Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Surgery Time

They are getting ready to take Erika to surgery. She is talking to daddy right now. I love technology. :)  She woke this a.m. and said, "I'm so glad I don't live in the big city. There is too much noise!"  We did hear planes, trains and automobiles all night. :

This a.m. we called home and I was able to wake Anna by phone. We have this wonderful routine you see. At 7:30 every a.m., I sweet talk her awake. :)  I also woke Alli, and she was able to talk to Erika. Erika is talking to Anna right now, giving permission for her to use the guitar. :)

I talked to Sarah too, who already made the morning coffee, and daddy who is doing a great job managing all the little ladies. :) 
Love you all!  Don't forget to fold the laundry! :)
Love Mom

The anestheseologist asked how Erika got away with not having an IV put in before surgery....:) Mama. Arthrogryposis and needles don't mix.
So mama said, no IV's till after she's asleep. It has always been that way, no reason to change it, just because she is 13.
