Lawn mower Issues, Our Neighbor and Friends

Thursday, May 18, 2017

Feel like screaming right mow; we had to order a lawn mower from Walmart and put it together ourselves. Well we found out that the company shafted us on the washers for the wheels. Now we had to take the washers off of the old one to have enough. and we are having trouble getting a bolt off of the one side right now. The guy who gave us the old one really put it on tight. Our grass is really growing too and it has been raining nearly every day. emoticon

Our neighbor has become more reclusive and is no help right now. We are praying for him to give it over to God. We know he is hurting but we know from experience it helps to talk about it. Simply trying to avoid it or keep busy does not always help; because your body might be busy yet your mind keeps going over things. Years ago my sister lost her husband to Leukemia. She was only 48 like me and she did not know how to drive either. She had to move from a two bedroom apartment to a single one after he died. Plus learn how rto drive and get a job. She got one at Rennes East where I went afterwards. She was a laundry person and then she was supposed to train others besides. She ended up having a nervous breakdown. We are worried our neighbor will end up like that the way he is. Please pray for him; he needs God.

One of our friends came over with a card for Mother's Day and my birthday on Sunday. She is a year older than I am. She talks like she wants to get together again but after the last time I am not sure. Are they changing their attitudes or not? I need people around me but not if her husband goes on another tirade about dogs. I guess it is in God's hands right now.

    That's bad luck with the mower, I would have taken it back and had it replace

    I'd be inclined to get on the phone over the lawnmower, but if you have spares- well at least you have a working mower. Hopefully it will be dry there soon, meanwhile we've been desperate for rain for crops and gardens and have had a deluge these past 3 days emoticon

    Prayers for your neighbour.

    AND as for your friend.........give her a chance eh? If the worst happens again you have your answer emoticon

    Have a great weekend Laura emoticon

    All any of us can do is make the best of our situation is in life. I have brand that by thinking positive we are more likely to have a positive outcome then when we think negative because them everything becomes a negative in our lives.

    Sounds like my kind of day. Give it to God. Yet I don't know where you are because I would actually come help.
