It was a lovely and relaxing (yet productive) Sunday. Hubby and I just finished up his birthday pie (couldn't let it go to waste, could we?
). Now my hubby is plucking on his ukulele and we are watching tv, and digesting.
Some tea sounds nice but too lazy to get up, will settle on the glass of water I already have.
We do not follow football (sorry, AKY) and I wouldn't even know it was Super Bowl Sunday except that someone mentioned it at work on Friday. Hubby worked on our little backyard, fixing leaking sprinkler pipes and planting some plants and palms. I caught up on some laundry and did some more organizing of closets, drawers, etc.
It was a beautiful sunny day. We planned to go for a bike ride after church but a nap and a visit to the library happened instead. My son is an avid reader, like me. I think we found a new author/series for him to read.
I also worked on my bible study homework. I joined a women's bible study group that meets Tuesday evenings. I should be doing my study right now.
But I had to come by and say "hi".
At church we saw a friend who lost his wife three months ago. I mentioned it here a while ago. A lady at church had open heart surgery and passed away suddenly eight days after surgery (?threw a clot). I think they were married 30 years. It was touching to talk with this dear soul. He is such a sweet, soft spoken person. He said he misses her every day. It broke my heart to see him sad and trying to survive without his best friend. But he is surrounded by loving, grown children, who I am sure are hurting too, but they have each other, and a church congregation of friends.
If anyone would like to pray for him it would be appreciated.
He told me he has a copy of the autopsy report and when he is up to it, he wants to get together and read it together. He doesn't understand everything it says. I told him I would be honored to help him in anyway I can. It was bitter sweet talking with our friend today but I hope our little talk (mainly listening to him) was supportive for him. It makes me think how we need to treasure those we love and remember to tell them daily we love them.
