Ten Things I Discovered Today

One- Friends will be encouraging when you really need them to be.

Two- Encouragement can come in many different ways. Today friends gave me physical hugs, blog, text, and phone hugs, prayers through text, in person and on their own personal time. Love pouring from all directions.

Three- My brother does not know how to fill out paperwork at the doctor's office. His wife must normally do it. ( I went with him to meet with a surgeon today)

Four- Some receptionists at some doctor's offices are RUDE and slow. But some NURSES are awesome!

Five- Didn't discover this today but I was reminded that O'Charley's has the best Grilled Chicken Salad on earth mainly because it is loaded with candied pecans and strawberries.

Six- When doctor's communicate effectively it helps eliminate some of the worry and stress before a surgery.

Seven- I found a new water at Publix called sparkling Ice. I'm in love with water now. It's carbonated and comes in a variety of flavors. I'm drinking grapefruit right now!

Eight- Very pointed high heel shoes make my calves look slimmer and shapely ( in my own mind) but are so uncomfortable after wearing them a few hours.

Nine- I want to mother my brother when he has a major problem arise. Since mom is not here I guess I'm trying to do what she would have done.

Ten- Putting Freon in a car when the air hasn't been working for several weeks is an awesome thing.

Blogger's note: for those of you who don't know my brother has not been well and needs your prayers. He will have surgery Monday. A biopsy will be done and we are believing for a benign tumor. God is great and we are trusting Him in all things.

It's a great exercise to create a list like that! I enjoyed looking around your blog - I hope all went well for your brother.

I've been slowly catching up, Julie, and was unaware of your brother's illness. My prayers are with your family. So glad he has a sister like you!
