I have no ideas for a title

I adore this kitchen. On a very exciting note: my mom is now on the floor.... officially out of ICU!! She still has a long road ahead of her, but this is a step in the right direction! On another exciting, scary, overwhelming note: I started orientation for grad. school on Tuesday. Maybe that's just an overwhelming note.

Waiting on the Lord

Thursday, August 13, 2009

This is my sweet mom, who I love so so much. My family is sick of hospitals. A good friend sent this to me this morning, and it was definitely what I needed in that moment:

"Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, 'The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.' The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD."

Lamentations 3:21-26

Thanks for your prayers. My mom has had a rough couple of weeks, but my hope is in Christ. Thank goodness for a solid foundation.

Prayer for my mom

Monday, August 10, 2009

I've debated even blogging about this, just because there is so many details.... I'm just going to keep it short. My mom is in the ICU because when she went in for surgery and they put the breathing tube in, she aspirated. She's still in the ICU-- I found out this morning that on top of all the other problems, she has pneumonia. Her white blood cell count is pretty high still and her oxygen levels aren't very good. Please pray for her--for a quick recovery, for great nurses, for peace for my mom. I'd appreciate it very much.

Sophisticated Bunk Beds

How cute are these bunk beds?! I think I love them so much because they are still fun and kid-friendly, but have a more sophisticated feel.
