I thoroughly enjoyed the parenting seminar yesterday afternoon with Denise. I thought it was a too short of a day and I would have liked to have been able to ask questions but time didn’t allow for that (others did get a chance though, I see her more often than most people do, I’ll ask her questions then). I did buy her book ~ actually… I bought 15 of them!!
I love Denise. She is a wonderful friend and minister of the gospel. She has a unique way of looking at things through Kingdom glasses and she’s a bulldog! Cross her or her children and she’ll fight you to the death… we’ll — not quite but if you knew her or met her — you’d get my drift. I wish I had that same vigor but she’s been at this much longer than I so I’m sure one day… it will be present in my life too.
My notes are still in the van otherwise I’d share them with you. I think I’ll spend some quiet time this afternoon while the kids are taking a Sunday afternoon nap to start reading her book. I should be napping too. I slept funny last night, with Jake on my chest most of the night, and this morning I woke up and could barely move. My upper body is so stiff and sore…. it made it very hard to maneuver while getting ready for church – during church and after church at the baby shower. It’s been a long day already and it’s not even 3pm!
On a side note: Please continue to support Chris with your prayers. He’s not out of the woods yet. He still has a fever and is still unconscious and his heart rate is still more than double what it is supposed to be. He will have many surgeries in the near future. But the CAT Scan shows the bleeding in his brain has stopped and he’s twitching when the nurse prods him which are all wonderful and great signs of a marvelous miracle. Thanks everyone for remembering him in your prayers.
