I wasn't sure what I was going to write about today...
Or if I would even write.
It's been one of those days.
Rainy - which I love, but it does put one in a reflective mood.
At least me.
I'm trying so very hard to not look at what I can't do, but what I can and be grateful for that.
Today I sent my girls out the door - and they were getting a little wild, so I'll admit I was ready to let them run at Grandma's house - with instructions for them to stop at the store and find a present for a party Karis was going to.
The very first friends birthday party she had been invited to.
She was beside herself with excitement.
I wanted so badly to be the one to buy the gift with her.
To wrap it and drop her off at the party.
But I just don't feel up to it.
Self pity came knocking and I had to do a bit of praying and crying before I could look at the positives of having a wonderful sister who would do all that for me so Karis could enjoy her day.
That place was eventually arrived at, but I'd be lying if I said it was easy and that a few tears don't still occasionally slip out.
One more thing... could you pray for a friend of mine? I just read minutes ago that her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.
That news would always make me sad before, but now I know... I know just how hard all of this is hitting them and how hard the journey will be.
Pray that they will feel God holding them close through all of this.
My cry is that God will heal her, and her grandbabies will be able to enjoy their grandma for a very long time!
