Time Out

Sitting with a nanogenarian slows me down–not a bad thing.

Thankful for the chance, for a mom-in-law who can still have a chat, face to face.

Very thankful.

My visits to this town mark memories and occur less often now. First visit when dating my husband, later with our boys, 50th wedding anniversary of in-laws, Papa’s homegoing 12 years ago.

Oklahoma is warm, like God’s mercy in allowing our Gran some good time still. She turns 94 before June!

Also great Christian care in her assisted living quarters. Such a blessing, from Gran & Papa’s working, saving, planning and many generous people who built and gave over decades. Along with those who work and give now.
Thank you, Go Ye Village, too.

  1. Nice reflections, Lois. Sitting with an 80, 90, 100 year old does give me perspective. It’s been years since I’ve been to Tahlequah! It would be fun to visit Go-Ye Village and the old campus again, and even more so if you and Dan were there, too.

    What day is his mom’s birthday? Maybe you’re celebrating with her as I type! ~ Joy
