We finished the last of the outside Fall “stuff”…we are as ready as we can be for winter and I hear it may look a lot like winter soon. We put away patio furniture, washed the last two windows, cleaned up the sauna, mulched leaves for the very last time, put away the lawn mower and the three wheeler for the winter, drained the water hose and put it away.
We took one day off to visit our former brother in law. We had a good last visit with him. He has multiple myeloma and has hospice care at his daughters home. He told us he was tired and felt he would be leaving this world soon. Heaven will be his home. Our hearts are breaking for our niece and nephew, their spouses and children….they are so young and both have recently become new parents. Both little grandboys were there and they made their Grandpa smile…one is a year old and the other is just five weeks old and came all the way from Japan to meet his Grandpa.
Ready for winter or not…ready for another death or not…God is in charge and we best remember that.
