Too many thoughts makes a body tired.
The house, my parents' house, needs a new roof. It needed one last year but we managed to stop up the leak with a slathering of roofing tar. We slathered several spots, but where the water actually comes in is anybody's guess. We all know that even a good roof won't last forever and no amount of denial will keep the water out. The roof has to be replaced. The Cabinetmaker has said he is willing to help me with the labor if he can organize a team of helpers. I'll probably need to take out a loan to cover the cost of materials.
Rachel and I took our brother Tim out for a ride on Sunday. The state is looking to move him out of his longtime residence and into a different state home. A worker was really excited about a place that opened up a month or so ago. We were less than excited as it was even farther than we drive now. We talked to a few people recently and have decided to begin a search of our own. Perhaps we have options other than the state. Please pray that the right place opens up and we can move our brother closer to us.
One of my boys is on a two week "vacation" except it's not really a vacation. Momma's hearts are always hurting for their children and I have a passel. Now that they're grown up they have grown up problems, and if it isn't one that is hurting, it's another. (On a happy note, we're getting another grandson in November.)
Life trials continue. Prayers are appreciated in this area too. Thank you for loving both of us and keeping us in your thoughts.
