Good Friends and Huge Blessings!

Mr. and Mrs. Rabe of Creekside
Cottage
surprised me ...big time...
last night.

You see, today there will be some
required end of the year testing
at our church for several students.

Chelsea is one of these students.

Our evaluator is conducting this
testing and I will be the hostess
at the church for the visiting
student families.

Sunday, I had mentioned to Pastor Mike
that I would make sure that things
were vacuumed and in order for this
and all I can figure is that the
Rabes were paying attention and
heard me say this.

Whatever the case, last night Mrs. Rabe
called and said that they had taken care
of it. All was clean and ready.

With the events of yesterday, See prior post,
and the shock to our emotions
and schedule I was planning to
get up early and do it all
this morning.

I am so thankful for these dear friends
who not only figured out a way to get
our children to bowling yesterday
when I couldn't,
but thought about another practical way
to show their love and concern.

Happy sigh...

So, I sit here this morning tapping away
at the keyboard rather than rushing around
and then wrestling with an aging vacuum cleaner
and a toilet brush!

There is great news from Georgia, as well.
She has not needed the NG Tube that she so
dreads...so far. We pray this remains the
case. We saw her last evening and she looks
wonderful. The pain is gone. Now all she has
to do is be able to eat and drink normally.
This is usually a process. Usually they
introduce food slowly so she could
be in the hospital for another one to
three days.
We will see.

Thank you so much for your calls and prayers.
They mean so very much to us.

While you are at it, I just heard that my
dear Grandmother is very ill. I would
love prayer for her too. She lives several
hours away from us and it is bugging me that
I can't go help. My Aunt is taking great care
of her. Grandma is in very good hands.

Life...interesting!
Makes one very needy in just
moments...

I'm glad she's feeling better today. That must have been scary to have to call the ambulance.
That was so thoughtful of Aunt Deanna to go clean the church. I'm sure that took a load off your shoulders. I hope today goes smoother for you all.

What a blessing!

I am always happy to pray for grandmothers.

Now I must back up to see what I missed yesterday. I'm glad to know in advance that things have improved.

That is what good friends do. Save your life when you most need it. I'll pray for Grandma, too!
