Well, as it should happen, this note of one of my dear children surfaced this evening as I was putting things away! It got me to giggling as I thought "what must people think I am teaching here in this home"! Thankfully, the second grader is responsible for this and not the seventh, ninth or eleventh grader. Perhaps the unit on Abraham Lincoln deserves a repeat visit to "clarify" some issues of misunderstanding! But for now, I'll just remember what good old Abe really stood for . . . according to a seven-year-old!
On another note, it has been asked of me when my upcoming CT scan is as referenced in the last post I made. It is scheduled for next Wednesday, June 23rd (the 41st birthday of my little sister). When I leave City of Hope from that long day, I should have results stating where I am concerning "cancer surveillance". At times, my mind can barely cope with the thoughts of what I've already heard three times before. What will I hear next Wednesday? Will I be "clean" . . . or will there be more cancer? The Lord knows and cares even more than I do about my cares. He is providing peace and calm in this rough sea. I just keep making trouble for myself as I focus upon my "issues" instad of focusing upon Him.
Should the Lord place it upon your heart, I would be most grateful for prayer for my family and me as we go through this necessary testing. My six-year-old cried to sleep last night wishing for mommy to not have anymore CT scans and doctor visits. Crushing words to my heart -- I didn't even know what a CT scan was until I was an adult. My five young blessings sure have had an unusual amount of stretching done to their faith. While I wouldn't have chosen this path, it is God's choosing . . . therefore it is perfect and okay!
Weekend - We have had a busy and great day! We went to Mimi's for breakfast this morning. I am thankful we have started branching out and trying to go out to eat...
