Well, at least 24 hours from now I'll be leaving for the airport. Lots and lots to do today! Thank goodness I'm not obsessed with having a company-clean house to come home to. Well, let's be honest here - I don't even obsess about a company-clean house when I'm having company! This is the first fall trip we've ever taken that I can recall - we've either had someone in school or I was working for a school. I hope we can get to the East Coast soon, maybe next autumn --
Please stop over and visit Kristen to commiserate with her a bit. She needs your encouragement!
The timing of this trip could have been better - but who knew that 6 months ago?? Kristen's school schedule is so horrific - I don't want to worry about her while I'm gone, but I fear that I will. Because of that same schedule, I've had the kiddoes much more than normal, giving me very little time to concentrate on this speaking engagement I have two days from now. But I stayed up late last night and got it written out - now I have to time it to be sure I'm not keeping the ladies too long! Thank you for your prayers and support. As one friend said, I wish you could all be there!
PRAYER REQUEST! Again. If you go over and read Kristen's post, you'll find that once again poor little Feisty is suffering from the recurring nightmare of UTI - she has an appointment with a pediatric urologist - but it's a month away yet. It's unbelievable to me that 4-5 different doctors in the same clinic can see her over the past year, but only one have any good advice - and he hasn't seen her since the first occurrence. I really don't like not being able to see the same doctor every time you go in. It doesn't work well for continuity of treatment! Please pray that she doesn't have kidney damage, which is a possibility. Please pray for her little mind - she will also be seeing a psychologist to see if she's experienced something unthinkable which is causing this mental block against bowel movements. Just please pray for Feisty!
It turned out to be long for a post, but perhaps I can share my devotional with you as time goes by. It took the direction of the impact music has had on my journey through crisis - both the Psalms and songs written more recently that we sing in church and/or choir.
I need to get busy now - so I'll sign off and leave you with one adorable picture -
We'll be back late Saturday, the 18th. I'll catch you then!
