rollercoasters

well, not the good kind. last week was one of the hardest i've had in my life. not QUITE as bad as finding out randy had cancer, but it was no cake walk either. my last blog set the scene for Monday. then Tuesday came along. (it was actually a GREAT day) then Wednesday happened, and that carried into Thursday or what i like to call breakdown day. I am thankful to have the women in my life that i have to surround me and hold me up when i'm rock bottom. it helped me to get through Friday, then we got to enjoy some fun things over the weekend.

i was going to somewhat try to list the things that made me want to chew nails last week, but after thinking about it, nothing's that serious to even mention. it all worked out like it always does, and now i look back and shake my head wondering what all the tears were even about. i guess that's how life is. i know i've grown tremendously this week. growing hurts. but now i'm stronger, i have more endurance, character, hope.... this sounds so familiar. oh yeah. my favorite verse. Romans 5 3-5. at the end of all of the drama, hurt, frustration, exhaustion and pain i start this next week with my head held high, my heart fortified in Christ and money in my pocket for the first time in years. :) working hard pays off. have a great week.

That is my favorite verse, too.

Thank you for encouraging ME today by your words.

I've found an airplane trip is a better description of a life filled with medical strife. We are trying to get somewhere and sometimes it's smooth sailing and we can even zone out to a movie forgetting we are on the journey, but other times the turbulence is so great the seat belt sign is brightly flashing b/c of the storm just outside our window. My plane keeps growing as people choose to fly with us through the storm and to our unknown destination, and I'm so grateful it does. I'm totally on YOUR plane and praying for you, Randy and the kids as often as I can. We love you!

Haven't looked at any blogs for a long time. I'm praying that Randy is doing well and that your new work continues to bring in the needed income. Have you tried the new sushi/tepanyaki restaurant in Redding? I hear the tepanyaki is lots of fun and great food! Let me know on your blog if you try it.
