Howdy, Howdy, y’all! I hope your week went well! My week was A-Okay!

Please keep the family of Mary Linkous in your prayers. She lost her battle with ALS. I know the loss of a child and it is the worst thing that can happen to parents.

I would also ask that you keep my first cousin, Judi Sorah in your prayers. She had been dealing with health issues for a while and had been tested for everything coming down the pike, including Charcot, Marie Tooth Syndrome. Long story.

She had surgery to try to help her situation, to no avail. Last week, she was diagnosed with ALS.

I hate it for her so much. It is an ugly disease. God is great, God is good, and He is merciful though.

I told her I wished we could go back in time. We were practically attached at the hip when we were growing up. I am four months older than her.

I was the eldest granddaughter and she was the second eldest, in the Sorah family. We had some of the best times together. We had a few tiffs along the way however, we loved each other, like crazy.

We are going to continue laughing with the adventures of Brenda and Jan this week. We were two characters.

Good morning coffee: There were mornings I would call her and she’d say come on over and we will have some good ol’ coffee this morning, or she would up and call me and say come on over and we will have coffee and we would talk each other’s heads off.

If you were around us you had to laugh or leave the room.

We also enjoyed our time spent together with our children. We would have a blast.

I will finish this next week. We’ve got a storm coming and I need to get home. God be with all of us. He is our shelter in the time of storms.

“And that’s the way I see it.”

God bless and keep you and yours! You are loved! Let’s find something good and easy to eat! It will be a Duke’s Mixture! I hope you will find Duke somewhere in the Mix! Enjoy!
