Time spent with a friend is time well spent

Today, I spent time with my Aunt Dot, my mom’s sister. It was her birthday. She turned seventy-six.

What an amazing woman. What a fun time we had shopping at the Dollar Tree for greeting cards and the grocery store for watermelons that were on sale. Then we went to Chick-fil-a for a peach milkshake. If you hear me complaining about my waistline, now you’ll know why. Yum!

Anyway, we didn’t really do much of anything. We walked around her house looking at pictures of our ancestors which hung on the wall in lovely frames. We chatted about family and the importance of spending time with them and praying for them. What a wonderful, relaxing day just to be in the presence of such a graceful, Godly woman who mirrors the Proverbs 31 woman and the Titus woman. I hope to grow more like her as I age.

    Sherri:

    Don’t know who is who in the picture of the four ladies, but the one on the right where there are two together looks much like you and Kayla. Is this your mom or one of her other sisters?

    I love your little thoughts thingie. I enjoy reading it. It’s good to hear some encouraging news in these hard times we’re in now. Keep writing!

    Love you,
    Phyllis

      Phyllis, the one on the right is Aunt Dot. The one on the left is Mom. People always say I look like Dot. Such a precious lady! Thanks for the encouragement. Love you!
