The Fourth

What were you doing two years ago?
One of the reasons I keep a blog is to remind me of the time I spent raising two Little Roaches.  The mistakes I made, their friendships, their lives and mine all wrapped up in one.  Most of you that have read this blog know two years ago, God changed my life forever.  It has been a long recovery full of setbacks and accomplishments both large and small.  Over the past few months I knew the ankle was different.  I just knew with my Internet MD licence that I was experiencing arthritis.  I went in Monday and much to my surprise my Google search lied to me.  I am scheduled for drum roll please....surgery number 4 next week.  It appears I have some loose screws and my husband has been vindicated.  They will once again remove the hardware the resides in my bones and sew up a scar that has to be opened up again.  I am so thankful it is not arthritis and thankful this is something completely fixable.  I would love nothing more than for this to be the end of this ankle story but I don't get to decide those things.  I can't see the whole picture. I can't see past me.  So I am just thankful.  I was asking a friend at the ballpark last night what is the saying with the "fourth?"  You know, "third time is the charm."  She just looked at me and said, "Awe, nothing goes with the fourth time."  So here's to nothing. 
Please continue to pray for my friends on the right side of this blog.

Oh, sweet friend... prayers for you. Prayers, prayers, prayers. There's a lyric to a song I have fallen in love with here lately that says something to the effect of I don't understand Your ways, but if you showed me, the pain would be the same. So basically, I guess I am saying that even if He revealed the end of road for you, the pain, frustration, anger, and every other emotion wouldn't be any different right now. So just keep your faith in the mean time. I know you trust in Him. Don't let the crap of this life swallow you up. Love you! And I think this is officially the longest comment ever.
