Happy Happy Birthday, Jerry! This day certainly didn’t turn out the way we expected it to! Here’s what was planned…Going to Lanny’s for breakfast. Fixing a fried chicken dinner with apple pie and inviting Rob’s family over for the birthday dinner.
Here’s what took place…Went to Lanny’s for breakfast with Rob. Thank you, Rob. I gave him the three new shirts I bought for him. Jerry cooked scalloped potatoes with Polish sausage for supper. A friend, Rose, brought an apple pie from Grand Traverse Pie Company! Haleigh and Elmise came over with a plate of brownies with a candle in the middle. They sang Happy Birthday to Grandpa! It was sweet.
In case you don’t know the reason for the change in birthday plans…it’s my fault! Yesterday afternoon I was diagnosed with Shingles! I thought it was just a sciatic nerve problem that could be remedied with physical therapy! Not so simple.
So he’s taking care of me. Shingles is very painful.
Ten years ago, on his birthday, I slipped in the ice and broke my arm! He spent seventeen hours in the hospital with me! That was not a good birthday either! He told me this morning, “Next year I’m not going to tell you when it’s my birthday!”
He deserves so much more than this. He’s a very good Christian man, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, friend and neighbor.
Thank You, Heavenly Father, for Jerry. Please keep him in good health. Thank You for blessing him over the years. Watch over him, give him strength, watch over him as the years go slipping by so rapidly. I love him so much and You love him even more!
