World is waking from long winter’s sleep

Northeast Ohio

Howdy y’all. This a sunny but cool day here in Lorain. I’m still wishing for some 80 plus weather but guess I’ll just have to be patient and wait, soon!

Hope everyone is well and had a good week. So far ours has not been all that great. Red had another fall and is pretty sore all over and got a pretty good gash on his arm. I sometimes think we need a permanent caregiver; sure ain’t fun getting old.

We did go to Little Edna Church Sunday and we also went Saturday, which we don’t usually do. It’s really interesting to hear them do the church work. They had three visiting preachers and used all three and as usual had some really good singing. Sometimes I get more from a beautiful song than from a sermon.

Bill and Redia stopped by for a short visit. They had been out to eat to celebrate their 42nd anniversary. My gift to them was $21 each, all singles, making a total of $42.

Bill didn’t feel up to par for a few days. He thought for sure he would be down for a week or so but seemed to be feeling some better. I expect to have them drop by, bringing me another load of shirts to work on.

Just sitting here, I am imagining how beautiful the mountains must be. The forsythia is probably in full bloom, just beginning to show a bit of color here. Are redbuds and dogwoods in bloom? They have to be two of the most beautiful and showy trees anywhere. There also must be lots of green showing. Not all that much here, just a smidgen here and there. I truly believe spring is the most special time of the year. It seems the world is waking from a long winter’s sleep.

I haven’t heard a peep from any of the Sergent clan, so I take that to mean all is well. The only one I have talked to is Georgia and except for Richard having a few problems due to his diabetes, all is well with them.

Red has talked to all his brothers and sisters (one brother, three sisters). All seemed to be doing fairly well and just like the rest of us, not getting any younger. I feel we are blessed if we can open our eyes in the morning and see the wonders around us, get out of bed and walk, sit at the table and feed ourselves and just live through the day. There are so many people who can’t do many of these things. And some are unable to do any. We should give thanks every day for all these blessings.

Hello, Oma, Rose, Gladys and all the others who write. Oma, have you seen that baby sister of mine, Anna Lea, lately? I do hope she is behaving herself. Another person I want to know is being good is brother-in-law Phil Adams in Louisville. I don’t have to worry about my sister, Jeanie. I do hope everything is well with you.

Red talked to his brother, Charles. He had been spreading gravel on his driveway. He also said their sister, Jean, was scheduled for some outpatient surgery on her toe Thursday. When she gets home and can go to church, she asked Charles to come sing. He does a lot of singing at their church and also visits others, I think.

I do hope all this makes sense. I have been writing in installments. I stopped to make lunch, Bill came by, then I had to make a trip to the drugstore to pick up a prescription. I may have left out or added a word here and there, and if so I apologize.

I want to say hello to Bobby Joe and Madonna Pass, Eva Dale Douglas, Emilie Schmidt, Don and Ava Blair, Mildred Perdue, Buddy and Doris King and so many others, too many to mention. I have been giving myself a good talking to about getting busy writing letters. I don’t know why I can’t seem to get at writing letters as that’s something I have always enjoyed doing. Soon maybe!

Hello to Rita P. I went through my CD’s and found some duplicates. If you would like to have them, send me an address.

Well, it’s almost time to start supper so until next time, wishing the best for all. May your days be full of sunshine, your nights with pleasant dreams and happiness be with you always. Love and prayers.
