Page 65 Wading through a flood

Mon Oct 7, 1996.

PIC_0326Well, I guess I’m slowing also forgetful. This is the second thing to write about.  What do you think of your 77 year old mother wading around the beach in knee-deep water and sometimes almost up to my derriere. Of all the forty-eight years being here, water has never gone all the way up 21st and 72 Ave.

Well it sure was fun wading with all the teenagers at 10pm.  One young boy was so nice, he kept saying “are you alright, now be careful.”  This day and age you don’t usually see young people so concerned.

Bye bye, it was a wading good time.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately of the many many times I felt God’s leading in my life.

trchrelyJuly 4 – Got up this AM at 5AM, didn’t want to miss the Olympic Torch-bearers going along Gulf Boulevard.  I left the apartment at 6AM and didn’t see a soul going.  I thought if it is such a big deal where is everyone?

Well, I found out everyone was already along Gulf Boulevard two-deep as far in either direction you could see.  It was kind of exciting.

Another thing you children miss is knowing all of your cousins and Aunts and Uncles.  As a little girl, I can remember that so many of our relatives would spend weekends visiting us.  Mom would cook such luscious meals and we would have such a good time with many cousins.
