~It seems that I am always trying to catch up~

Thanksgiving at Mothers, her home was so festive, she loves Christmas and combines it with Thanksgiving! My Dad once asked my Mother why she didn't give Thanksgiving a chance, she told him she did celebrate Thanksgiving, because she was thankful for Christmas!~wink~

My two sisters with my Mom!


Almost ready!


God ordained the family first, so it must be very important to Him! Mother welcoming us all!


It's so hard to get her to sit as she is always serving others!


Many have asked about my Mom, she is doing so well! Endless energy!She is such a Godly example to all of us!


We call her the "Energizer Bunny"!


After lunch when the kitchen was cleaned, and  almost everyone had left except my sister, Mary, her Dh, Mr P. and I! (actually it had been several hours,) as Mother asked if we wanted to stay and have  leftovers, of course we did. One of the things we enjoy doing in our family is to linger at the table  after a meal! Do you?

As we were talking Mother shared two of her favorite Bible scriptures, Psalm chapters 3&4, she says she prays these everyday! Someone just happened to ask her how many times she had read the Bible through, her matter of fact (no brag) reply was "this year I have read it through twice and I am now over half/way the third time!" I thought "I certainly can't say that!" though I wish I could, once again she has set the bar high for me!~smile~I am now challenged to read my Bible more!

Update on my second surgery~
Surgery was Dec. 9th, I am doing exceptionally well, as I still have the same wonderful caregiver! I cannot find the right words to say how thankful I am to be able to see clearly once again(it has been years)! I so regret putting off visiting my eye Dr, please have your vision checked regularly! I am looking forward to next week when I can resume my normal routine, (whatever that is) ~smile~

Love from the farmhouse,
Sue
