Every once in a while you just have to laugh at yourself, or your situation, or whatever! On Saturday mom and I were doing our routine grocery shopping (why shop alone when you can shop with someone else??). She was gathering ingredients for her homemade fruit cake and kept saying "I need dates". She said it a time or two before I replied with "You and me both!".
I shared that story via email with Lori tonight and included that apparently it is the southern dating desert in which I live, but somewhere we would find the promised land. Until then, life is grand and I love where I'm at! Life's too short to worry about that which we don't have. And we're so much more blessed than we ever realize.
