Girls Write Out

First off, praise God Dave's surgery went so well. WOOHOO, and hopefully, he gets to come home today.

Last year when I went to Indiana, my little straightening iron got stolen. It was expensive! Nearly $200 and tiny travel size, which helped my MS hands -- which aren't always working correctly. So having the small straightening iron was helpful.

Well, I've been relegated to curly hair since I didn't replace the expensive iron and I was telling my friend (up and coming writer Bethany Macklin) as she was on her way to Mt. Hermon Writers' Conference my tale of woe and her hubby works for a company that MAKES them. (FHI) So on Easter, she surprised me with a new little straightener and it was such an encouragement. It's been a rough year, and it's amazing how the grace of others helps us along.

I was talking to the pastor's wife on Sunday and I was telling her how much she meant to me for rescuing my son in the third grae from an abusive teacher. (She got him into her private school the next day!) She didn't even remember doing that. Isn't it funny how people can have such a huge impact on your life and it's such a small thing to them, they don't remember it? That always fascinates me. Have you seen it happen?

Yes, I've experienced that same type of kindness from you all! Showing up at the hospital, sending me gifts, sweet notes, phone calls, bringing food!

God's people are amazing!

So happy that Dave's surgery is over and it went well.
I love how God nudges people to call or do something special for us when we are down and need a little lovin'.
I too have had conversations with people who tell me I said something to them years ago that impacted their lives and changed them and I don't even remember the situation. It is a humbling reminder to watch my words, I could lead a person astray and not even know it if I say the wrong thing.
Blessings to you and your family.
