Angels are among us!

Today I got up feeling about the same as always, not much energy but I did sleep well and for that I am grateful. Around 11:00 this morning 2 friends came over and said "we are so sorry to hear about your cancer and your surgery, we have been out of town and had no idea. So we are here to help you in any way for the wedding!" They were incredible, they had everything on paper from ideas to layouts for the Kirkland Women's Club building to stores and prices of everything. Now I don't know exactly what all wedding planners do but I am sure that they could have gotten jobs doing that.  I am so A.D.D that it is shocking for me to see how people can be that organized. I know that I have a problem on organizing things but no one in my family will do an INTERVENTION for me, I have even asked for one! :)

So in just a couple of hours these angels flew in and we decided almost everything we needed for the reception and they are going to take care of all of it, I just need to get some bodies there to help out the day of the reception. What a relief and blessing that was!

I rested some and then picked up the kids, that is the first time I have driven in weeks, I almost knocked over my trash can because I still can't use my left arm really well. I drove mostly with my right arm. As soon as I got home, I ate a bite and then rested some and once again someone knocked at my door and there was another one of my dear friends (another angel ) who had come to help me figure out the table decorations, she is an amazing decorator and has such a classy taste, I think Brad and Krystal will be so excited about how nice this reception is going to look and not because of me, but because of all the angels that have been helping me along the way. I wrote down what I needed to remember and what phone calls and loose ends that I needed to do tomorrow, but that isn't much at all. Now I realize that some times there are things that I have done for Others and they were blown away by what I had done and yet to me it was nothing and that is exactly  how these ladies acted when I tried to tell them how blown away I was for their generosity, kindness and for sharing their talents with me, I actually am excited now about the wedding reception, that is much better than being worried!

As for my energy well...I am still dragging at least about the same as I was. I haven't noticed any real difference from the vitamin infusion I had yesterday. My doctor called and said if I didn't feel any difference by tonight that it might not have made a difference and maybe I just need a few more to build it up in my system. Well, at $100.00 a pop, I don't think I can just hope that it is going to work, I am suppose to call her tomorrow and see how I feel then. Man, I was really hoping and believing that it was going to be just the thing I needed. I will just keep plugging along.

Tomorrow if we aren't snowed in I get to go to Nordstrom and get fitted for my new body part! I am trying to keep this blog G rated. I am excited because I really feel that this camisole that  I wear with the parts already in it, is uncomfortable and not convenient at all. I am not sure if you have seen the movie MRS DOUBTFIRE ( and I am definitely not trying to promote it because it had many parts that I didn't agree with)  but the outfit that I put on every day, looks a lot like the body suit that Robin Williams puts on to become Mrs. Doubtfire. So I do believe any thing will feel better and if that does feel better tomorrow then maybe I will feel more like trying on clothes for the wedding so that I have something to wear. My arm is still pretty sore but my range of motion is better so I am sure that I will be fine.

So good night and remember to be grateful for all the ANGELS that are around us every day!

Here's are my quotes for the day...

Angels can fly directly into the heart of the matter.  ~Author Unknown

The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.  ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

Lynn, is your blog protected somehow? I don't even remember who recommended it for reading but when I open it up I get a page full of deleted pictures. I can read enough between the pages that I want to continue to share your journey but find its really hard to read sometimes due to this "situation". Do I need to be allowed to read it? Can you help me?
