I have had a really good day. The kids have played well and I have been extra productive. When things go this well, especially when Big Daddy's away, I always feel like I'm in for a little bit of bad. I'm not superstitious, but I just feel like something not so good is bound to happen. I just usually expect one of the kids to do something crazy or to make a big mess.
I managed to cook dinner, feed the kids and clean the kitchen when the phone rang. It was my very special mommy-friend A. After having surgery to remove skin cancer from her lip at the end of January, she called to tell me that it seems to have returned. We were only able to talk for a couple of minutes, so I only have limited details. Her doctor thinks that this is a very aggressive form of cancer. She had to have several rushed biopsies today and also had to get six stitches.
I called our other mommy-friend to tell her the news and neither of us could help but cry over the phone. As I've said before, A has kids nearly the exact same age as Maggie and Ellie and she is a great woman of faith. Please join me in praying for her.
