Hi Sherry,

It feels nice to read from you, though I am unhappy to learn about your granddad health issues.
On my side I just learned yesterday that my grandmother broke her wrist. Her bones are getting more and more fragile with years, she has osteoporosis (does this make sense in English?). In a word her bones are almost as fragile as crystal but there's nothing we can do to make her leave her farm and live in a safer, less isolate place. Nevertheless I firmly believe it would kill her quicker than old age health problems. She has this feeling of belonging there, plus she needs her nature and animals around - she is not one to live in a city and to accept being taken care of while she can still cope by herself.

Your piece of writing about your granddad just made me think of her and how after she had broken her collar bone, she would NOT accept it when doctors said she would need a stick to walk. She does not use one actually. Stubborness might not be a virtue, but it does help recovering! Lol

I wish you and your granddad and family all the best.
And I have a saying for you. It says "C'est dans la sécheresse qu'on connait une bonne source, et dans l'adversité ses amis". This one is about friends, but I guess it applies to family even more. Family folks are the ones that are around through difficult times, however loose your bounds are the rest of the time.

Wishing you a lovely Christmas season, and sending hugs and kisses from Southern France,

Stéphanie

Hey Sherry---

Sounds like your travels took you right where you belong...with your family.

In these tough economic times, it seems like all families are "pulling together" in order to make it through.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a healthy and prosperous New Year!

Much love,

Julie
