friday letters

Dear Me,
Please make a note to always keep evaporated milk and chocolate chips on hand.  Always.  Spur of the moment hot fudge is sometimes necessary.  Maybe next time you should make dinner first, but don't worry, I understand...

Dear Laura,
I have loved your texts this week!  And the way you added three "o"s to the "so" before excited.  I am trying hard to not to constantly bug you with my "voice" but I want to hear it all... or read it all.  And yesterday?  When you said you were going with friends?  My heart did a happy dance right there in the doctor's office!

Dear Doctor,
Sorry that I almost laughed when you asked me about steroids.  It is just that yes I have had more than my fair share of experience with them... the shot and the pills.  But I am willing to take them for the next six days.  Beyond that?  I hope not!  {and Suz, beware... you better keep your food far across the table today... because I'm already starving}

Dear Eric,
Well, we did it.  We brought our first off to college.  What a step.  Thank you, for reading my face and knowing that the first apartment just wouldn't do... and thank you, for fixing it.  I am so thankful for you... the laughter we create and the ordinary moments that turn extraordinary when we are us.  It won't be long now, before we are making this journey again... but I couldn't dream of making it with anyone but you...

Dear God,
Thank you for the blessings of the week and the weekend.  You carried us through... and are creating opportunities for our girl that will keep her in the palm of your hand.  Today I ask for extra care of some some very beautiful ladies... rest and a handful of spoons for my weary friend, comfort and assurance for a mama in the waiting room and as she enters the recovery room.  Also, can you find a way to knit a family back together?  Their loss was monumental, and the year has been long.  But maybe with time and the summer breeze, there will be a way...

These letters are always fun to read. Texts from your girl who is doing well (didn't we know this?)and having fun is a great way to spend those days after moving her out. It makes my heart happy. We're leaving here in just a little while. Thank you for your prayers, sweet friend. I feel them. Hugs.

So, you had a hot fudge emergency??? So funny.
And steroids? Again? Oh my...what are we going to do with you?
So nice that Laura is having a great first week, can't wait to hear all about it!!!!

Yay steroids. I've been on them now since November. 5 mg of Prednisone every day. I just started weaning myself off it today (per doc's orders)-- 1 pill one day, 1/2 pill the next, for a month (he said). I might make it more like three weeks if I can get away with it. I gained 10 pounds in the first two months. :P I've taken it all back off again but it's SO hard!

Random prednisone ramble. Just the thing for a Friday afternoon, don'tcha think?
