My buddy stopped by to pick up some Christmas houses that I had promised him. He's been busy working on his home to get it refinanced and it looks like it's about to become a reality. Good on him and the whole sweet little family. I first met him years ago when I was a youth club leader on Wednesdays at FUMC. Lord, the tales we could tell.
One of my favorite patients told me Merry Christmas today in that way like "if i don't see you before then." She is beautiful and full of grace and we talked about the importance of blood donation to treat people like herself.
I don't know about y'all but I'm extremely encouraged by the outcome at Standing Rock. Lots of little people standing in solidarity do, indeed, make a difference. Somebody asked me today who Edward Snowden is and what he did and I was just kind of flabbergasted. Said she had heard O might pardon him only he's not really been charged or arrested so um... that's a tricky one. Personally, being the freedom of speech kind of gal I am, I think he's a hero.
That's all for now. Keep remembering that there's only so many shopping days left and get y'alls butt in gear.
