Oh my goodness, has God ever answered alot of prayers this week.
He is good, blessed be His name.
Will blog about this in more details once all the dust settles.
On a different note, my doctor did not agree with my assessment that I needed some Xanax. So after bawling in his office like a soap opera actress going for the Daytime Emmy he gave me a perscription for a wonderful new hubby. There's a great pharmacy in fantasyland that will fill it for me. Apparently all I need is wings to get me there. In the meantime, while I wait for feathers to sprout from my armpits, a couple good night's sleep is what the good doc ordered.
So, I'm in bed.
Getting ready to go to sleep.
This might be the start of a new Jane. One that doesn't blog til 2 am and goes through life sleep deprived. This Jane will make every effort to get 8 hours of sleep every night.
You heard it here first.
On a different note: wasn't ER sad tonight? My heart goes out to Abby.
And... that was the last new episode of the Office. Their writers are on strike. That'll sure free up Thursday nights for me. Maybe I'll use that time to do something worthwhile. Like do sit ups.
Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Janice brought me a plate of homemade fudge tonight. :) :) :) Sandra dropped off chocolate cupcakes and a stack of homemade cookies made with ingredients that help the chewer deal with anxiety. I believe she mentioned hemp as being one of the ingredients. I am thankful for friends. Thank you, friends.
2. I've got an inbox full of messages from strangers from all over the continent telling me they are praying with and for my family. Strangers! Heaven is gonna be a wild party, I just know it. Thank you friends-whom-I-haven't-met-yet ... let me know how I can pray for you too. Know that your prayers have made a humungus difference. God hears. And answers.
3. Jim is staying with dad and mom tonight. Surrey Hospital is sending out TWO aids to help mom (with issues she'd rather I don't get into on the internet) in the morning. Then Laurie (aka God's Angel of Nursing) will be there from 10 - 2, where she will, in addition to caring for my mom and dad with gentleness, authority and compassion, she will interview 2 women who might job share the afternoon shift SEVEN days a week. (The homecare agency I hired is disappointing. On SO many levels... don't even get me started.) Max and Drew are at their dad's and he'll get them to school.
I am "off duty" for 14 hours. No mom duties. No caregiving duties.
You have no idea how thankful I am. No idea.
No, really, THANK YOU.
