Update and Roses

 I drove up to Billings today to see Cathy.   She's on pain killers and mostly resting.  It was so good to see her and be able to hug her.  120 miles is so far sometimes, especially when you just want to be there.  I'm so glad I went.  This is my gratitude today, to see and spend time with one of my precious daughters and getting there and back safely.

To explain myself, Cathy is Catherine.  I've called her Cathy since she was born and she decided several years ago that she loves her name Catherine and wants to be called that, but it's hard for me to change - sorry Cathy. 

Have you ever seen these roses?  Someone sent these to her - in fact she had flowers all over the house.  They're called Tie-Dye roses, they've been treated some way to be very interesting gypsy-like colors.  I think they're fascinating.

Hi Diane, so glad you were able to visit Catherine. It's a good thing that the weather is still rather moderate so that you are able to make the drive. Glad to hear that she is doing well. Wishing you all the best and sending great big hugs, Tammy

I'm happy to hear that things are going well for Catherine and that you've been able to see her. That is so important for both of you. There is healing in touch, somehow. The flowers are very beautiful and I'm glad she has a roomful of them. I hope you can be more calm now. You both are still in my prayers.
love, Rosalie
