Silly, Me!

If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that I had forgotten to post what I had written, previously.

You may be wondering what reminded me.  Well, it was because on Saturday, I travelled to a nearby town, Amherstburg, with a friend.  My friend is a fellow writer, who was planning to set up a table at a church sale, to promote and sell copies of her (children's) book.

We have done this together in the past, and since we life in the same apartment building, it makes sense to attend some of these events, together. 

In any case, I had agreed; off we went.

We spent the better part of the day speaking with people who attended the church event, looking to buy various items available for sale, from any of the numerous tables set up.  Of course, we also took turns watching our table, so we could go walk around a bit.  After all, everyone needs to stretch their legs and have a change from being secured to a table!

As I've mentioned previously, I am not really a shopper.  In fact, I would like to say that I don't like shopping, at all.  However, we all have to do it, in order to live.

However, being a person who likes to save time, energy and money, it was a good place to walk around, for there were many varied items available.

I suppose I should qualify what I just said.  Yes, I needed the exercise.  Yes, it was interesting.  And, yes... I did shop!

Okay, I shopped quite a bit, even.  Definitely more than my cohort.

A short time before we were due to pack up and head for home, someone I knew entered the church and approached our table.  It was the person I wrote about, yesterday.  The fellow who had worked with my husband, Gordon.

After a short conversation, he notified my writer friend that he had known and liked my now deceased husband.  This reminded me once again, of the movie evening, when we shared a table watching the movie, Courageous!

Once again, I was happy to hear that someone cared for my Gordon. 

But at the same time, I felt rather sad in my heart, realizing there is no love for me, here on earth; for he's now in heaven.  For this, I thank God, even if it makes me sad that we are no longer together.

Of course, once I was home, I perused some of my blog entries and didn't find the one I posted yesterday, posted previously.  Then, I realized that I had written it, and forgotten to post it.

Silly, me!  Well, there you have it.  I'm not perfect.  But, then, no one is.


Until next time...
