Tomorrow's the day

I've got the grandkids one more day today. I'll take them to pick up their other grandmother at the airport and then I'll take them all to Christy's. Kyle and Christy are going to get in from Austin and the NYWC this evening.

Then I come home and clean and then relax. Tomorrow I have to be at the hospital at 5:30am! Surgery is at 7:30. I've got 3 weeks of no youth group, no grandkids and many folks making sure I rest!

I know the yg is in very capable hands. And Dottie will be watching Christy's kids and Ally. (she's wonderful!) So, all I have to do is let myself rest. Why does that scare me a bit?

I am spending today reminding myself that God's in control. He guides the surgeon's and the anesthesiologist's hands. He guides the youth group. He doesn't need me and it's okay to rest.

have no regrets

I just heard that the son of a dear friend was hit by a car today. The damage was so extensive to his head that there is no possibility of recovery. The family has said good-bye to him and they will be harvesting any of his organs for donation.

He is Kylene's age. It all happened so fast.

I don't ever want to miss a chance to tell people how much I love them. I don't want to get so caught up in me that I don't see those around me and realize how precious family and friends are. And how quickly they can be gone.

My heart is aching for my friend and her family. You can't make things better. You can't say just the right words to take away the pain. I will pray for her, that God will be her comfort and walk with her through this dark, dark valley.
