A Woman of Faith...
She is one amazing person.
If you think you have a rough life, don't.
[Well, some of you do, so it's okay to think that.]
Few people I know, though, have had it as bad as Audrey... and now her husband is in the hospital, and well, who knows when he'll be out.
So Mother and I went to see them. I was so glad Mother felt like going.
(I just wish I had remembered to take a picture!!)
We had a good visit, and as we were driving home, Mother and I both commented on how positive Audrey is. Well, she is a woman of faith, that's for sure.
(We go to cheer her up, and she cheers us up!)
Audrey knows a lot about life: life in prison (unjustly for 3 years); severe autism (her 21 year old son); losing all her fortune, etc., etc.
There's more, but you'll need to read her book, when she finishes it someday.
Oh, and she was one of the founding members of Bear Valley Community Church!!!
That was an amazing feat, since she lived in Garland when we started... AND because of dear Nate, her severely autistic son.
Anyway, pray for Audrey... and Ron (husband of 5? years)... and Nate... and Brandon (her second son).
(Brandon is almost 20, and goes to Collin Community College. He also works for HIRSCH'S MEATS in Plano. He's worked there since he was sixteen, and does everything there: cuts meats, smokes meats, etc., etc. HIRSCH'S MEATS is famous in the Metroplex and has been written up in D Magazine.

Oh, Deanna, I haven't forgotten, one of these days let's DO that road trip to see Audrey, and maybe go by and get some good meat!
Different note: I wore my green shoes today in the tea room and played "Danny Boy", "My Wild Irish Rose" and a few other lilting Irish tunes.
(Have to get ready for St. Patrick's Day, don't cha know?)
I know those aren't emerald green shoes, but it's hard to find emerald green shoes.
By the way, I should be playing those Irish tunes on Saturday in the tea room from 12-2 (LoneStar Antiques, 5605 North Denton Highway, Haltom City, TX)... just north of Loop 820 (Exit 19).
If you come in you BETTER be wearing green. (I've been exercising my pinch fingers!)
