Things didn't run as smoothly as I would like this morning but then something happened at the grocery store that helped me put things into perspective......Thank the Lord I ran out of bread this morning!!! As I was standing in line a lady came up behind me...now this lady was someone I waved to every morning when I dropped my girls at school....I didn't know her name but I recognized her face. As we were talking she gave me an update on a young wife and mother we all have been praying for....she has cancer, a very fast growing terminal cancer....she was not expected to last the night and if she did would be having surgery to give her enough time to say goodbye to her family. My heart aches soooo for this young family.....and I cannot begin to imagine what they are going through now or in the future. Soooo I ran out of bread this morning.....I wasn't fighting for my life in the hospital...I wasn't saying goodbye to my loved ones......This lady also shared with me how she had lost her daughter a while ago to cancer and how they had watched her suffer and fight for 5 years....soooo I ran out of bread this morning. Yesterday my daughter fractured her thumb and it took about 8 hours before she finally got in for xrays and got it taken care of. It was a lot of running around avoiding the hospital emergency only to end up being sent to the children's hospital in the end anyway because she had to be put to sleep. She was done and home in bed by 11:30 last night. But thank the Lord she came home....it was just a fractured thumb....and sooooo today I am thanking the Lord that I ran out of bread this morning.
