In the Spirit

This was going to be
the first night of two away...

doesn't sound like
much, I know...

it's been 10 years
or more
since I've been able to
be away...

Chester's health was
always too iffy for
me to leave him...

when planning my
vacation days at work this
I chose this weekend
so I could shop
in Holmes County

then go to the
In the Spirit of Friends

at Malabar Farms
meet some
online friends
with all the help
Mom and Dad
have needed this week

I'm thankful
I had the time
to help them...

today was Dad's
home assessment
we're hoping to hear
he can go home
tomorrow morning!

So, in the spirit
of friendship
I'm having a mystery giveaway
for my
sign up on this post
until 2 PM
let me know if

Oh Kelley - I'm so sorry you aren't going to be able to get to the shows - I can well image how much you were looking forward to them! But there is next year and your Dad and Mom are here now! I understand how life gets in the way!

Hopefully Melly and Olivia can give you some snuggles to make you feel better about it!

Kelley,I sure hope your dad can make it home tomorrow. I'm sure both your mom and dad will be thrilled to pieces. And you are such a good daughter to put their needs first. I'm sure you will get a little fun time in stitching, punching or hooking.
