This sky was so amazing. God the great artist!

During the days I waited on tests results and doctor calls, the one thing I realized (well, I realized many things) is what a gift it is to be here with my family. To be ABLE to put hair in pony tales and take kids to school. The mundane things I do everyday are now blessings to me. I am grateful for everything now. I thought I was grateful before but I really didn't totally "get it". It is an honor to be here and each day is a blessing.
I am going to be fine. My surgery to remove the benign tumor is Tuesday. I will be in the hospital a few days but I will be fine. I would not trade this experience because I have learned so much and value everything a little more.
I am thankful for all of my friends too. I have felt your prayers and I have felt your support!
Thank you God for everything!
I am praying for the family of my high school friend Jackie VanStory who died in a car wreck on Wednesday. He will be greatly missed and please pray for his young sons and his wife.
I am praying for my friend Kara Bennett and her family. Kara lost her dad last night.
Please God, grant these families peace that only you can give, please give them a blanket of peace during these difficult times. Please love on them a lot.
Life is fragile, embrace everyday

I want to write but I am not completely sure what I want to say
not real sure how to put my feelings accurately into words
sometimes life can teach lessons in ways we wish it wouldn't
knock us in the head by what we have done wrong
then we have to look at ourselves and reflect on what we
can do right the next time to make things better
to be what God wants us to be

It is so funny how life continually gives us new perspectives, new starts.
God teaches us daily and is gracious enough to give us all time to use the changes in our lives.
If you are feeling alone today, please remember tomorrow is a new day. We are not alone, we have God and he gives us angels in our lives daily. Cherish the moments......

My MRI went good today. I am waiting on the results. I am also waiting on the rabbit. It is time for her to come feed her babies and I like to watch from the window. It is a blessing and a message at the same time. :)

I want to write but all of my mixed emotions right now make it difficult for me to find exactly what I want to say.
Today, Dexter (my little man-dog) was outside with my Mom. He was going crazy with his nose to the ground. My mom went to see what was making him freak. There was a hole in the ground, in our back yard right under the kitchen window. My mother stuck her hand in the hole (she is brave, hehe) and felt fur. There were baby rabbits in the hole! We have been keeping Dexter away hoping that the mommy rabbit returns.
As I was sitting her staring out the window trying to think of what I want to write, the mother rabbit appeared right under my window. She went to the hole and sat over it and nursed the baby rabbits. She took care of them for a while and ran away again.
This is a message from God for me, I see how he takes care of me and I have to to trust him like the baby rabbits trust that their mom will feed them. It is all about having faith.
My MRI is tomorrow at 3. The doctor gave me Valium to take 30 min before because it is a closed MRI and I'm not sure if I would freak out or not. Please send up a prayer for me if you think of it.

Please pray for all of the people who have lost their homes or have had severe damage to their homes from the flooding here in TN. Nashville is flooded, my dad's office flooded, there are still thousands without electricity. In Murfreesboro, a lot of people have damage and most do not have flood insurance because they don't live in flood zones.
We are blessed to only have a leak but I am praying for everyone else.
