Heavy heart

My heart is so heavy tonight & I'm just plain sad for the passing of another friend from Randolph. I just know how is dear wife & family feels tonight & it hurts me to know they're hurting. If you guys from Randolph & the surrounding communities don't slow down on the dying end there's not going to be many left by the time I get home. I've been reliving lots of memories that Danny & I had with Charlie back in his younger years. He's helped us brand cows, roundup  & haul cattle back home & just come to the ranch to visit us. We've been snowmobiling  with him quite a few times or would run into him on our journey. I took the garbage out to the dumpster for the night, we have to take it out every night or the cockroaches take over the apartment, but there was an airplane beacon & that always brings to me a lonely feeling I think that some plane must be lost or gone astray in the thick dark clouds, the same with the sound of a Jake brake as a little girl I would be laying in bed at nights & could here them as they came around the bend in Woodruff & one more sound when we lived in California as a little girl when we heard the fog horns blow I would always think of some lost ship trying to find its way home. Well enough of lonely sounds but that's what's in my mind tonight. Sorry the elders came over & I didn't get this finished last night so I'll just close with a thought for today. "My God, I have never thanked you for my thorns. I have thanked you a thousand times for my roses, but never once for my thorns. Teach me the glory of the cross I bear; teach me the value of my thorns. Show me that I have climbed closer to you along the path of pain; show me that, through my tears, the colors of your rainbow look much more brilliant. Praise Him for your roses, thank Him for your thorns. When the going gets tough, the tough seek the Lord. My scripture is 2 Nephi 22: 2-3. Sorry to ramble but I felt like rambling last night but todays a new day however another day of clouds, rain & cool but I will go & do. Love Sister Putnam
