Friday's Feast, Prayer and 2 Birthdays

I have a prayer request for y'all - or to send positive thoughts if prayer isn't your thing. At 545 this morning Emily is going in the the hospital for minimally invasive surgery. She is having to have tubes put in her ears since the 4 (yes 4) oral rounds of antibiotic and 2 injection antibiotics have not sufficiently cleared the ear infection she has been dealing with since before Christmas. The infection is gone but the fluid is still there causing the eardrums to become rigid and it has caused a 30 decible hearing loss, which we are praying is temporary and can be resolved with the tubes. She also has sleep apnea that causes her to stop breathing for expended periods of time when she snores or when her nose is clogged and so will be having her adenoids removed. All minor surgery but she has never had anesthesia before so we don't know exactly what is going to happen as in will there be any negative reaction to what they give her, will it not work like it should and she wake up in the middle of surgery, will she get sick from it? Etc.

Second, I have two VERY SPECIAL birthdays to celebrate today!

My very dearest friend, MC is *thirthysomethingolderthanme* today! For those of you regular blog readers of mine, you know how very important MC is to me. She is the absolute, hands down, best friend anyone could ask for. She is the sister I always wanted. I love her dearly and she is as much a part of my family as my mom and Emily are.


The X's sister, who is the most lovely person ever(!) is *twentysomethingyoungerthanme* today as well. She and her husband live in Houston and I miss them terribly. She is a sweet and kind and silly as she is pretty. I couldn't ask for a better aunt for Emily!

Both of these women are big blessings in my life!

And lastly...

It's the Friday's Feast!

What are you proud of?

I guess it would be getting through the past few years with all the tragedies/stressful experiences happening as well as I have and not ending up with some sort of a breakdown or an alcoholic by reaching for the bottle to escape like so many do.

What is the best thing you’ve ever won as a prize?

When I win it, I'll let you know.

Name something you do that is a waste of time.

Procrastinate...a lot.

Main Course
In what year of your life did you change the most?

I'd have to say 2005-2006. I've done a lot of changing spiritually, emotionally and mentally for the better instead of getting bogged down in the continual games with the X. When I made the decision to finally file for divorce after 2 years of separation it was like a huge weight had lifted off of my soul and I started to get my life back.

Where is a place you consider to be very tranquil?

Summer in the mountains, nobody around, lying on your back in the grass and listening to the wind through the trees, hearing the birds sing and feeling the cool breeze mingling with the warmth from the sun on my skin.

Have a great weekend and thanks again for your prayers for the outcome of Emily's surgery today!

Hi Nic! You have my word to keep Emily in prayer until she has complete healing in Jesus' name. :)
