It feels nice to be sitting here for a few minutes with some peace and quiet while all 3 children are sleeping! As much as I love my kids, I really enjoy this part of my day too! I honestly do not know how people make it through the day with non-nappers...i only have so much patience.
Anyhow, here are a few of the random thought going on in my head this afternoon.
1. I hate cancer. I worked last night on the cancer unit. I took care of the sweetest man, in his fifties, in the middle of a 3 year fight against it. He looked so old after being through so much. Finding out only last week he will be a grandfather made him light-up, but there was definiltely fear and uncertainty in his eyes as well. My grandma died of cancer when I was in 6th grade, and my husband lost his mom to cancer 6 years ago, but this is the closest I have come to it. Cancer really scares me, and i feel like I am waiting for the day that it strikes me so much more closely than it has. I am thankful that I serve an Almighty God, but I know my faith will truly be tested if that day comes.
2. If you are thinking about coming to the seminar on dealing with difficult people at our church tomorrow, then COME! There will be a great speaker and great food and a great opportunity to share with the community what we have going on at Grace.
3. I am consistently being reprimanded by my daughter about my manners. I find it quite aggravating, but also hilarious and sweet. "What do you say, Mom?" and "That's not nice, Mom!" are the phrases I heard today. When I hear her singing her Bible Verse songs to herself as she plays, it truly makes me want to cry and burst with laughter all at once.."Do to ossers, do to ossers, as you would has them do to you..."
4. I am feeling so behind in every area of life right now (i.e. cleaning, organizing, taxes, organizing, thank-you notes, phone calls, organizing, taxes, etc.) that I really should go make some good use of my time!
