A Grateful Innkeeper

Update: 8/2/11 Armida passed away the thirteen hours after I played the guitar and sang to her. She entered into eternal rest  Monday, at 12:55 p.m.  I'm thankful I was able to be with her and her family, Sunday.  I will miss her; but, she lives on, within the memory of all those who were fortunate to know her.  She no longer suffers from the vicious disease of cancer.

     Sunday night I performed for two hours, without stop, playing the guitar and singing in Armida's bedroom. Usually, when I perform, my sets don't last longer than 45 minutes, then I take a break.

    Armida is heavily sedated with morphine and unconscious. I'll write more about my experience Sunday, when I'm not tired, which I am, at this moment.

My gratitudes for today:

1. I'm thankful for the many who drop by the inn, each day. I look forward to getting to know you. I'm grateful for the community we share.
2. Visitors from Indonesia and Argentina, dropped by today. Welcome. I hope to see you again. I'm thankful for the growing readership taking place, here.

3.  My son Josiah accompanied me when I serenaded Armida, last night. I enjoyed our teamwork and us singing together. We were together for several hours, before and after we ministered to Armida and her family.
4. I'm happy that I'm seeing my vision being fulfilled, a bit at a time, but it's getting there.
