I have rested a lot today. It has come easily, thankfully, but has also come with a little bit of grouchiness. I think I have just been so tense, that it is finally making its way out. My prayer is that as HE has before, that the Lord will take this. The fear, uncertaintity, pain, anxiety, all of it. I am so thankful for all God has done in my life and I do not want to ruin the next few days by letting these feelings overtake me. I am hoping that it is a combination of all the pain meds, lack of other medicines, and just the stress and that I will continue to feel better and better each day. I continue to be so blessed by my friends and parents. I had a few visitors today, who didn't mind my bobbing head ( I could hardly hold it up I was so sleepy most of the day), my parents came and were here thankfully when my toilet overflowed and their was at least 2 inches of water in 1 bathroom, 1/2 of our VERY long hall and part of the guest room-craziness. The firedepartment caroling was toinght at Landrum-so all the kids, grandkids, families, etc. came and stood in the front yard. It was so touching to get to share that bit of Christmas joy with them and to realize when we have taken the time to do that for other people, just how much it really means. It really meant the world.

I still am amazed to be home-it is the best feeling ever. We love you all!!
