It is late on Sunday night and I wanted to post a few things.... first of all... some actual cards... woo hoo! These are my first cards using one of Dawn's sets. I am ashamed to say that I bought this set not too long after it's release and I just recently played with it. I think that is a sure sign that I have too many stamps! :)
Second.... I got to meet a very dear blog friend, Janelle, and her husband, Ken, tonight for dinner.
Ken emailed me a while ago to let me know that they would be passing through the area and thought it would be a great surprise for Janelle if me and my family could meet them for breakfast on Monday morning. Well... long story short... we didn't follow through with the surprise because they actually got into town earlier than expected so we went ahead and met for dinner tonight.
We had a great time spending an hour or so just talking to Janelle and Ken (while we stuffed our faces of course)! I LOVE Janelle and am so glad to have finally been able to hug her neck! :) I was equally as thrilled to meet her wonderful husband, Ken!
Here is a pic of me and Janelle and another pic of all of us together!
Definitely a good day today! :)
Third thing.... Thank you again for all of the prayers for my latest drama! I am doing good... really sore but no 'real' pain since Friday night so that is great. Just waiting to hear some sort of news tomorrow.
I feel kind of silly talking about all of my recent health issues on my blog. I am sure a lot of you are tired of hearing it... I know I am tired of talking about it! :) I started to not post about what is going on with me now but let me tell you why I did... I believe in the power of prayer! Simple as that! As embarrassing as the drama may be and at the risk of being coined a 'drama queen'... I believe in the power of prayer! If I don't tell you... you won't know to pray or what to pray for!
Again... I was hesitant to post about it and then I was like ... Kelley... you are doing exactly what you think others shouldn't do... keep things to themselves and not ask for prayer. So... I decided to post about it (hesitantly) and you know what happened... my mood/outlook was different in about an hour after I posted it on my blog! Now... it has gone back and forth over the last few days (my mood/outlook) but there is definitely a difference when others are praying for you. I know that I am never alone. God is always with me! However... when I don't share things and ask for prayer... that is the only way that I know how to describe how I feel... alone! I feel empty and scared and just a darkness. When I share my troubles and I know others are going to God in prayer on my behalf... I don't feel that way! I may still have ups and downs of being scared, etc... but I no longer feel alone!
Anyway... that is probably a lot of rambling that doesn't make sense. After all... it is after midnight now! :) It makes sense to me!
Thank you again for the prayers and support! I can never thank you enough!
Peace and Love!
