I am currently in Houston with my daughter helping her back to good health!!
She has been showing great improvement each day....until today. :(
Last night, she felt something "pop" around her ribs and is in terrible pain this morning. She didn't sleep the rest of the night, so I have her situated on the sofa, with a heating pad, and she has fallen back to sleep.
To keep things quiet for a while, I decided to update the blog.
However, I am only up for random bullet points...
** So hard on a mom to see your children hurting...no matter the age.
** Today I am very grateful for MY mom, who knew I needed to be with Alyssa and flew me here...see first bullet point.......I love her.
** I'm sad because this set back may cause Alyssa to miss something she has been looking forward to today.
** on a positive note, I got to visit my favorite place in Houston....Trader Joes!!! I'm sure I will be going back again before I leave...good thing there is room in my suitcase! Come on Arkansas...get with the program and get a Trader Joes!!
** I am currently enjoying a cup of pumpkin coffee (from TJs)
** Alyssa and I carved pumpkins yesterday...
You are never too old to enjoy this!!!
Then I roasted the seeds......so good!!
** Steve and I have been fixing up the house, getting it ready to sell, and my thoughts right now are...why didn't we do all this sooner so WE could enjoy it!!! :/
** Steve's mom has been back in the hospital with congestive heart failure but is now back in rehab. She's had a rough go of it the last 4 months and we are praying for strength to get back home and good health
** Even with all these "things" going on in our life....I am so very grateful that my God sees it all and walks it with me. I still have His grace and mercy that I don't deserve. And no matter what mountain or storm I face....I trust Him. He is my light in the darkness.
I love what Andrew Murray says in Waiting on God....
We have not to care for the light we need for our day's work; the sun cares and provides and shines the light around us all the day. We simply count upon it, and receive it, and enjoy it.
Today I choose to enjoy the sun of God's presence in my life...
...and the peace He brings!
I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in His word do I hope. My soul waiteth for the Lord. More than they that watch for the morning: more than they that watch for the morning. Psalm 130:5-6
