Gray or Grey...what's the diff?

For the past two weeks Mom has stayed with us. It was a treat to have her here and get a 'good dose' of her before she moved to California. AND we had a wonderful visit with my sister, Marcia, aka 'Bone' and her son, (our nephew!) Justin last week. They were lots of fun. Justin was pretty sick for the first few days of his visit. We had to take him to our doc and get him an antibiotic! Hey, Jut, hope you are completely recovered now! All three of our guests flew out early Sunday morning and we are missing them. Our house is not large, but it seems big and hollow and empty!

The weather is no help...our normal high temp this time of year is in the mid-70's. Today we topped out at a chilly 52 degrees with wind and rain. Overcast and dark. Bleah.

Bree and I shopped this morning for some fabric to make some friends some blankets (one for a baby shower, one for a grad present) and we could not get anyone to help us at Walmart. We rang and rang the little bell...no help arrived. I went next door to the photo department and asked the cranky photo dude to call for assistance. He did - I think he whispered it into the p.a. system. Of course, no one but us heard the call for help, so no one came. I should have pursued someone else for help, but I just did not have the energy...

Good thing we don't have much appealing junk food (we have some yucky ice cream and some dried out cookies leftover from Bree's graduation party!) around here, or I'd be chowing.

I'm missing my mom, missing Bone and Jut and not appreciating this stinking weather. I am in a funk. I need to look to where my Help comes from: to the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Lord, please be the lifter of my head.

The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; He is their stronghold in time of trouble. The LORD helps them and delivers them; He delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in Him.
