Moving and Memories

AC and I are going to help our youngest daughter move to a new little apartment tomorrow and that is a rather scary thing when you think that we both have gimpy backs. Yikes! We are the moving crew????? Hard to believe. At least she is just a poor student and doesn’t have heavy appliances or bulky furniture to be carted around. Just one small apartment of “stuff”, to be moved to another small apartment. Shouldn’t be too bad.

I remember my dad and grandpa coming and helping us move each time we went from student housing to student housing and then to our little townhouse when John got his first teaching job. I don’t know what we would have done without them. We didn’t have two cents to put together and they gave freely of their time and energy to help us. They came with their gimpy backs and sore legs and drove the truck and then carried what they could. They lifted our hearts and spirits right along with the boxes and bookcases. Love enables us to do many things, and love will help us move our daughter into her new little place tomorrow. Hopefully we will make many happy memories for her to look back on in years to come and they will warm her heart like the memories of my dad and grandpa helping us, are warming mine today.

We will be gone for a few days so I won’t be doing much writing or posting blogs in the next little while. Come visit me again in mid- September and I will tell you how the move went.

Talk to you all later.

Hi Alianora
Thanks for the note. I feel like I have fallen off the face of the earth and have been on Mars for the past couple of weeks. I am slowly but surely coming back to good old terra firma though. I will write a blog about out adventures soon. Stay tuned. Let me just say that helping our daughter move was quite an adventure - a third floor apt with no elevator made things very interesting indeed. Trying to manouver a 16ft cube van along the busy downtown streets of a major city during rush hour traffic added another challenging twist to the tale!!!! To top things off, we had to make the 7 hour trip home this week through torrential rain and gale force winds- the tail end of one of the hurricanes pesting mother earth these days.

I have been home for two days and have been doing laundry and sleeping!! That's it! Writing will start next week. Thanks for your new addy. I will visit you soon. Talk to you later. Cuppa
