More appointments...

Well, the morning started off early with my pre-opt. appointment for my knee surgery. I was nervous and I had to keep telling myself... that I am just getting information and not going to have anything happen to me today. I came home and got to spend the day with Angie and Jenny and so that was fun, yet tiring. I will be glad when my knees don't hurt so much and I will be able to spend the days playing with the girls without being worn out.

So the appointment today was just to let me know exactly what Wednesday's surgery is going to be and what I need to expect. It doesn't sound like it is going to be too tough of a surgery, so I am grateful. Of course I would love to have my body stop needing surgeries each year but ...such is life!

I have to admit that I am so blessed to have so many friends and family that love and support me that I really can't complain. I have had so many loved ones call me this past week and tell me that they will keep me in there prayers and how can I say thanks enough for that, especially when they have to pray for me so often?  :)

So tonight someone sent me this sweet poem about sisters and even though I didn't have any sisters as I was growing up... I certainly have A LOT OF THEM now, and for that I am very grateful. Thanks to all of you for your friendship. Good night!

'Sisters' are there, no matter how much time and how
many miles are between you.

A girl friend is never farther away than needing her can reach.

When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you
have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life
will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on,
praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on
your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the
valley's end.

Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk
beside you...Or come in and carry you out.

Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters,
daughters-in-law, Mothers,
Grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended
family, all bless our life!

The world wouldn't be the same without women, and
neither would I. When we began this adventure called
womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or
sorrows that lay ahead. Nor did we know how much  we would need each other.
