On Monday it was, as my momma said, "A very trying day". Poor Momma, it started at 2:08 in the morning and did not end until 7:30pm. I won't "bore" you with details but just know it was trying. As momma and I drove home after she picked me up from Bert's place I could tell she was feeling drained. She knew when we got home she had stuff to do, church stuff, puss it snowed almost a foot so there was the big driveway to shovel, oh and let me not forget the insurance nightmare she had to deal with and fix before midnight and it went on and on all the stuff that still needed to be done. Oh I tried to comfort her and she smiled at me several times on the way home, but still. BUT when we began to pull into the drive way what did we see? Someone had cleared our big driveway of all that snow, ALL OF IT! Then went we walk to the back door that same sweet soul had cleared out patio and wrote a sweet note in the snow dust on the patio about how much they loved my momma and that they also left some bean soup for her just inside the door. As my momma says, she has the most beautiful friends in the world. Then she grabbed the snow shovel to clear the sidewalk to the front door and what should she find? A package all the way from South Carolina for her. Who could it be from, she could not recall knowing anyone who lived there. When she opened it it was from someone who loved my angel brother Goose, someone who followed this blog. Want to see what was in the box?
It was a beautiful picture of my brother Goose being held by an angel.
Here is a close up.
Momma's eyes teared up and you know what? All the yuk stuff of a very long day just melted away. Oh sure all that yuk stuff was still lingering around but at that moment and for moments after that it all didn't matter. Momma says she is overwhelming blessed to have such wonderfully beautiful friends who live near us and love us so much and beautiful friends far away that we have never met who make this life we live so beautiful.Blessings,
