Yesterday, I had a surprise or rather many. A knock at the patio stormdoor and I told the lady to come in and she looked like someone I ought to know, and she said, "Hi! Aunt Betty, it's Valerie." behind her was Gailyn her husband and behind him my precious sister in law Cleora. I haven't seen her since Dec. 31st of 2001 after my sister in law's funeral. . . John's mother. Valerie and Gailyn have been here since then as he has business that brings them to Colorado every once in a while.
They went out to the nursing home to visit John, and Jim and Chris were there, plus Jeremiah came after work to be with his dad. I am so thankful that the family came, as this is a hard time for us here with John's soon demise, or at least unless God preforms a miracle. John, realizes that his time is short and he was singing "Happy" yesterday, ate a little bit and was wanting more oxygen. I am not going out, I want to remember the last time I was there, it will be a month tomorrow as it was his 59th birthday. It was a happy time, with him and a few friends and J.J. and I, but I told J. J. that it may be his last birthday, and I wanted it to be a happy one for him.
I know that I am thankful for the time that I have had with this precious nephew of mine, and would do it all over again if I had the chance, same with his brother. They are loved a lot by me and many others. I told Chris last night when she called to tell me that they were headed back to Cheyenne for the night, that they were both so special and never forget that Jim and she were loved a lot by me.
So, as the day wears on, and I need to get busy, I want to wish each of you a very blessed weekend and to the Keepers of the Sabbath Day. . . have a very.
