Spot of Rest & Company ( Family Support )

~~~~~Candy, our sweet cat,quietly kept us company while we enjoyed the sunshine on the front porch.Candy adores Hubby, who is enjoying some relief from pain.~~~~~
~~~~~Our wonderful son-in law came over and shared lunch with Hubby. I don't like to call him son-in-law, because he is every bit as precious as our sons, and he and our daughter are always here when we need help, and we don't have to ask. Thank-you Son !~~~~~
~~~~~Later on , Hubby's parents came over to commiserate with Hubby. Hubby and his Mother compared canes. We watched the hummingbirds and the grosbeaks at the bird feeders. We had tea and snacks. Later, Hubby's brother and nephew came over for a visit on the porch and we had ice cream and pleasant talk .~~~~~

~~~~~Our sons, who do not live close at all, began making plans to rush home for us. They were very concerned about Hubby, and have called regularly to check up on him.~~~~~

~~~~~Hubby is doing fine, and how special to know we have family to love and care about the good times and the bad times, and all the times in between. By family, I mean my side of the family as well, they all called ( thank-you sisters ) and our church family. We know they are all willing to be there for us and that matters! That matters a lot. We love you all ! ~~~~~

Please tell "Hubby" that we wish him a speedy and complete recovery. We haven't called to check on his well-being because, well, all we have to do is read your blog to stay up-to-date. :-)
