My mother told me over the phone that she "misses my Blog" and that's always a good indication that I haven't been on here enough. And I don't really have one specific excuse for my absence--there's been a lot going on in my world and my head is full. Now for most writers, that's when they sit down and hit the keys, but I don't really operate that way. I like to have a clear head when I'm putting thoughts on paper. I have some people in my life that I love very much that are going through difficult times and it weighs heavy on me. It's hard when you can't do anything to help except pray, but I do believe in the power of prayer and praying I am!!! I went to bed feeling sad and heavy hearted last night and woke up feeling worse. My husband who is traveling called me before I even got out of bed this morning. I told him how I was feeling and he was sweet--even made me laugh a lot! And then this afternoon an unexpected beautiful bouquet of flowers arrived on my doorstep with a note that said "I love you--I hope you're having a better day." It was such a sweet gesture and it meant so much to me. My husband is not the "flowers" type and those efforts don't come easy for him, so it meant a great deal to me. I appreciated it SO much!! I was getting ready for our Church Small Group at our house tonight, baking a cake and cleaning house when the doorbell rang and there was another package. It contained the most beautiful stationery I have ever seen with a note from a girlfriend that said "I saw these at the store and they made me think of you; they were pretty & sweet--just like you." I just beamed. I couldn't believe how loved I felt on a day when I woke up feeling so sad. The strange thing is that this girlfriend hadn't spoken to me and didn't know just how much I needed that pick me up...that's what I call a God Wink! I could keep rambling on about some more thoughts but Laine has just come downstairs to climb in my bed with growing pains and tears to go with, so mommy duty calls... GoodNight Friends!
