JULY 28, 2009

For Today...

Outside my window... sunny Florida day ....

I am thinking... how grateful I am my Dad is being treated at Mayo and how blessed we are to share these days together. How much I cherish my husband who seeks the Lord for our family and leads us just as the Lord so desires him to.

I am thankful for... my friend Lynne, who months ago (prior to my dads diagnosis) gave me a book by Dennis Rainey. "The greatest gift you can give your parents" It is giving a tribute to your parents in writing. I had started this for my dad prior to all of this and then the Lord had me back off because I began writing in fear of losing him, but last night I was prompted to get back to it and I finished it. I am now praying as to when I give this to my dad. I can't wait!

From the kitchen... lots of fish and veggies. Dad taught me how to make fish tacos.....oh my they are YUMMY!!

I am wearing... my pajama bottoms and shirt watching a movie with Dad. He is working from home today. He has been extremely fatigued lately.

I am reading... When Jesus speaks to your Sorrow by Nancy Guthrie, Take 2 by Karen Kingsbury, The Principle of the Path, and Leotta's Garden by Francine Rivers

I am hoping... my daughter gets her summer reading completed before school starts!! ;)

I am praying... for Alleluiahbelle (Happy Birthday today) and her husband Ron, Ellen, Mary, some friends back home and my husband and Dad. His fatigue is high and his cough has returned and is strong again due to reducing the steroids further this week.

Around the house... things are quiet. Dad is resting alot so we are watching alot of movies together. He has his own Blockbuster video storeright here at his house....seriously :)

One of my favorite things... SKYPING my family every night, seeing their sweet faces before I go to sleep is such a gift!!!

A few plans for the rest of the week... Dad lives right down the street from an outlet mall so I am going to go get some shorts for my husband and mail them to him. Dad has chemo on thurs along with radiation every day this week

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you..

These are flowers my Dad gave me this past Sunday :) aren't they gorgeous! He picked them out and put them together...just for me

love and blessings to you all!
