It's a good day to pray

Care to join me?

We're taking our youngest daughter, Princess D (for Delayna) in to the hospital at 8 a.m. in the morning. Her official surgery time is at 9:30. She was pretty restless this evening. She is not a big fan of going under anesthesia. That part bothers her the most. So I did what any good Mom would do, and I kept her mind off things by encouraging her to do the dishes. hehehe! She's a good sport. I admire her spunk, her quick wit, her incurable case of the giggles and her willingness to SAY when she's nervous or afraid or that her stomach is getting wound up in knots.

The best thing about this girl? She is a believer.

When I remind her that God has this under control, she visibly calms down. When people come to her bedside at the hospital, as they have all the other 7 times she's been there, she KNOWS, she senses, that she will be ok. She thrives in knowing that people are thinking about her and praying over her. She believes.

As many of you enjoy your Thankful Thursdays, I will enjoy mine. I'll be right by the little girl that never ceases to make the doctors laugh and constantly amuses us with her silly comments and funny faces.

Love ya baby girl - and thanks for being my most faithful blog reader!!

It's a joy and privilege to pray for Princess D (and for her Momma & Dad). May the surgery be a complete success and may her recovery be smooth and free of any complication.

Love & heartfelt prayers,
