Birthday #1

Wheeew, another Monday!

Now this is the great report for the day...this evening, 6:48 pm....weather:

     67      Sunny with pretty clouds.

The weather has been so very nice all day.


I went to school, for a short time, to prepare for a  substitute for the day.  Then I left to attend a funeral for my friend's husband.

Now I know that does not sound great to many people, but since he was a great man, and so many people loved him...it was extremely pleasant to hear about his life and the many people he helped.  I am sad to see him go, and sadder yet for my friend to be widowed for the second time in her short life.  I went to be supportive of her as well.

Since I feel God knows each of his children,  we, each, are being considered and life will resolve itself of the harshness.   
Since I believe in Heaven, I have a view that this life does not end.   We will be able to comprehend the why's of life later, and gain understanding of it.  Otherwise, I could become discouraged.

Since a group of us were together for the funeral...we then went to lunch...and....Do Not Tell Anyone....but my birthday is coming soon.

 I had a nice surprise, when I attempted to pay for my lunch, suddenly, my ticket disappeared and lunch became a surprise treat....no trick.

 Monday....I'm glad you were here today.

Merry  friendships, (hang onto them as long as you can),  Mary

  3. Sorry for your loss. I think being a believer makes these times a *little* easier to bear, knowing there is a future home in heaven. Those shrimp tacos look divine! Happy birthday!
