Some days

Hi everyone, sorry about the delay in posting something. I have been back in action and classes are going ok. Lots to read but that is part of the program.

I wish I could say I was doing better today. Matthew had surgery on Friday and has been recovering at home in a lot of pain. He just called me this afternoon to tell me that Princess Lucy needed surgery (she had a nail get torn out and they had to knock her out to fix it) and now he and the one of the dogs are recovering. I am feeling extremely guilty that I am not there to help out with what is going on. I know that God has called me to be at seminary but that does not make things like this any easier. I keep telling myself, if I was home I could be fixing this and taking care of Matthew and Lucy.

But there is a lesson here, the lesson is that there are many people who are caring for us to go through this process. We have such wonderful friends who live downstairs from us that have been taking wonderful care of Matthew and now Lucy and I am eternally thankful for the love and support that they have given.

I also realize that this is a community that is in this journey with us no just Matthew and I. We have had support through Matthews surgery and recovery and we will continue.

With all that said it does not make things any easier for me. It is something I have to pray with and deal with but sometimes it just seems to hit me harder than others.

I thank you for your prayers, love and support.
