Saturday post not done due to Moma being taken out to eat and a movie. I just forgot. We saw the movie "Hoot" at the Rave - it was clean and cute, but my crew thought it was rent worthy but not a go an see show. Afterwards, we ate at Albasha Lebanese Rest. on Bluebonnet. I can eat some Lebanese food! That is one meal I have lived to regret, but boy was it good going down. And it did stay down, and stayed and stayed. It took me till Sunday evening to return to a feeling of normalcy. The cramping was on/off throughout the day - even during the Church service it was hitting pretty hard. (It was a wonderful service in honor of mothers. Pastor gave a good message.) Robin thinks it is due to the chemo on Friday - hiccups on Sat. and then cramping on Sunday following the chemo - there is a pattern so far. Crackers and water is a good remedy. But it could always be worse.
I have the best mother a son could hope or wish for. Ask anyone who knows her and they can testify of her love for people and life, her patience and character. She loves her husband, children and grandchildren. Oh, that the world have millions more like her.
I have the wife God gave to me. The one I chose. Sometimes I wonder about His sense of humor and then I see His wisdom in all things. She has been a blessing to so many and I have been able to partake in that blessing over the past 18 years. She has been my anchor and rock, especially during these past 5 months. She sasses me too much and is bossy, but I wouldn't have her any other way. She keeps me on the straight and narrow. And lest I forget the two most wonderful and beautiful children a man could have, she has given to me. I am blessed.
Pray for your mother that she would be blessed and be able to enjoy the years God has given and is giving her.
Please remember to pray for Michael H., Jill H., Christi W., Lloyd Kogel – all battling cancer and/or recovery and little Austin Barber (waiting for a heart/lung transplant). For Robin's cousin Barbara, still adjusting to her new small bowel transplant, that God would strengthen her body and spirit and for a return to normalcy. And also for me, that the chemo would do the job and that I would do my part as God oversees the whole of it all.
One more week of school! Have a great week and be a blessing. GW
