It is hard to restart a habit that has been broken.
I don't even know how many weeks it has been since
I've blogged; I guess I've needed an impetus to
restart the engine and this weekend I received one.

G'ma Opal's 97th birthday party is a good place to
start over with.

My mother decided that 97 was a pretty special age.
Plus, as she said, "I don't know if I'll be around for
G'ma's 100th birthday and I don't want her to forget me."
So, with Mom as the driving force, we put together a
pretty special day for Old Granny.

She had friends and family and food, and she has her
faith in Christ, so what else can a girl ask for? Well,
maybe some cards and money to go shopping with, but she
got a ton of cards and I know some of them had greenbacks
in them.

I do want to write a bit about my trip to the Philippines,
but there is a lot I can't say for privacy reasons, so I'll
just pop some tidbits in as time goes by. I will just say
that Becky and I had a truly wonderful time.
