Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

We had Inklings mother and father here for Thanksgiving day. Her mother had a breast removed a couple of weeks ago because of cancer. Her dad can't drive long distances or at speeds above 40 so she drove over and back. It made me hurt for her just thinking about the drive but she never complained one bit.

I think she's a lot frailer than she wants anyone to know--BUT--She's Tuff Enuf.

I called her the other day and she seemed to be doing pretty good. I bet she hurts as bad as anyone else that had that done, she just doesn't complain much. I'm so grateful that they got it all, though. I want my grandparents to be around for many years to come!

I'm glad they came!

MJ made the comment that she's doing really well considering everything, and Grandma said "Well its been TWO WEEKS!!" As though that is a really long time! She's doing really good though! It was good to see them!
