I wish a very Happy Holiday and a Merry Christmas to everyone.
I am very happy today for what I have but am followed by the sadness of losing my brother Randy this year. He was a very special brother to me and I can't even talk to Mother yet today because I know she is feeling the same as me and I have to wait till I can talk ok. He was always late to Christmas Eve present opening in Missouri because he was ALWAYS helping someone with a crisis; A friend with a car breakdown to fix, a plumber needed, and a babysitter needed are just a few that I can recall off the top of my head.
He was loved my so many and today I know he is pain free from his own chronic-pain problems from leg and knee surgeries, neck and hand surgeries, Dupuytren's Contracture disease that curled his fingers but, he always made room for his friends whenever they needed him.
He would bring his babysitting children to our home for Christmas Eve so they would not be alone or hear their parents fighting, he took them away from those situations. He would go hunt deer and fish for food for himself as he could not hold down a job to have any money.
He just cared for everyone an anything they needed that he could help with, he was there.
I just miss him so today, we would always talk if we could not be together for Christmas.
But, I am so thankful to have my husband Bob with me today as he was so critically ill in October from sepsis, a blood infection he most likely got from an August surgery back fusion. He was ill the whole month of September before we found out what was happening in his blood in early October. Thank goodness for those awful wounds that appeared to let him know, do something more!
I was blog hopping to my friends this morning and found this wonderful angel that just brought me to tears and she is so beautiful. I borrowed her from the blog
There's an angel on my Front Porch . I share the grief and sorrow with this family for the loss of their daughter, but rejoice that she is also with no pain anymore.
