Okay, now I'm convinced that I need to start a prayer blog...in all my spare time, that's what I'll do!
All you prayer warriors out there must have prayed up a storm because I just got an update on the Kansas lady and apparently she's had a 100% turn around. This morning she is back to her old self, demanding as ever and she doesn't even remember yesterday. So thanks to your prayers, God's grace and modern medicine....this 90 something wonder woman is doing splendidly!
Keep praying for the other lady with back trouble. She will see a doctor today to see what the next step is.
In the mean time, I've been out with the kids working with the show string, I'm a complete mess and ready for a nap. We were up late last night going to a football game and then out for ice cream with some friends. WE have no business gallivanting around like until 11 pm!
The real excitement began when we got home and Jake came running downstairs screaming about the bat flying around in his bedroom! I crept upstairs, shut their bedroom door and had everybody camp out downstairs. Except JW, he was asleep during the excitement.
The funny part was when I woke up to make the coffee and Jake was laying on the floor beside my bed and when I stepped over him to open the door he jerked up and said, "Where are you going?" Feeling like I was in a western with a gun held to my back, I said, "I'm just going to make the coffee." He handed me the Lacrosse racquet that he'd been sleeping with and said, "Here, take this, you might need it and don't forget to shut the door behind you!"
When I came back he asked, from underneath his covers, if I had seen the bat and I confessed that I hadn't seen a thing. He promptly shut the door behind me and fell back asleep. After the coffee and a little news, we went to the barn and left Jake and his Lacrosse racquet in charge.
As of this minute the bat is still in the bedroom.....I'm going to send JW up to get it, he has the best track record of killing bats. The other night I was awakened from a deep sleep to hear cheers....he had just killed the first bat that came to bother us in the middle of the night. Yes, as you might have guessed, we affectionately refer to JW as batman!
