Bryan's MeMaw

Please pray for Bryan's MeMaw. She had a stroke this past Sunday. Thankfully she has regained some usage of her left arm and leg and can talk, although it comes slowly at times. MeMaw is very special to Bryan. He and MeMaw share the same birthday. On October 9th, she will be 85!!! She is the only living grandparent Bryan has left. She will be in some intense rehab so please pray all will go well and she will have a great attitude during this time. Please pray for Bryan's dad as he will be making some tough decisions over the next few days.

When I asked Bryan what he wanted to eat for his birthday dinner on Thursday he said he would like Beans, Cornbread, and Fried Potatoes from his MeMaw, which just about made me cry a flood last night as MeMaw's days of cooking for all of us are no more. I will try my best, but I'm sure it will not compare!!

I've had a great week last week but I just haven't had a chance to blog much. I will try to catch up soon. Stay tuned!!

Happy Birthday Bryan!
I love La Baguette! Their cakes are the best.
I'm also a big fan of beans, cornbread & fried potatoes. It looked mighty good on his plate.

I'm so sorry about his memaw. I'll keep her in my prayers.
