But in the midst of it all I was able to see small answers
My car broke down but I was able to get it fixed right away so I didn't have to postpone my trip to the cities to see Mike on my day off. It was spendy but I was blessed enough to be able to write a check to cover it.
It even got fixed on a time line that let my husband drop me off to pick it up and make it to work at the hospital for the evening shift.
Mike did well with the intitial surgery and didn't have to have a colostomy (yeah!)
And for a family that struggles to keep connected sometimes we (my Dad and siblings) were all rallying and supporting Mike and connecting with each other.
And then when I had a moment and looked for distraction I went to my computer and read Ro's muse of the day that talked about how life gives us both sadness and joys - she wrote "If we never felt sad, we wouldn't appreciate being happy. If we never had disappointment we wouldn't be grateful for successes. If we were never sick, we wouldn't feel the wonder of strength"
And then I thought about what a gift it is to digi scrap because it helps me concretely count my blessings and to have this supportive community.
So thanks - you are all a blessing!

He knows EXACTLY how you feel and what is going on. He will be your comfort and support. Just lean on Him and TRUST Him.
We don't understand why these things happen, but there is a time and purpose for ALL things.
We love you and will continue to pray.
