Life Is Wonderful

It’s a wonderful time of year and everything is wooing up roses!!  Norman got his driver’s license today with out a hick-cup.  He was so proud of himself and can’t wait to show Dr Davenport the license.  The doctors would not promise the operation would make the difference so Norman has been on pins and needles for several months now so it was even sweeter when he passed the eye test on the first try.  Of course he does have a restriction on the license, he has to have side mirrors because of the no central vision in his right eye but that he has had for 20 years.

Patty comes home tomorrow.  She says Phil is doing great and recovering great.  So we have all had our Christmas miracle and have no other requests. No we will pray for others and thank everyone who sent prayers our way.  Have a great day.  PS  I got my Florida license also and didn’t have to take a road test!!

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.

    Hooray! I am so excited for Dad, as driving is such an important part of life. This is a real success and I am glad for you both. And thank you for the good news about Phil- I am sure that recovery will be long but it sounds like a good start.

    Looking forward to seeing you early next year. We are still traveling and will be home 12/11. Trip is fun, and Morocco was a blast. Now we are in Italy and enjoying the good food! Love to all the family.
