Well, the last few days have been somewhat a blur for me. At the beginning of the week I began preparing my body for surgery on Tuesday. Needless to say, this was not the fun part. Bright and early Tuesday morning we made our way to the hospital to be checked in. If you would like more surgery details, please feel free to call or email me. Once we arrived back home on Wednesday, I was greeted by my wonderful parents. My mom had prepared some homemade potato soup for me and it was delicious. I am often reminded how much as an adult that I still need my mom and dad. I loved having them here. My mom is so good to take care of the household stuff and of course my dad provides a lot of humor. Today I decided to read and ended up in Psalm 117 - the shortest Psalm. It says:

"Praise the Lord, all nations; Laud Him, all peoples!
For His lovingkindness is great toward us,
And the truth of the Lord is everlasting.
Praise the Lord!"

This reminded so much of the Lord's love for His children and how He cares for us through others. My husband has been absolutely wonderful - always at my side and very helpful. Sometimes our guys don't know always what to do, but he has been there to help in whatever way needed. Also, my dear parents, as I said were wonderful. We have received so much love from our friends at church - meals, flowers, phone calls, visits, etc. The Lord is so kind to bless our lives with wonderful friends and family. I am grateful for all of you! I still have a some more time to go recovering and hope to focus more of the Lord's lovingkindness to me and my family.
