My sister-in-law, the one being treated for breast cancer FOR THE SECOND TIME recommended I remove my gel nails. Now most of you know I'm not really foo-foo and that I didn't want to begin getting "my nails done", but I did - at the request of my precious husband. He makes such few requests, how could I deny him?
Anyway, I went to get them taken off and I cried. I couldn't believe I was crying over gel nails! But I was and, as Shakespeare said, "To thine own self be true." So I am. I cried.....
realizing I could lose so much more than fancy fingernails.
Realizing and wondering what else I may lose.
Realizing that I'm blessed to have so many loving people surrounding me.
Realizing that God is still good.
Afterwards my daughter, grandbabies and I spent time together. As I cried with her ( yes, it was a crying day), she said, "Ok, I was saving this, but you need it now." Look what she made for me! This is called a Mondo Bag. She and I took the class at our local Bernina quilt shop. With everything going on, I asked her to finish it for me and wala! She did! Isn't it beautiful?! And that's not all....
Well, as the kids napped, I ran to Jo Ann's
What, then, shall we say in response to these things?
