Watch the three videos here, on Kester's blog. Watch all three...and be prepared to do some thinking...
P.S. Home from the hospital. (HOME! What a wonderful word.) Sat down last night to make a list of all the kindnesses shown to me since this awful surgery was announced...and hardly made a dent. Jesi's parents praying for me in Africa, our preacher showing up with a 4-pack of bath tissue when he heard I was doing the colon prep (he also prayed with us and helped me celebrate the liquid portion of the Lord's Supper), flowers, food, visits, phone calls, dog chewies for my babies (thanks, Carol!) and so much more.
Can you imagine having so many nice things done for you that you have a hard time remembering them all to make a list? My cup runneth over...and my heart is so happy. As long as I don't look down at the staples holding my tummy together, all is WONDERFUL!
Karen and her girls (Team Nightingale) are the ones you want caring for you in an emergency. They are patient and kind and go the extra mile to make me feel special. What a blessing!! Oh, and Kirsten? I feel sorry for anyone who doesn't have a friend like Kirsten. She can do anything. She and Libby can make things happen by sheer force of will!
Time to take a shower and try to walk a little...friends are bringing me SOUP, the world's best food, for lunch.
God bless us, every one!
