Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

In case you see a string around my finger

I've reverted back to my childhood days, when my Sunday School teacher would tie a string around my finger to help me remember to remember my Golden Text. Anybody remember those days? lol!!!

I'm considering the string around my finger thing.

Really.

The sticky notes, memo boards, text messages, etc. just are not cutting it. Thing is.... I remember at the most inopportune time....like say 2 AM.....after the fact!

Now, if I can figure out how to remember why I'm wearing the string...I'll be in business. lol!

Enough of all that.

Mom is on the mend. Or at least she says she is. Still very weak, but I can see some improvement. Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers. I'm here to testify that I serve a living God who blesses me more than I deserve! And I will never forget the day I accepted Him as my Saviour! I know without a doubt that even in all my forgetfulness, that will never leave my mind. Mawmaw, with dementia, can remember all the gospel songs, word for word, and can always say how thankful she is to God for His many blessings on her. She gave sister C and I some advice this past Sunday, which I'll end with.....

"When you give with a giving heart, that makes it all the more special."

Isn't that amazing how God restores the memory in those precious things in your Mawmaw!

Glad to hear your Mom is on the mend too! Lots to be thankful for this Mother's Day weekend huh?

Hope that little string helps. I don't think I ever did that. Hmm?

Oh yeah. The whole string around the finger. I need a rope not a string.

As you know my grandmother has the same thing and at times she seems so far away with the silly talk and then all a sudden she will seem herself and say something so precious like that.....I thank God for those little times you can see her as she used to be.
