It has been awhile....

I haven't posted in quite a while; I know. Life is ever-changing. I drove to Pittsburgh this month because my mother was in intensive care. She pulled through with flying colors and is currently about to be released from a rehab center, where they have been working with her to regain her strength. Not bad for an 85-year-old woman, huh?

Well, anyway, I did get to visit with my brothers, who I haven't seen in quite a long time. I missed my oldest brother by a few hours, however; but it was good seeing the other three. My two youngest brothers have beauiful families, and I'm so happy for them. Mike, the second brother is not married, but quite happy. He and I arrived in Pittsburgh within moments of each other and spent a lot of time together.

So I left Pittsburgh and drove to Charlotte, NC and spent the night at my youngest brother's beautiful home. His wife was just super to me. Since I'm not used to be waited on, it was a real treat.   

I returned home to a very joyful cat! She missed me! My neighbor took care of her while I was gone, and she was not happy about it. (She doesn't like men!) I Started going through my emails--all 1800 of them--and that took a few days. If there is ever a good reason to invest in a laptop, that was it.

Just as I got caught up, my computer picked up a virus. I immediately got it to a repair shop where they removed it. Fortunately, nothing was damaged, but I had them put another virus protector on my computer, since the one I was using missed the virus--which was called a ransom virus, by the way. Nasty thing, it was! Everything is fine now. Not to worry.

Some of you who knew about my mother's illness sent notes of concern and prayer offerings. THANK YOU! Your caring and your concern was appreciated.
