In Which I Find Out if My Mother Reads My Blog

"Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand."
Proverbs 19:21

Yeah, it was a good night.

I was really humming along, the quilt was getting So. Close. to done. Girls happy, pancakes cooking for dinner, a night of quilting, full of promise, stretching gloriously before me.

And then.

A glass.  A sink.

A cut pinky finger.

I'm ok, really.  Just sitting here, all taped together, hunting & pecking on my laptop.  Watching "Tangled" with the girlie girls.  Looks like the Lord has an interesting way of getting my attention and forcing a little rest this weekend.  And you know something else?  Just for the record, I always cry at the end of Tangled.  The longing of Rapunzel for her parents, the hope, the reunion. . . . . it just gets me.  There's a spiritual lesson in there, but my hand hurts too much to think deep spiritual thoughts right now. 

At least I don't have any gigs scheduled!  Maybe tomorrow I'll feel like quilting again. . . .

Lord willing.  

And, Mom- if you're reading this, I'm really fine :)  Do. Not. Panic.  That part about my hand hurting was poetic license to make a point.  Really.

Glad you're okay!

We just watched Tangled for the first time this weekend. We enjoyed it, and so did Lucas! :)

Fun. Fun. At least your cut did not involve 6 hours in the ER like ours. And I cried during Tangled the other day at the last parts. Is this what the next 20 years is going to be? Tears for all the changes we are going to have to face.

Praying for you as you face a big change tomorrow.

Well, at lest neither of you is my mother!!! It still hurts - a lot - it was actually pretty bad but didn't expose either muscle or tendon. I'm hoping that I don't have to go get it stitched - getting a dr. friend to look at it later today, I hope! Thanks to you both. . . .
