Tearful Goodbye – See You in 6 Months

Hello Friends!

I wasn’t sure what to title this blog post.  I’m just going to share what I did today.  I got a call from church and they said someone dropped off an envelop with my name on it. It was from “anonymous”. So I went and picked it up. Got in my car and opened it. It contained $160! I sat there and cried and thanked God for this person or persons. I couldn’t believe it. I am so blessed with such a wonderful church family.

After my tears dried up, I went to my gym (YMCA) and turned in a form to put my membership on hold for three months. This way they won’t pull any money from my account (there’s no money there anyway, but still). Hopefully, I’ll have a job before they start pulling again. I’m so glad they offer this option. The other option was to completely cancel the membership and re-join when I could.  But right now, I get a good discount so I didn’t want to lose that either.

From there, I went to visit with my grandma and uncle. They are leaving to go back to Florida for the winter on Sunday. So this was my last visit with them for 6 months. I’m going to miss them so much! Grandma said if I’m in the area, I can always stop in.  I’ll have to seriously consider a visit. Problem is, I have no money and no job at the moment so that seems highly unlikely.  But if I get a job, I would have to seriously consider going to visit. I would drive down. And that would be my longest drive that I’ve taken by myself. As of right now, my longest drive so far has been to Tennessee to visit my other uncle. That was a great visit too.  I had a great time at my grandma’s today.  We did a lot of talking and watching TV. She made me dinner too. I’ve included a picture of it.  It was roast beef and gravy over mashed potatoes.  I also included a picture of the kitty cat that my uncle rescued at the beginning of summer. The cat was basically living outside around their house. He’s been taking care of her all summer. Now he’s taking her with them to Florida.  That cat has been so spoiled. She’s a sweetheart though. Her name is Skipper.

The last picture I’m including is a picture of myself.  I’m wearing my Cornerstone University sweatshirt. It’s special to me because when I first got this sweatshirt, it didn’t fit. It does now. It actually fits quite nicely.  I’m glad it fits too because this week is Student Appreciation Week and they’re holding a contest. You have to take a picture of yourself sporting your school attire showing your school spirit and post it to Facebook. Apparently, the best one will win a prize.  I was just happy to be able to participate. Don’t know that I’ll actually win anything. Doesn’t really matter to me.  Just being able to fit in the sweatshirt now is prize enough for me.  76 lbs. down!! Yes!

Here are the pictures:

That dinner was actually really good. Not shown are the few little pieces of Brussel Sprouts I had.  I normally don’t care for them, but I told grandma I would try them. They were actually pretty good. I was surprised that I liked them.  And isn’t Skipper kitty so cute?

Well, I hope you all are having a beautiful day. My thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by the hurricanes and other natural disasters going on in the world.

I wish you all peace, love and happiness.

❤ Dottie
