Quilt With Us

Well,flying?.... what a boring way to travel.  Everything went off just fine and we even had nice people surrounding us most of the day.  Quite unexpected. Had lots of leg room on our leg from Spokane to Denver but not so much from Denver to Greensboro. Not sure why that was.   Since we are both tall, we have trouble with airplane seats and tray tables.  They tend to hit our knees before they are in their lowest stage so drinks are a little shaky and have to be watched all the time.  We arrived at GSO with it raining, warm and lots of humidity, something we are not used to.  Today looks to be a good day.  After breakfast, we'll head over to see my parents and break the news about my cancer to them.  I've kept it from my mom as she's a "worry wort" and I didn't want to add to her already full list.  She thinks I'm awful not coming here sooner so maybe now she will understand and forgive me.  Well, here's to a good day for all.

Good that you had a boring flight--that's the best kind. I hope your mom takes the news well and is all forgiving. Have fun in the humidity!

I'm sure that you mom will understand, because Love is unconditional. We may not like all that happens, but the love will always be there to support us. Have a good visit with your parents and keep in touch. Hugs to you. Also, keeping you in my prayers.

I am sure by now Debbie you have told your Mom about your cancer. I pray it all went as well as can be expected.  I wish I had my mom to talk to about things sometimes.  She has been gone now 26 years, she passed when I was 36.  I know we don't want to worry them but they can be a great source of comfort as well.  As the good book says, LOVE overcomes a multitude of wrongs, most of the time with mothers we are forgiven before we even ask for it!!!

Sounds like your plane ride is as bad as mine are, never enough room for my legs. Thinking of you Debbie as you tell you mom about your illness. take good care of you too and get your rest. It looks like I have to change my July ticket to ND , My Mom is not doing good. She was diagnoised with ALS and it is progressing quicker than we thought . She is having trouble eating. My sister , the hospice nurse will take over Mom's care tomorrow and move her to her house.  I will head out as soon as I can get a new ticket.

I wondered if we would hear from you, always liked when you posted on your motor home travels!
Prayer and my thoughts with you today, not an easy thing to tell your parents I am sure, Mom will understand now why you haven't been to see her sooner, all Moms understand.
Have a great visit and enjoy your time and the sea air and have some shrimp for me!!

I'll be thinking of and praying for you and your mom today Debbie. She's going to be so thrilled to see you. Sending you big HUGS!

I find the older the person is... the better they receive bad news...things don't seem to get them as upset. Maybe because they have seen too much of it. Enjoy your visit and keep posting.

I, too, am a little taller than average and the plane seats are pretty cramped for me.  DH and I each had aisle seats across from each other thinking that there would be more leg room, but with someone sitting in the middle seat, it wasn't much better!  People (and attendants) moved up and down the aisle bumping us as they went by.  Certainly not the most pleasant way to travel, I agree.

I hope the conversation goes well with your parents.  It's bound to be a difficult one.  I'll be thinking about you today.

Morning Deb.  I have to agree with you on the planes being a boring way to travel.  But it's a must for most of us to travel that way.  And it does cut down on travel time.  It will be hard to tell your mother about your cancer.  It's hard hearing this.  I took my sister to Bangor again Yesterday. She had a biopsy on her breast.  She has two lumps in her lungs ( that are cancer )and they are still in the process of checking the rest of her body for spots that came up on the MRI. I feel so sorry for her but she is a trooper and don't complain.  It's a helpless feeling to stand by and not be able to do a thing to help, except take her for appointments and pray for her.  I hope your treatments are going well and you lick this awful desease. Your on my prayer list as well.
