dad was earlier in the afternoon today and he was calm and peace-filled. Mind you, he had my mom right at his side, so there was nothing for him to be anxious about. Unfortunately we got some sad news today - the brain scan indicated that my dad's brain is shrinking and the dementia is going to get worse. We will continue to lose more pieces of him, and he will be increasingly more difficult to care for. My mom has a huge job ahead of her ... if you could remember to pray for her, that would be so appreciated.

2. I took Drew to his dentist appointment this afternoon. YAY for NO CAVITIES - just like his mom. Afterwards we went to the Guildford Food Court and had Chinese Food just like the (way back) olden days. This (full tummy, familiar location, good dentist appointment, upcoming date with his girl) put him in a very good mood, resulting in a wonderful 40 minute conversation. It's the little things that make life so worthwhile for moms.

3. I'm leaving in 3 sleeps.
