Hello There

Um, so hi, how are you? It's been a bit since I've been around and, well, there just isn't anything I can do about it. I thought I should give you all a bit of an update since some pretty important things are happening.

First of all, our anniversary was fantastic. We had a beautiful dinner and a surprise visit to Arrington Vineyard, we walked in the rain and just enjoyed being together. Travis bought a ring for me that I really, really, really wanted. It's not a super-expensive ring but it's pretty and it has a story, like most meaningful things do. I'll have to share that and pictures later. Because I'm in Birmingham, using my Mom's computer and I'm not going to upload pictures here.

My Dad had knee surgery Monday and while the surgery went fine and his therapy was going really well, he's had some issues today. He hasn't been feeling well and we thought that it was because of the medicine he's on but apparently they cut his therapy short today because of some chest pain. They've done some tests and they don't know yet if his heart issue is because of his surgery or if it's an underlying heart problem. My Mom is there tonight and Travis and Amanda will be coming here in the morning. I really need him for emotional support and to help with the girls. The hospital isn't exactly a great place for them to hang out. So I can leave them at Mom's with Travis while I go do whatever my parent's need for me to do.

So, I'm looking forward to not being drama-Button-girl soon. Trav has been hard at work in our room and I want to show you guys some pictures of that soon. The work had to be cut short because he's coming here now but I'll just say that for the first time in 3 years we have a bedroom door that opens and closes properly. I'm happy about that and I'm also very happy about the weather. I love autumn and I can hardly wait to make some autumn goodies. Mmmm.

Praying for your dad, and whole family! I can't wait to hear more about your anniversary and the ring! Happy FALL!

From a girl-without-a-bedroom-door, congratulations on that. I'm going on 6 years without one. I'm a little jealous :)
We're praying for your dad, too, and for an end to the drama. Just a little peace and deep, abiding joy would be nice, huh?

Christy, I thought of you when I wrote about the door. I can't imagine 6 years without one. Of course, when I saw you didn't have one I tried to think of some way for you to put one in.

Thankfully, I have a lot of peace to go with the "what-in-the-world-is-going-on" thoughts I have too. I'd really like to go hiking :)

I'm so glad you guys enjoyed your anniversary and I would love to hear more about the ring and definitely want to see pictures of the bedroom.

Praying for all of you guys, that God would continue to prove Himself in all that threatens to drown out the truth.

You are dearly loved.
