Blue Skies

It has been a great productive week in every possible way.  Allow me to explain the reason for my euphoria.  Last Sunday evening I was able to see my almost five month old granddaughter Mia on Skype along with my son and daughter-in-law.  Joining them just like a conference call  ( it is now become a video conference call) my other son Joe and his wife are right there on my computer screen.  This allowed each of us to be able to view one another and also to be able to chat.

Goodness gracious I was blown away by the whole experience!  I am now looking forward to seeing my other grand and great grand children perhaps next week on Skype.

On Tuesday I visited my first grade students and helped them with their sight words.  We also talked about next weeks trip to the Pumpkin Patch where once again I will be the class Mother assisting Mrs McKim as we  board the big yellow bus. My black t-shirt and orange sweat shirt to wear along with maybe a witches hat are ready to be worn.  This is by far one of my favorite trips to do with the students and we are looking forward to next Tuesday.

Today,  I started my new volunteer position helping a person pay their bills.   This is through the CARES agency that screens and fingerprints all volunteers and trains us to help as Bill Payers for people who can’t do it themselves for different reasons.  It is usually for ages 60 and up ( but the agency will make exceptions) in extreme cases.   My person is  wonderful lady that unfortunately  has broken her wrist in two places and  it just happens to be her writing hand.   She is so proud and surprised  at how strong her other hand  has become as she prints her name on the checks I have written as her signature.

We are so fortunate to have these agencies to help our Seniors.  And, I love being able to help someone in need and also to make a new friend.

Tomorrow is my four-hour stint at the hospital’s gift shop and I feel that perhaps only the candy flowers and balloons are left to sell.   It was almost bare last week.  There are only a few weeks till the grand opening and ribbon cutting at the new hospital.

So next week is the pumpkin patch trip and the visit to see Sophia at her school.  Reports cards come out on Thursday and I have my fingers crossed.  All A’s would sure be nice.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    I just came back from visiting some of my grandchildren. Iam glad you were able to connect with your grandchildren even if it was via technology. Grandchildren are such a joy.

    Yes, Mary they are the highlights of my life right now. Do your grandchildren live nearby or out of state?
