can you believe it!
Today is my sister Lauries Birthday,
I just had a long talk to her on the phone,
She is always a good way to start my day.
Another way I like to start the day
is to go over to my friend Se'lahs blog.
She gets us together for Random Act of Kindness,
Gift of Jewels,
and now is giving of her heart once again.
Please visit her.
at her blog Necessary Room.
She has a heart of gold,
and it is for a very good cause.
I grew up on a farm as most of you know,
Christmas was always a time for gatherings.
Sometimes there would be 25 - 30 people there.
We always had my Grandmother and my Great Aunt would come from where she lived,
and thinking of Christmas this year,
I am really missing all the people that have left earth as they were called.
So my hubby and I are going to go home for Christmas.
It will be a small Christmas but it will still be wonderful.
I will call my Mom tonight,
She has been asking me for days,
I keep saying As soon as Wain knows if he can get the time off, I will let you know.
So conversation yesterday went something like this,
Mom: Did Wain find out yet if he gets the time off?
Me: Mom the paperwork just went in yesterday.
Mom: Well all they have to say is yes or no.
Me: That would be great, but the days off have to be approved and go through the proper chanels.
Mom; What Chanels,? Did you say Chanels?
Me: Chanel 18 the music chanel
Me; Mom the proper channels, he has to get authorization from his boss, whom has to get
authorization from his boss.. Then they will let us know. and I will let you know ASAP
Mom: Well I just don't understand why Wain can't go in and say he is going home for Christmas, how about if I phone them?
Me; Mom that is like having your Mommy phone in sick for you?
Mom, Well I could do that too at the same time.
Me, oh for sure Mom, do you have a pen?
Mom; Just a minute, (I can hear her walking away talking to herself saying,she will get this straightened out.)
Me thinking...Lord Love a Duck...which just happens to be one of her sayings. hearing her footsteps, shes coming.
Mom: okay I got the pen and paper.
Me, The number is 1-800-not a chance!
Mom: laughing saying, well I thought it might work.
Me; Mom as soon as I know I will let you know.
We were both laughing by this time.
some of our conversations seem a little strange.
So when Wain came home last night, he told me everything had been approved.
So tonight I will let her know,
and I know she will say, see he did not have to go through any channels.
But she will be happy knowing we are coming home,
and so are we!
