Here I thought January and February would go by slow this year. Boy was I wrong.
Unfortunately, our evening didn't go like we thought it would. Nana ended up tripping and falling in the cafeteria area. She was taken to the hospital and we found out that she broke her wrist. After seeing an orthopedic doctor this last Monday we then found out that not only was her wrist broken....it was actually crushed. She will be having surgery tomorrow to add a plate and screws to her wrist. It is not what Nana needed at this time. It has broken my heart to see her once again going through so much pain. We are praying for her surgery to go smoothly and for recovering to be quick and with less pain than she is dealing with now. And God willing we pray that her wrist will be as good as new someday soon.
We have a lot going on....as always....but we sure are enjoying life and spending lots of time together. It won't be long before we go from a family of 4 to a family of 5 and I'm looking forward to the entire journey. Lord knows my heart is full. Life may not always be perfect and maybe it has a few unexpected turns, but God didn't say this life would be easy. He did, however, say that He would never leave us and I know for a fact he has kept that promise. As we face the trial of mom's surgery and the joy of an upcoming birth of a child....we can rest assured that we will have God with us through it all. And I must say....I would much rather have a life of trials and ups and downs with God by my side than a life that is a bed of roses and not have God with me. "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
