Proverbs 16:24 Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones
This weekend we are spending at Stone Ridge golf course resort. We have a lovely little place all to ourselves, and nothing is required of us while we’re here.
Mike had a hard time waking up, and tried, several times, to cancel this outing. I convinced him he could sleep on the way, and he finally agreed. I got our clothes together, packed, and loaded into the car. Mike slept. Then we drove here, and he was mostly awake; however, he went to sleep as soon as we were in the door and he could lay down.
He was very confused, he kept asking how much do we owe, and I kept telling him nothing – we were given a gift of the weekend to relax. He kept looking at me, not understanding. When we were getting ready for bed, he kept asking for pillows. I told him they were on the bed, he said I know that, but I need pillows! Turns out he wanted water.. he told me several times he felt very confused and maybe we should go home. No, we’re here until Monday morning. (Robert is working on a project and Mike needs to be out of the house)
Mike wanted to watch TV, so I turned it on for him. He laid on the sofa dozing off and on while the movie played. He wanted blueberry pie and ice cream for dinner, so I purchased a pie and baked it for him, he went to sleep before he had any. Maybe he’ll have some for breakfast 🤔
I’m thinking this will be our last overnight outing, we do have a Christmas dinner, with the firefighters, the 1st week of December, and even though I am preparing for it, I am not opposed to canceling to keep Mike in a best case scenario. The dinner is at the Davenport Hotel, in Spokane and if we go, we’ll spend the night rather than driving home on snowy roads. I’ll leave that option open for a while, but I’m not holding my breath in anticipation.
Everything I do now, I give the priority consideration to how it will affect Mike. He’s my number 1 concern and responsibility.
