I had a few minutes this morning, so I wanted to post something that touched my heart. Cody, Clay, and I were sitting at the dinner table last night (Chance was in Oklahoma for business and Carson was at a 4-H judging contest). Cody was worrying about Clay's surgery on Monday & was also wondering if he could just miss a few days of school to sit with us at the hospital. I reassured him and told him that there was no need to worry about tomorrow until tomorrow comes. I then said, "And this could be the day that the Lord returns." Then Clay said "Oh, I hope this is the day because then I will have a new body." The things that children say touches the depths of our souls.
We will get Carson & Cody to school Monday morning and then head to Dallas. We are to be at Children's Hospital by 11:00am. Clay will have his pre-op and then head to the O.R. at approximately 12:30pm. We are not sure how long the surgery will take, but he will stay in the hospital overnight. My twin sister has been really sick; so, my mom is in Nebraska helping them with our nieces. My mom has been away from home so much this year-thanks, Dad, for holding down the fort while she has been away. The boys will be staying with some friends here in town. We are grateful that we have many wonderful friends willing to help with Carson & Cody. Thank you so much! We are very thankful for all the help and encouragement near and far.
