Today, on surgery day, as I thought about how mangled my brother's new face might look, I forgot to bring a field trip permission slip along with 6.00 that was due. I asked for a new one. I went home, showered, looked up gross facial reconstruction photos on the internet, stressed out, went grocery shopping and tried not to tear up in public as I went through the self check out. I was in a hurry to pick up Little Girl from pre-school and forgot to pay for a gift card... When I realized, (in the parking lot) my mistake, I looked up to the heavens and promised that I would be honest and return to pay if He would grant a miracle on the surgical table today. He must really care about that 15.00 I owed Safeway because a miracle was granted (and yes I did return and pay). I don't even care that I had to humble myself (again!) and ask for a 2nd field trip permission form in front of the one lady at pre-school who annoys me. Eric's surgery went great! So much better than we had thought. You can read about it here. He started his blog as an update for family but he is such a great writer that you might just want to scan back and start from the beginning. You will see why I am so inspired by this perfect brother of mine. Thank you to all of you who have been praying for him and his family.
