Good day and bad news. Prayers please.

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Thanks to everyone for their good wishes and for following my blog.

Today was another very good day. I didn't get out to lunch with my sis and niece and her cousin, but I did take m-i-l and dh out for lunch and some shopping. Didn't get swimming, but had some nice quiet alone time after I took dh and Buddy over to his nanny's. My sis had been running left, right and center so it was 15 to 8 before they got out here to play cards tonite. We laughed, and laughed and had a fine time. I did make some lunch, and though I planned to make nachos, discovered I didn't have cheese, so I had to fake it... We got veggie crackers with spinach dip and gingerbread cookies, and we all had our own individual flavours of tea. It is so fun having so many different varieties and having a small shelf around my countertop so I can display them all and let each person pick and choose what they want. They left and I picked up "the boys" around midnite....

The only bad thing that happened today was getting the news that my brother-in-law has just been diagnosed with a tumor on his bladder. Please pray for him. He's had some tests and is going to have surgery on July 3 already. He just turned 60, is morbidly obese and diabetic as well. They were just going to return to Doha for him to teach at the college, but guess there will be a serious change of plans. It also means that they didn't get to go for their cruise to the Bahamas and will not be coming down here for the big birthday lobster feed next week either...

Good thing he is able to have the surgery so soon!

    Your day with family sounds perfect, Lila. What a blessing.

The news about your brother in law is sad - things just seem to happen so quickly. Perhaps he'll be able to fit in the cruise and the feast when he's recovered from the surgery. God is able.

    What a lovely day you had!

I am sorry about your brother-in-law, but God willing, they found it early, can do surgery soon, and he'll be ready to feast on lobster (maybe hold the butter) before long.
