I was so humbled by the outpouring of love and support yesterday. Not only did I get more comments in a single day than I think I have ever had on a post, but on top of that, many of you sent emails. It means a lot, and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is comforting to know that people really do care. It gives me hope for this world to see so many of you who share in someone else’s happiness.
This will be a short post, because even though I’m still smiling, I woke up yesterday morning to an intense headache. I’m sure it was from all the emotions Tuesday, even though all good, it was still an emotional day. Sometimes when I become overwhelmed by emotions, I get headaches.
It’s still a bit hard to believe, and I think I’m in a bit of shock. I’m eager to get moved, settled, and start my new job.
We all know the power of prayer, and I have a major prayer request for everybody. My 101 year old neighbor fell and broke her hip yesterday. She’s a very special woman. When I was a kid, she worked at a candy kitchen and kept divinity just for when I’d come over. She’s always been very independent and still gets out in her rose garden and sits in a little chair as she cuts the grass at the perfect height with a pair of scissors. When I told her Tuesday that I’d be moving to Vermont, she cried and it broke my heart, but she knows it’s the best thing for me. A broken hip isn’t easy for anyone but it’s especially hard on someone her age. She will have surgery today but because of her advanced age and other medical conditions the doctors cannot put her to sleep for it. Please pray for Miss E, she needs all the strength our prayers can provide.
