Thursday is Phyllis’s Rheumatologist appointment. For awhile I thought I had over-reacted and I should cancel her appointment but in the last week or so she’s been complaining again and asking for Aleve. Yes, my daughter is 16 and still asks if she can have pain reliever. She’s old enough to make up her mind whether she needs it, I just like to know so I can mentally take note.

I will be honest, I wish there was someone to go to hold my hand. I know I can handle whatever the answer is but somehow its easier to be brave when someone is holding your hand. Whatever we have to go up against, if anything at all, we will. And by we I mean, Phyllis, me, and God. Not in that particular order. He did it once, I can't wait to see Him do it again.

Luke 8:50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, "Don't be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed."

I wrote this post earlier but I didn't post it. I had to run some errands at lunch and decided they could wait and I needed to read my bible so I stopped at a 'greasy spoon' and took a breath (see I'm learning) I was reading this today at lunch. Funny how God just "shows up" when we're seeking Him.

I'll be praying ...and you won't be alone...He is there...and we, your sisters and brothers will be there.

I'll be praying also. I can feel your heartbeat in this post. It's the way a mother's heart sounds when she is concerned about her child. I've been there too, I understand.

I will be praying on Thursday for both of you! God has everything under control...Mama's never stop fretting over their babies no matter how old they are. I am almost 57 years old and My Mama still calls me her baby...and I am!
Phyllis is blessed!
