Before leaving, Ofcharka and Harley wanted to dance with Brianna. She was quite flattered, but declined, due to not being able to choose between the two. Robbie also decided he would like a dance and jumped up to try to sneak a kiss on the lips, but fortunately for Brianna, missed by a hair. On the way home from Bonnyville, we stopped at my Godmother's home in Glendon. Cecelia was home, but not too happy. Her best friend of a lifetime, had passed away. Only six weeks ago, she went to the doctor complaining of some pains, was diagnosed with third stage cancer and she quietly passed away at home only six weeks thereafter. How very lonely and sad for my Godmother. Both of her husbands have gone on, and now her best friend. She is alone, though she does have nieces and nephews and a brother who love her dearly and include her in their family as one.
We did stop at two liquor stores on the way home looking for strawberry beer. I bought two and then decided to try to find Kraken spiced rum, bought a bottle of that too. I drank the beers, one with the kids over a supper of roast chicken and duck, stuffed into a very slow oven prior to our sojourn and tasty and delicious when we returned home hungry. We also stopped for dog food at the Hutterite's. They are very kind and good to me and I have made friends of some of the ladies there. What a wonderful day! I am grateful for the presence of my family and for my friends and the blessings of my life. What a wonderful life! Thank you Creator for everything! Thank you.
