There was a knock on my door very early this morning. I scrambled to put on some clothes and answer the door. It is strange how Maggie knows who are friend or foe at the door. She jubilantly did her happy dance and started to whine.
I opened the door and was so surprised. "Oh, thank you Lord!" I said at the sight of Joyce. "Come here and give me a big hug!"
"How are you feeling?" I then asked.
"Oh, I am okay," she said sheepishly. "I still have delusions about God."
"You look well," I replied. "I love your new hair-do!"
"Will you do me a favor?" Joyce asked. "Help me remember to take my nightly medications."
"I will call you after Dad leaves at night," I told her.
She didn't stay long. You could tell she was still shaky. I am just overjoyed she is home though. Joyce is such a outgoing and gregarious person and makes living next to her interesting. She promised me a fried chicken and turnip greens supper soon. I can't wait!
