This and That

My daughter gave me this beautiful glass globe a few years ago.  Look closely.  Can you tell that it is broken on the top.  Something fell on it during one of the storms.  It still stands in the middle of those weeds that bloom blue, and it is still one of my favorite things.

This week has passed quickly.  My daughter sent me a package.  Books !!  I spent the last couple of days reading.  One was When I Am An Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple and the another was Bryson City Seasons by Walt Larimore, M.D.  The one  by the doctor from Bryson City was extremely interesting to me.  My daughter once lived in Bryson City and she might have known who some of the people were in the stories. I didn't, but found the story of the Cherokee baby being born fasinating. I really enjoyed the map of the town in the front of the book.  I imagined I could find the house that my daughter lived in. I do know that I enjoyed visiting Bryson City and will always have fond memories of the area.

Also this week, my husband's younger brother had four stints put in to open some blockages.  We visited him today and he says he's fine.   Thank You LORD !!

The story about the Cherokee baby being born was my favorite!! (how about the dead man standing??) Anyway, the one about the baby...I was holding my breath through that one....whew!! And I had read that one just before Chandler was born!!! It reminds us that every, EVERY birth is a true miracle of God!!

ps...I do know some of the people in the book. Louise, queen of the ER, is sister to one of my former CAP patients. I enjoyed knowing her!

Hello friend! I'm stopping and and for once have time to chat! I love the globe, broken or not! Kinda makes me want to do some paper art or something creative! The books sounded really interesting. I may have to add them to the "maybe list" for next time I get a Nook gift card!
