Off to the Little Rock today

I'll need the patience of a Saint, which I don't have, and nerves of steel, which are lacking, and decent directions, which I hope are not lost, because today I'm taking James's elderly aunt to see a doctor in Little Rock. I've been more than a little moody lately so I have hopes that today is not one of her major whining days.

This lady was on her death bed just one year ago but only 3 months or so after rising she managed to alienate nearly every one of her close family members and tried to run over her daughter who was blocking the drive-way to keep her from escaping to the casino in a car she wasn't supposed to be driving.

The lady might weigh 100 lbs when she's dripping wet.

Please, Lord, forgive me of my tresspasses prior to actually doing them, I'm going to need all the help I can get today.

From the sounds of this, you ARE a saint!! Hope all goes well. I'm sure if there are any trespasses, you will be forgiven. :)

be careful in Little Rock...that interstate is crazy...I've only driven it once on the way to TX and got caught in a torrential rain storm!!

Wow, I either hear more stories about people doing something questionable to get to/from a casino, or the people I know are just crazy.

I think its comendable to go visit a relative who can be less than gracious about it. God bless.
