Moments In Our Life's

Yesterday was a very full day with not very many moments given to thoughts for a post..... Our two grandchildren came for a all day stay as mom and dad , both teachers... dad at Ayersville and mom a guidance counselor at Tinora both has required to be there days before the students actually attend school on Monday.
We started the morning by waiting on UPS to bring a package containing a pair of new Ohio State looking special ordered shoes for Lance... They arrived... I explained to the boys how years back we use to have our feet placed in a machine and X-rayed to see if the shoes fit correctly... They were real fascinated by that... Next we headed over to the golf course to play golf with the boys... They each have their own clubs and are learning some of the rules.... Grandpa has had them over many times... Imagine that? After many strokes and having the most exciting thing... the full throttle ride on the golf cart the boys were ready to come home ... Toasting hot dogs on the grill and fresh cut french fries potatoes... applesauce... sliced tomatoes... and a surprise cupcake completed a lunch for the boys... Next the begging for hidden object games on the computer... I downloaded a 60 minute game for us to hide and seek... { oh how different than when my grandma and I used to play " Hide the Thimble"} of which I have nothing but fond memories.... After we played the game it was pretty much time for the boys to gather their belongings and wait on mom to come pick them up... shared with more conversation... We had about a hour to change clothing and and head back to the course to play the Friday night mixed couples scrambles... After a lovely, lovely evening on the course we went to the clubhouse and had our supper and load of conversation... Most of the couples throw in a couple dollars and games of Keno are played... After about a hour and a half we finally said we had enough and headed home... I came home ...soaked in a hot bath filled with oils and headed directly to bed...
The first thing I did this morning was to check out Tinora's first night of football score and found they had been very successful... Way to go guys....
The past couple days have been spent absorbing the loss of our dear friend and adjusting our thoughts... The funeral will be on Monday... so there is a possibility posting may be very light the next couple days...
We all have moments in our lives... they are available in different degrees on a daily basis... We can find them to be very pleasant with the smile of a friend or someone we love or even someone we don't even know.. Think of moments you have been over come with joy and remember how they affect your life.. My thought for you today: Many times we have been told doing things we love can be selfish.. I do not find this to be true... I have found before we freely give love first, we must be full ourselves.... I hope it is possible for you all to do something you love today... It will make life contagious.......
