It felt like Christmas today.
I know a woman who was hurt badly in a freak accident. A Plant City sheriff was giving a demonstration to the Chamber of Commerce's group of business people. He was on a motorcyle showing how the radar is used. The Sheriff's deputy lost control of the motorcycle and hit the woman I know, Lynn, and cut all the tissue away from her leg from knee to ankle. She will be fine but the recouperation is going to be a long one. She just got home from the nursing home where she was getting rehab. She is walking a bit now and things are better but she needs help on her day to day living. A bunch of us volunteered(after she asked for help- and we are thankful she asked)to come by on certain days of the week to help out. My day was yesterday 12-2 and Fridays at the same time. I took her lunch and cleaned the house up and got all her things that she would need around her there.I felt like I had done something worthwhile to start off this day. The first thing good was to go to the Y to work out, the second to help Lynn.
Then at 5pm my Jeni and Tom came and we had sandwiches and celebrated our Christmas together. We had a wonderful evening. Jeni and Tom got us some thoughtful and creative gifts and I think they liked the ones we got them. Well, I know they did. It was wonderful having them to ourselves for a few hours this night. Everything is going so good for them now. Its a joy just to be around them.
My best gift was a photo of Tom and Jeni. I had been asking for a couple years now so I was really glad to finally hold one in my hands. Lexi was really interested in the gift opening and all the wrapping. Her t-shirt says "Go ahead and put me on the naughty list."
It was a wonderful day.
