This has been a great week. Mom and Sammie have been visiting and just left this morning. Sammie (my grandmother) has not been well since my grandfather Debs died last year, and one of the things she kept regretting aloud over the course of the past few months was that she hadn't gotten to visit us since we bought our house. So, my mother, angel that she is, whisked her up here for a five-day visit. (She was able to tear herself away from her house while they were sheet rocking it.)
Thanks, Mom. The past five days were a gift.
