Joy in the Small Things–Christmas Eve, Wednesday, December, 24, 2014

GiftThe elevator called and asked if Terry wanted to bring in all the rest of his corn…they were a tad short and could use it—the catch was it has to be there before December 31st.

“You bet’ya! And Thank YOU!”  Terry replied and headed out the door.

We loaded up the truck in a bright (YAY FOR SUNSHINE) brittle cold, with a freezing wind straight off the snowbanks.

But who is complaining?  This year’s crop all sold THIS year!

Thank you for your concern for Rick and his sister’s.  It will be a hard Christmas this year for them.  Yet, also a blessing—no longer is Rick in any pain.  The funeral will be Monday.

Everything always works out for the best, my Momma used to say.  And you know what? I do believe she is right!

Merry Christmas my friends!

  1. Sorry about your friend –but like you said, he is out of pain and definitely in a better place. God Bless the Family.

    SO glad you can get rid of the corn… That is AWESOME…

    Merry Christmas to you and the family.


  2. That once a year paycheck is nice to have. I know your Christmas will be delightful with your children and grandchildren gathered round.

    I will be a guest this year instead of the hostess for the first time. I am planning on enjoying myself and adjusting to the change.


  3. Rick was blessed to have friends and family to look out for him. You are blessed to have your corn sold by the end of the year. This is turning out to be quite the blessed Christmas on your Colorado farm. 🙂


  4. Good for you on the corn delivery. There was a huge corn crop this year in the mid-west and most of it is in the bin, or sold. Say Linda, if you could, would you please share some sunshine with me here in SW Iowa? If I’m not mistaken we have had but one afternoon of mostly sun since American Thanksgiving. Lotsa fog though, if you wanta trade…LOL
    Have a good day tomorrow, remembering the birth of the Saviour. Merry Christmas to you and yours. JJ


  5. Oh yea! How cool was that phone call!!! Sold corn is the absolute best kind, well almost. (Last summer’sweet corn… yum!)
    I am so very sorry about your neighbor and friend. And you are right, free… Sending blessings to his family and friends.


  6. Yes, I beleve your Momma is right. For all the sadness at the loss, there’s the realization that there will be no more pain and suffering. Can’t say that’s easy and certainly not at this time of year. My condolences.
