A couple of days ago, PuddyTat forgave me for abandoning her for a week and sought attention at the kitchen window. As far as I know there had been no cats on the cathouse roof for a couple of weeks as all were either in the garage or on the second level. I was able to wash all the blankets. PT liked that apparently and has been sleeping in her box. This morning, Little One decided there must be something interesting going on and joined PT. After eating, LO took over the box but PT wanted the box and rather violently in her way pushed Little One toward the window. No big deal however as there is a blanket there too. Love my cats!
A year ago I attended a birthday party in Hickory, NC. Lutheran pastor, conductor and composer Paul D Weber had arranged it for himself. Yesterday I learned that Paul has suddenly been diagnosed with cancer – not sure what kind yet, but blood-borne (leukemia, lymphoma, or multiple myeloma). He has had two major spinal surgeries to remove a tumor and reconstruct his spine.
Paul's wife Florence Jowers is one of my most favorite friends and Paul is probably my favorite Lutheran pastor. They open their home to me every time I'm in the neighborhood. I carry them and their three kids close to my heart.
Several years ago Paul and I went to Golden Corral for supper as Florence was busy. He has had grey hair for years while I have few. I mentioned senior discount which the gal immediately applied. Paul was conflicted as he was not yet old enough to qualify. He looked at me but said nothing and paid the lower amount. I'm such a terrible influence.
Please pray for Paul, Florence, Amanda, Erin, Jeffrey and their farflung family as well as the medical people who are treating him.
For Margaret and Joel who are true disciples ministering to the people on the poorest Native American reservation in the US. And especially for Margaret who has more funerals in a month than most priests have in several years. And thanks for allowing the children to call her Grandma. She is the best possible person/priest in her position. For Peg and Jim. For all those who believe that guns can solve our problems. For our dysfunctional Congress. For Christ Church Meadville. For R and D especially for R. For me. For Ward. For Bro John. For Jim, especially. For those in the church who are distressed. For A as she deals with dysfunction. For Ginny. For Amelia. For Julie Anne. For Danny. For Amy. For J's mom. For Art and Mary. For rain in California. For Jeri. For Caleb and those who research RA. For J and D. For Tim and Ruth. For Ted. For VC and N. For Lee. For S and P.
