***HUGS***and prayers. Yes it does get better....and I thank God for it.. I am content.

"To Have and to Hold..."

You had him for 28 years...

For 25 I held Miss Emily and before that Miss Helen for seven years...

Today I am going to throw Miss Emily's beloved Border Collie in my truck and go over to the Island to help Miss MaryAnn relocate her businesss... she held that old friend & neighbor of mine for 30 years...

It seems like we never get to hold the ones we love long enough- something always gets in the way... but like the chorus line in "The Other Man's Grass is Always Greener" goes,

"...just be thankful for what you've got..."

Prayers all is going well with Miss Mary Ann's move.

Thankful For What I Have

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
