Some pictures of my family at the Beach. I had a great time. Lots of sun, sand, good eats and even a little wine. The little gazebo you see beside two of my girls (daughter and daughter-in-law) was my station when I sat on the beach. I'm not one to sit and bake in the sun, although I enjoy the ambience of it all. By the way, those two girls are always making me laugh at their antics. Some of the things they've got up to since they met, you wouldn't believe!
It's taken me a few weeks to get back into the ol' routine. It's been a busy time and although I wanted to start posting, my brain wasn't co-operating. I'm still processing some of the events concerning two of my friends.
My 'adopted' family is still going through some difficult times, but Mom is back home and we all want her to get better. I was there at their home again, helping to take care of the children and the house this past week. My dearest wish is that soon the family will be whole and they won't need me as much. I will still be involved, as a surrogate G'ma, and that will be fine for me.
The friend that got ill while we were in Virginia is now back home and has 9 hours a day of home care set up, courtesy of our mutual friend. Mutual friend has worked very hard and taken time away from her family and other obligations to help her, as have I. I'm in a dilemma with the friend who is ill, because of her attitude and actions regarding her recuperation. It's been almost 4 months and I am, truthfully, drained by the demands she puts on our friendship. I've pulled away a bit so that I can get some perspective on the situation. I'm sure it will get resolved with time, patience and prayer.
Bye for now, keep well. <3
