Tom and I have been so very blessed and comforted by your prayers and encouragement. I'm truly overwhelmed and grateful to each of you for taking the time to drop a comment or email. I have felt your prayers in a way that I could not have imagined.
Our daughters swooped in on Monday and got me propped up with tea and pillows. They fixed dinner and cried with us. Our "Lagniappe" neighbor brought food as well.
Katherine drove the hour and twenty minute trip yesterday afternoon, and arrived with chocolate and hair products. She knows that a little highlighting can go a long way toward cheering the spirits. Sisters are great, aren't they?
Between my mom (who will come on Saturday), my mother in law, and ladies from church, we are being looked after and cared for. It is not easy for me to be on the receiving end of people's kindness...I hate to trouble anyone, you know. But maybe through this difficult time the Lord is showing us the flip side of compassion: how much it means when someone goes out of their way to make soup or drop an email. It's humbling and heart warming and wonderful in the midst of something awful.
I'm still waiting for the miscarriage to end and it's hard to not be anxious. I have projects that are waiting but I'm having a hard time focusing on anything creative. I'll make a couple of phone calls today to postpone what I can.
So thank you again. I've read each comment and email and cherished your kind thoughts. You've blessed me.
