My Life

I found out this weekend that I had strep throat, a sinus infection and bronchitis bordering on pneumonia. With much prayer and antibiotics I am on the road to recovery.

We had a wonderful visit with Angela this past weekend and even though I wasn't up to snuff, we enjoyed her time here immensely. It was fun watching Angela and Lance exchange birthday gifts. I had asked Lance what he wanted to get his sister and told me flowers, which was so thoughtful but I explained that she wouldn't be able to take these home on the plane. He then suggested getting her chocolates and again I hated to burst his bubble, but told him that she doesn't eat chocolate at all. I think he began to grasp for straws because his next suggestion was to buy her a steak. This made me laugh because Angela eats very little meat and never a steak. Lance and I went to Bath and Body Works where he picked out a subtle fragrant body mist. I think he did a great job, and for the record, I would have liked anyone of the items he wanted to get his sister.

Angela got Lance three books, Where the Sidewalk Ends, Six by Seuss, and Where the Wild Things Are. He made Erin, his staff person that was on duty last night, read to him from Where the Sidewalk Ends for over an hour. She told me that she remembers reading the book when she was young and thoroughly enjoyed reading it again. I am so happy she is a good sport.

Now, I never let people know who my daughter works with, I figure it is her job and she doesn't need people knowing the who's, what's, where's and why's of her business, but I am going to brag a little bit right now. Because of who she knows, we, as in Lance, Kevin and I, are getting back stage passes to a concert we are attending Sunday. Can you say YES!?!?! Lance will absolutely love meeting the band members of this well known worship band.

Once again, I want to apologize for not stopping by and visiting all my bloggy friends. Life has a way getting in the way of so many things. I am hoping that next week I will feel much better and be less busy so I can catch up with all of you. In the mean time, keep the faith!

Glad you are feeling better. Sounds like it was a good family time with Angela and Lance.

Wow! I'm impressed about the back stage passes!

Joyce said...

So glad you were able to enjoy your daughter's visit. Hope you are fully back to your healthy self soon...have a great time at the concert!

I'd say that you really needed to see the Dr.! Glad to hear everything is under control, antibiotics and mostly prayer.
I would also take any one of those gifts Lance wanted to get Angela, what sweet choices.
I'm positively confessing you'll be well in no time and waiting to hear about the fun you had at the concert!

You just take care of yourself & your precious family. Don't worry about us. Well, me, anyway.) It is so sweet to hear of Lance's gift ideas for his sister & of their time together. I STILL like to read children's books and have a hard time passing up any Dr. Seuss ones I see in thrift stores! I need to look up that Sidewalk one to read also.

I don't have to tell you to enjoy that upcoming concert. And kudos on your lovely daughter's employment. It's obvious you are proud (as well as sensitive to her privacy).

Glad your back and have some fun stuff to look forward to. It will make up for your down time. Miss you when your gone.

Brenda said...

I say, "Yes!" What fun to anticipate and attend the concert. It is a kiss on the cheek.

Poor Lance, it is hard to buy for some women! I would have liked all of his gifts. Glad that you had a happy day.

Sorry to hear you've been sick and I'm glad you're on the mend!
