Just a quick post to update on life. I went to the Dr. today. He says the X-rays look fine, so my therapy will focus on muscles, tendons, ligaments injured in the accident. I can’t drive for a little while, which cancels a trip to Dallas to see my Sis in law, and my Dad won’t get to celebrate his latest great granddaughter’s first birthday. He’s not a happy camper, & threatened to drive himself. (Gen and I now know that this is truly just a threat because he wants to still be in control of his life, but knows he can’t be) Anyway, I do feel horrible, but just driving over to Dad’s house cause much stiffening of my neck and shoulders, and it’s just a 15 minute drive!
My sweet Daddy is legally blind, and just doesn’t know how to be anything but in control of his own life! When I get aggravated with him, I just put myself in his place, and somehow I am humbled and ashamed of my attitude!
Pamela has really had the rug pulled out from under her. I won’t go into all the details, but because of her surgery, she was URGED to drop out of the nursing program. She had to change majors, so she is now a Bible major with a Youth Ministries/Education emphasis.
She is really being brave, and is trusting that the Lord has a reason for all this. My heart is broken, and I wish I could make it all better. Then I think, “Do I really believe I am a better parent than her Heavenly Father?!” So I weep with the pain of seeing my child hurting, then cling tightly to our Father’s hand.
Bill has really been under alot of pressure lately. After burying a beloved dog and horse Labor Day Weekend, his wife being injured in a car accident, and having all the junk that goes along with insurance adjustors, he is exhausted. Please pray for him. He has many decisions to make, and really desires wisdom from the Lord during this time.
I have been home more lately than I have been in a long time. I feel Emily’s pain somewhat in that I am a “go-er” and am forced to stay. So, when I can work with my hands again, I am going to do my spring cleaning in the fall! The White Elephant Sale (a community garage sale) is Saturday, and I am going to clean out EVERYTHING! (This is a big dream—–let me believe it for at least a little while!)
God bless your day!
