Brazil Buzz: The journey continues... A family matter
By Mary Lou Sartor
It rained almost the entire day. All outside work that I planned awaits attention. The lawn is not looking its best. Tomorrow there will be more of the same.
Our daughter Starla and our son-in-law Bruce May visited with her children, spouses grandchildren, and us this past weekend. We loved every minute of our time together!
Our daughter Lori Patrick fell last week and suffered a mild concussion, bruising and an injury to her knee.
The family cheer team gave her a cell call and perked up our patient from afar.
I 'm not sure we calmed the troublesome headaches. We, armed with our concern and a wee bit of humor did make her feel better.
Lori hopes to visit in November near my 80th birthday if all goes as planned.
It is always nice when the family can sit down at the table together. We enjoy good food and wholesome conversation and of course what Grandpa has to say to us.
Ours is a very upbeat bunch. We not only love each other -- we like each other.
Some folks doubted that hasty elopement that took place back in 1957 would not last two weeks.
We fooled the nonbelievers. We are still working on making it work, soon to be 62 years since.
The road has been winding, and there has been stumbling blocks and sad times along the path of our continuing journey.
Would we do it all over again? Just give us a few more of those good times, and yes.
Paul has had many health issues over the last two decades, a major stroke and several other surgeries that tested is strength and will power. The family and I have his back. We take good care of our treasure, and my sailor boy gives back two-fold.
Thanks to the staff of Brazil Times, past and present for the writing opportunity, and to you, the readers of this column. I am grateful to one and all and for this continued connection to hometown friends, loved ones, neighbors, and more. God is good!
