Driving Miss Daisy~ Take 2

We have safely delivered Yo Yo the cat to the Animal Hospital. He has thyroid tumors that are cancer. They feel it was caught early and he should make a complete recovery. He had radioactive therapy through an IV and he went through the procedure just fine. I am happy for Miss Billie ~she was worried her beloved Yo would not make it. As frail as the cat is I was a bit worried myself.

It was smooth sailing and even though the old gold Caddy is vintage she still gives a comfortable ride that only a Caddy can give. Miss Billie did well considering. She began to drip with tears as we left Yo there for 5 days. However~ she assured me that there was something blooming that had her allergies in a tizzy. All is safe in sound until the next time.

I truly do sometimes feel like I am in a movie as we take our journeys. She says the funniest things and she keeps me laughing all the time. She has such a funny side to her. I learn something of value almost every time we spend time together. I think I have just fallen head over heels for my Friend~Miss Billie. We both have birthdays in May. Our favorite color is yellow. We love gardening but roses are our favorite. We both seem to think our way is the best way . Somewhere inside I think maybe she and I ~though we are generations apart~ are cut from the same mold. Yes~I believe God loves Miss Billie so much that he sent a 4o some year old version of herself to bring her to Jesus.

To think all she has witnessed in her 85 years~so many changes. Yet to her it seems like only yesterday that she was a child roller skating down Ashland Avenue. Just another reason to cherish the moments~for they soon will be memories to treasure.

We have had a really bad winter in our part of Missouri. Miss Billie hates winter and gloomy days. In fact on rainy days she gets quite contrary! It snowed from November to March with many gloomy days in between. SO~a couple of weeks ago we were driving Yo to the Vet in our hometown and I said, "Oh it is just so beautiful, the trees are budding, the tulips and daffodils are beautiful the lilacs are in full bloom~it is just a beautiful spring." To which Miss Billie replies, " Well we certainly deserve it." You just have to imagine the same attitude that Jessica Tandy has in the movie is Billie's real life attitude.

Thank you for all your comments and prayers~ all is well.

Thankful Tuesday~ Another Episode Of Driving Miss BIllie

This morning I am driving Miss Billie in her vintage ~like new Cadillac~ to Overland Park, Ks to take her beloved cat~who has Cancer and needs treatment~ to the Hospital. So if you happen to see an antique Caddy, (huge I might add) an 85 year old Miss Billie with a big hair lady driving down the highway~just know it is me driving Miss Billie.

If you would have asked me to take on this task of loving Miss Billie a year ago I would have gracefully declined. But I know God has placed me in Billie's life to lead her to the saving knowledge of Jesus. Can I ask all you Godly blog friends to pray? My time is running out. Gotta run~ while you are on your knees please pray the antique Caddy makes it all the way.

Miss Billie believes the cat will feel more at home in her own car!

I really am blessed and feel very thankful for this wonderful life I live. Walking in the will of God is the greatest job in all the world~

Thank You Lord~

As the world looks upon me, as I struggle along
They say I have nothing, but they are so wrong
In my heart I'm rejoicing, how I wish they could see
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

There's a roof up above me
I've a good place to sleep
There's food on my table
And shoes on my feet
You gave me your love Lord
And a fine family
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

Now I know I'm not wealthy, and these clothes , they're not new
I don't have much money, but Lord I have you
And to me that's all that matters, though the world cannot see
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me
