Depressed and even bitter

Thursday 4-4-57

Dearest John:

Just a note – you may not even get this before you leave. In case you do, why don’t you stay over until Saturday a.m. in case your folks do get in on Friday. They might, for a rehearsal. We’ve been praying for them in this stormy weather.

About groceries – some of the usual things: oleo, cereal, etc. Nothing special that I’m out of that I can remember. Clothes starch.

If you have a spare minute (!) stop at Millers and tell them I’m getting a dinner ready, something quick since there is a rally in the afternoon. Already have rolls made and in the freezer. Making apple sauce, etc. They need not bring anything.

So glad to hear from you yesterday — I’ve been sorta down all week, physically, which makes me depressed…and even bitter, I’m ashamed to say, for the first time this winter.

If you must make a decision concerning this summer now, then go ahead and do it. The Lord will work things out and I’m praying here. Psalm 48:14 [For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.]

So glad Dean is coming. Banquet is 6:30. I sent a card to him.

Now I’ll close – all our love, it is so good to count on seeing you again soon. Lots of hugs and kisses saved us to deliver then.

Nellie
