Sparkly Windows!

I have not nested since Brent was born in 1985.  I am nesting right now!  I’ve got my windows cleaned, taxes completed (almost), bills paid, groceries purchased, all of the important things I do as a manager of a household!  I need to take down some Christmas decorations today ~~ now that the snow has melted!

This week has been difficult, though, on so many levels.  As a Child of God, I KNOW the right things to say; I even know what Scripture to recite, but I am floundering as if my foundation is very shaky.  I had a moment of panic as I was driving to Praise Band practice yesterday… what if the anesthetic doesn’t take and I’m awake on the operating table??  I know that is very stupid, but that’s where my mind went.  Last night I dreamed that they had to cancel the operation because there was a “flood!”  That isn’t far-fetched, because we are under flood watches through Monday. 🙂 

I am finding it difficult to accept help from my daughter, Amanda.  She is coming to stay with me when I come home from the hospital.  I’m not sure why that is hard for me to do… I think because I’m used to being the Caregiver of those I love, not the other way around!  I am sure that I will be blessed and we won’t throttle each other in the week we spend together 🙂  I love her so much!

I have my DVD player, a David Jansen “Peter Ompir” art DVD set, two books, my Ipod, Bible and notebook, a new pair of slippers, some pajamas, and my robe, ready for my next adventure.  I am looking forward to Tuesday ~~ and the road to recovery!

I know that I know that I know ~~ in my brain!  Now I need to “know” in my heart!  I will continue to move forward and try to figure this out!  I have no profound statements, spiritual nuggets to impart.  I am simply a flawed human being, who is a Child of The King!
