Yesterday morning I decided to walk to the hospital to see Dad and have lunch with him. I debated about it. Since my illness, often exercize seems to make me feel worse, but I know it is good for me and I need it. I decided to take it slow.
Does it seem later than usual for the geese to be laying eggs? We had just been talking about the fact that we hadn't seen any baby geese about this year. We always have little babies walking about the area. They really are so cute! (of course, the millions of geese that decided to winter here was absurd and hopefully that won't happen next year!!)

but love our new home too.

We had a wonderful lunch together and then went back to his room. We talked and also wept together. This is hard. We listened to some worship CD's together. God is good. He is ever present!
He will call upon me, and I will
be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation.
It is good to praise the Lord
and make music to Your Name,
O Most High,
to proclaim Your love in the morning
and Your faithfulness at night....
I sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
How great are Your works, O Lord...
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree....
They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green.
Daddy is 89 and God has truly blessed him. Such a man of God.
He told me that he and mom have a thing they do each night. They always kiss and tell eachother that they love eachother. Then he cried as he said he didn't get to do that last night. But yesterday evening, as we left, he and mom kissed and again said "I love you, dear" to one another. So sweet!
