Hello Everyone

Hi Everyone,
I did get through yesterday pretty good. I did have moments with some tears remembering her past birthdays. I decided not to go to her grave because it was raining. It is going to be hard enough going for the first time, I would like to have some decent weather, rain would only add to the sadness. I will probably go this weekend. I got a call from my brother Kevin which was very helpful, we talked a lot about mom. I wanted to call my brother Jim, but I knew where he lived with her for the past 20 years that if he did not call me that he needed time to himself. Elsie's surgery was rescheduled for March 31st. This time they are prescribing her an anti anxiety pill before she leaves the house. I had asked her the last time if they did that and she said no. I would have thought if someone is facing such a serious surgery the doctor would have given her something to relax her on the way in, but what can I say, I am not a doctor! LOL We are going to drive them in as well. Last time they drove to Weymouth to meet her brother, which was very nice of her brother and they want to keep their Independence as long as they can. Now they realize it is harder on them then they thought. Happy first day of Spring! Tonight I saw a beautiful sunset through the trees in the conservation area next to my house. I felt like I was looking at a picture. I love living here. I do get many peaceful moments which help me to renew my love of life. Take Care,

  1. Hi Jan,
    As it would have been Mom's 72nd birthday I decided to post Psalm 72.

    PS 72:1 Give the king thy judgments, O God, And thy righteousness unto the king's son.

    PS 72:2 He will judge thy people with righteousness, And thy poor with justice.

    PS 72:3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, And the hills, in righteousness.

    PS 72:4 He will judge the poor of the people, He will save the children of the needy, And will break in pieces the oppressor.

    PS 72:5 They shall fear thee while the sun endureth, And so long as the moon, throughout all generations.

    PS 72:6 He will come down like rain upon the mown grass, As showers that water the earth.

    PS 72:7 In his days shall the righteous flourish, And abundance of peace, till the moon be no more.

    PS 72:8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, And from the River unto the ends of the earth.

    PS 72:9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; And his enemies shall lick the dust.

    PS 72:10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall render tribute: The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

    PS 72:11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him; All nations shall serve him.

    PS 72:12 For he will deliver the needy when he crieth, And the poor, that hath no helper.

    PS 72:13 He will have pity on the poor and needy, And the souls of the needy he will save.

    PS 72:14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence; And precious will their blood be in his sight:

    PS 72:15 And they shall live; and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: And men shall pray for him continually; They shall bless him all the day long.

    PS 72:16 There shall be abundance of grain in the earth upon the top of the mountains; The fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: And they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

    PS 72:17 His name shall endure for ever; His name shall be continued as long as the sun: And men shall be blessed in him; All nations shall call him happy.

    PS 72:18 Blessed be Jehovah God, the God of Israel, Who only doeth wondrous things:

    PS 72:19 And blessed be his glorious name for ever; And let the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen, and Amen.

    PS 72:20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.

    Happy Easter,
