Is there any time better than to wake up early in the morning before the day begins, listening to the sound of a soft rain falling on the roof, and to have a steaming cup of fresh coffee beside you? Ahhh... I don't think there is! God is good! God is so great!
The older I get, the more I understand about the "secret to life" - enjoying the moment to the fullest. Just learning to be still, be quiet - and let God be God. He knows how to do it best! Accepting that there IS a God ... and I am not Him!
Jimmy gave us all a scare 2 nights ago. Mary Lou called about 9:30 - she was crying and scared. Told me that he had went to the bathroom, was taking longer than she thought he should - she went in to check on him, and he was standing there, holding to the wall. With eyes glazed, mouth open, incoherent. I told her to check his blood sugar. After what we went thru in May with Rick, that was our first thought. She didn't know how to do the glucometer. I told her to call 911. She had called Tina already, and was insisting on waiting for Tina. Tina got there, David took one look at Jimmy ... and an ambulance was called. Tina said that he was acting like he had had a stroke.
Rick called Aunt Jerry - and she went down there to check on them.
When the EMT's got him in the ambulance, one of the first things they did was take his blood sugar - and after Mary Lou had given him a piece of candy, it was 44! Jimmy was given the emergency shot, and before they got him to the hospital, he was alert, and talking!
He spent the night in the hospital for observation. But all tests came back good. No stroke. Nothing more wrong with his heart. Still a slight prostate infection. Meds were adjusted. He was sent home with more instructions and directions.
And I have a few more grey hairs ... so, yes, the Coffee tastes extra good!
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
