We are still healing from Lonnie's death. It has been tough but it gets easier each day. Ricky and I are doing better. There are moments we grieve but we are getting through it. However I am concerned about Cheyenne. She has worked herself into exhaustion causing 2 bouts of illness. She doesn't take much time off. I understand because she wants to keep her mind off of things. But I worry because its not healthy working when you are sick.
Thanksgiving was nice. Cheyenne hosted a nice dinner at her house. It was quite comical because there were very few chairs and places to sit. But everyone had a wonderful time. There was a ton of food and lots of laughs. There were a few tears when speaking about Lonnie but we held it together for the most part.
The holiday season has been busy. Ricky and I were involved in a Christmas program with the church. We were a part of a few holiday gatherings. We exchanged gifts. Ricky and I exchanged gifts. He got me a flat griddle and a very nice set of knives. I got him an Amazon gift card and a Sears card. He worked really hard over the past 2 months to make sure we had a Christmas. I was worried about him because he had some health challenges but its getting better.
I am not in the habit of New Years resolutions. However I do want to try to do some things better in 2014. I have been dealing with some issues that need attention. My health is not bad but it could be better. I need to drop some weight. My feet have been hurting like crazy and I know that the extra pounds are not helping. I also need to get better regarding my relationship with God. I get so angry and frustrated at Him. I know that doesn't get me anywhere.
I pray that with each passing day we can move forward to better things.
