Love and Affection...

If you've been a long time reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL), or if you know me in person, you'll know that my family and friends are very important to me.

Fourteen (14) years ago today, while my (now deceased) husband Gordon and I were away on vacation, my daughter P almost died.  She had a placental abruption.  Only a couple of weeks before her pregnancy due date.

Not only did my daughter almost die, but her child K died.  My first granddaughter, who would have been a teenager, had she lived.

Every year, this day is a day my daughter and many of those who love her, will never forget.  K will never be forgotten.  And, always loved.

Talking about love, I truly felt blessed and loved over the past 24 hours or so.

Yesterday, my daughter P came to visit me. 

We had a nice visit, together.  But, as I always feel, it was too short!  lol  When would it ever be too long??  Seriously, I appreciated seeing P, and enjoyed my time with her.

Today, my daughter B came to visit, bringing with her, my youngest grandchild, A.

I enjoyed seeing both my daughter and my granddaughter, today.  Of course, A is very much like B was when she was young; hyper-active!  Still, I truly felt blessed enjoying time with them.

Not long after my girls left for home, someone else came to visit me.  B, a friend of Gordon's, arrived as planned.

Since B lives in St. Thomas, Ontario, a couple of hours drive from here, we don't get together, often.  Usually, once or twice per year. 

Although, B does call me from time to time.  He's always told me that he feels he needs to make sure I am okay, since he was a good friend of my now deceased husband.

It was certainly a busy day, for me.  Not that I did anything much physically.  But relationally, for sure.

At this time of year, being holiday times, when people celebrate Christmas and New Year's, it's often a time when people visit each other.

This reminded me of Romans 12:10, "Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;"

Ah, it did my heart good having company!  I thank God for each person, who cared enough to come visit with me.

I must say, after I found myself alone, I went and had a nap, because I felt totally exhausted.  Yes, I did enjoy it!  Hopefully, it won't disturb my sleep, tonight.

No matter the outcome, I thank my Lord!

Until next time...
