Gratitude Meme: Day 23

Day 23: I got an email from my only sister who lives in New Mexico and she said she made me a shelf for our bathroom with dragon flys at the end of each side. My bathroom is done in dragonfly decor. I love the look of them. I can't wait to see this shelf she made, she is an excellent carpenter. I'll be sure to take some pics when it gets here. And she did it just because, not for any reason. She's so sweet and this brings me to why I"m grateful today. Sisters are wonderful and we sometimes take them for granted, but Mary and I try not to do that. We spend as much time together as we can and love each other like crazy. I'm grateful that my parents gave me a little sister to be so close to. I am five years older then she is, but I never feel it. She makes me very comfortable and I fit right into her life, as she does mine. Mary is the best.

Hugs, Patt

Hoping for good news.

My dad is 87 years old and has emphysema, but other then that, he's in pretty good shape. He's had both knees replaced and is a fiesty old coot. He's funny and everyone is crazy about him. Well, he had to have a lung x-ray yesterday for his emphysema and they found a spot on his lung. They called and got him a cat scan appointment today first thing. No results yet. We kids are all hoping that it will be just fine, but doesn't stop us from worrying. My mother sounded scared when she talked to me. It's not an easy thing to hear about your dad when he's that age. I'll keep everyone posted. I'm hoping that it's just something that was on the film. Hey, I can hope for that.
