Again, thank you all so much. All I've heard from Kris so far is that when she reached home [Fairbanks] it made a huge difference in Fred's heart. [She didn't tell him she was going to be there until her plane landed.]
So far I'm just plain old tired. My Mom, as S.Etole reminds me over and over as I'm ready to scream, is an actual "Maxine." Sometimes that can be funny -- but when in a small portion of her small apartment and being "lipped at" about my less-than-perfect life, choices, views [according to her], it wears me out.
I've been at the library for a while. Am heading to Point Defiance Park to walk on the beach, pick up the rocks that catch my eye, take some photos with my new camera so I can become adept [my long-time camera was stolen from my car a couple days ago], and simply relish the time filled with my Lord's kindness.
My God-job of this next 2+ weeks is to stay with my Mom -- gives my local sisters/nieces a break. When I get home in 3 weeks, I will then receive the necessary rest.
I'll post re: the accident when I have more info. However, again, thank you so much for the support, kindness, prayers...
