A Fabulous Blessing! 5 Weeks and 1 Day...

Last night, I had another one of those nights when I just could not sleep.

Knowing that I had work to do in the morning (like normal) and instead of wasting my awake-in-the-middle-of-the-night time, I got my computer work done. Sent a fax, also. It was a good thing, because after updating on Facebook (FB) about 5:00 am, I shut my computer down, about 5:15 am. Hopefully, I was sleeping by 5:30 am, but I really can't say, for sure.

Morning came early and tired as I was, I got up and did what I needed to do. Lunchtime was spent with the 50+ group at my church. It's always a relaxing time of fellowship. Today's luncheon was our last meeting until the fall, as we don't meet during the summer.

Today's speaker was a Christian man who runs a prison ministry at the Windsor Jail. He gave a fabulous presentation. I can tell he truly has a heart for his ministry. Hopefully, I will be able to either contribute or help this ministry, in some way.

Since I was close to my daughter P's home, I called her and dropped by for a short visit. It was my surprise to find my eldest daughter B, there. With my newest grandchild, B's daughter A, who is now five (5) weeks and one (1) day old. They were all outside P's home, waiting for me to arrive.

This was the first time I have seen my granddaughter and was happy to hold her in my arms. What a beautiful baby! Her Dad was there; I congratulated him. In response, he congratulated me, too. I spoke with B for a short time, while I enjoyed cuddling my grandbaby.

What a shocking, but wonderful surprise, this was! I felt blessed, because I was. Praise God! Thank You, Jesus! How could I ever ask for more?! You bless me, beyond belief!

The only thing that could have made this a better blessing, would have been if Gordon could have been there, with me...

Afterwards, because I had preplanned to pick up my newest friend M and take her to my Injured Workers' Coalition meeting, I made my way to M's home. But, since the meeting was cancelled at the last moment, we just went to Timmie's for coffee. We enjoyed our coffee and fellowship time together, getting to know each other, better.

By the time I arrived home, I was absolutely exhausted. Still, I forced myself to get changed, went down to the pool and exercised until my 30+ exercise routine was complete. While the air temperature was in the 80's F, the wind off the river/lake felt cool. When I got out of the pool, I felt like I was freezing! Ah, a cool relief to the heat!

While making dinner, I had several conversations with friends. Then, just relaxed for the evening, watching TV and playing on the computer.

Hopefully, I will sleep well, tonight. I'm exhausted, so I think I'll do my stretching exercise and get to bed, shortly. Nighty-night!

Until next time...
