Ryan showed up while we were killing time to do the yard so we listened to the mowers and weedeaters hum for an hour or two, checking our phones in silence and just "being," While we were eating lunch I got a call that the phone said was Ryan. Okay then he's working on the yard so I expected to hear his voice when I answered. "Is your back door open, I've got you some eggs from the girls". Um. Yep, only it didn't sound like Ryan at all though I knew the voice. It took me until today to figure out what I had done. Patrick wanted Ryan's number to hire him for mowing and when I sent the number it MERGED their numbers in my phone Yeah I know....here's my sign. I will soon get the neighbor back in his proper area code.
I slept for 14 hours and had to make myself get up because.....grocery shoppng. Before I went I visited Gigi and found her well. We went through all her meds and Googled them and talked about how fortunate she is to be alive. It takes a village you know.
Several friends of mine went to a family reunion yesterday and had a ball doing what folks do when they get together for the 4th. Last night one of that family died suddenly leaving them all in shock this morning. Prayers all around for that tribe. Amy has lost a lot of folks lately just like I did. It takes a toll on your spirit.
Live love and laugh as if each day were your last. It just might be.
