Yesterday, God wanted me to learn a lesson-- and when I tried to ignore him-- he just kept giving me more of the lesson. 
ya ~Gotta love the persistence of the Father?  The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.  Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.  We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised.

I went to visit my surgeon -- the one who fixed my foot-- I was expecting to tell him that I did not want a second surgery. But instead, I had to wait, and wait-- then when he did come to see me-- he really didn't talk about the surgery. He asked for xrays of my foot and said, "I want to see you again in a month!" I then waited and waited -- finally the nurse came in and ordered the xrays--. I was allowed to go get the xrays and then make my new appointment. Finally, I left the building-- the original appointment was for 10:45, when I looked at the clock in my car it was 12:10.

Hopefully, I was patient -- hopefully I won't have to learn this lesson again too soon.
Of course, by just writing those words, I should be prepared --huh?
 Let me get my knee pads and get some prayers going!

So, on another topic-- Shane went overboard last night and ate a ton of carrots-- this morning his bathroom expirence was ... shall we say colored orange?   -- Cue the morning conversation about how much is ENOUGH toliet paper-- and yes your butt is clean and dry here... look in the mirror! ("But, Mom ~the inside doesn't feel clean"--   I said "Shane it's the inside-- don't worry about it-- you are fine.")
