You see, we are having a party at our house tomorrow night. A little shin-dig for our sweet AggieSarah who is getting her Aggie Ring tomorrow. If I were an Aggie it would be appropriate to whoop at this point. But I'm not.....you can, though!
We tend to let things slide from day to day, so there is nothing like 25 people you don't really know coming to your house to get you in the sprucing up mood! It will be fun and I am so proud of Sarah!
On another note I have been hit hard by medical news this week. Another reminder that I am, indeed, a grown-up. One of #1's former teachers and just a sweet sweet woman has cancer. Full blown, stage IV, to the bones breast cancer. It simply breaks my heart. I spent all of Monday in tears thinking of this dear family and of the possible outcomes. I am praying for a miracle and for complete healing. And for strength and endurance in the meantime.
My husband's dentist's 14 yr old son had a tumor removed from his spine last week. The biopsy results came back and they weren't good. I can't even let my imagination go there.
A friend from Sunday School was diagnosed with MS this week. She might be just a few years older than me, but not much. She has three good looking boys and a good looking husband to match. I don't know many details and I am thankful that there wasn't something fatally wrong with her. However, it is a life time disease and as I have heard my friend Becky struggle alongside her sister, it is not an easy illness.
All this to say, we are blessed. I know God never promises good health. And I realize that often during our darkest, hardest moments is when we see His face the clearest. However, it is so hard. Just really hard.
I hope you have had better news this week.
