The other side...

All is well in the life of Moe. Her procedure went really well this morning and she is happily sleeping in her crib as I type. Thank you all so much for your prayers and your calls. It means more than you will ever know.

On a side note, I thought I would share a wee bit of humor with you. Last night we decided to go out to dinner so that Mom didn't have to cook. Well the girls and I met other guy at the restaurant and before other guy could get there the server asked us what we would like to drink. Well, my beautiful, sassy little Curly sat up straight and in her prettiest big girl voice said, "I'd like a glass of diarrhea!" Yep! You read that correctly...diarrhea! Well, my hands went over my mouth and I tried to compose myself. The server was so sweet because she looked at me and replied, "Was that a Dr. Pepper?"

I am happy to report that the restaurant did not serve diarrhea but Curly settled for a Sprite instead. I guess even at 3 1/2, one must still be careful of what one asks for!

Peace Out!

Well tomorrow is finally the day. Moe will have tubes put in her ears at approxiamately 7:30am CST. I know that this is a "routine" procedure but nothing is routine when it comes to your own child. I must admit that I am scared. I don't like the idea of my precious child being put to sleep even for a brief moment. Please be in prayer for our family. Pray that I will be able to trust God completely tomorrow with a "child-like" faith. Once again, I am posting lyrics to a song that has touched my heart in a way that is unexplainable. It has helped me through some dark moments with Moe.

Small Enough by Nicole Nordeman:
There were times when I was crying from the dark of Daniel's den;
And I have asked you once or twice if You would part the sea again.
But tonight I do not need a fiery pillar in the sky.
Just want to know you're gonna hold me if I start to cry.
Oh great God, be small enough to hear me now.
Oh great God, be close enough to feel You now.
There have been moments when I could not face Goliath on my own.
And how could I forget we've march around our share of Jerichos.
But I will not be setting out a fleece for You tonight.
Just want to know that everything will be alright.
Oh, great God, be close enough to feel You now.
All praise and all the honor be;
To the God of ancient mysteries.
Whose every sign and wonder turn the pages of our history.
But tonight my heart is heavy,
And I cannot keep from whispering this prayer.
Are You there?
And I know You could leave writing on the wall that's just for me.
Or send wisdom while I'm sleeping, like in Solomon's sweet dreams.
But I don't need the strength of Samson or a chariot in the end...
Just Want to know that You still know how many hairs are on my head.
Oh, great God, be small enough to hear me now

Peace Out!
