As I rummaged around on Facebook yesterday morning, a message from my son Josiah, popped up on the screen. "Hello?" he said, and went on to inquire as to my plans for the day. We both had plans that included a drive to Webster and agreed to meet for lunch around 12:30 or so. Hannah and I ran our errands and when 12:30 rolled around, I gave him a call. (I guess I like my cell phone after all...) As luck would have it, he was just across the parking lot in the same plaza. We decided it was a Panera Bread kind of day and met there just a few minutes later. I had the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad (because it looked fairly gluten free) and enjoyed it very much, but mostly I enjoyed a relaxed moment with two of my favorite people.
If you will, keep my mom in your prayers. Her iron level is low and the anemia is causing her to be even more tired than she normally is. Even normal everyday things like getting dressed or undressed appear to sap all of her energy. I asked her how she was when I came home yesterday and she said, "Not good," but her only explanation of why she's not good is that she's "getting old" and she's tired. I am helpless to help her.
