If any of you have visited jumpinginpuddles today JIP's blog you know that she is safe. I did get an email early this morning saying that she had arrived in a safe location. That was a huge relief because last night it was tough going. I didn't change the prayer request because JIP is still going to have a tough time until she can get this move of hers completed. So please continue to pray for her and her kids in this time of transition.
With all of the stuff going on with jumpinginpuddles, you might think she'd have her hands full. But she still found the time to send me a birthday card this evening. I was very touched she took time to think of me.
Obviously, since I have severed all connections to my birth family, birthdays can be odd to say the least. My husband works weird hours and was gone for my birthday today. We will put off celebrating until another day.
My youngest child, Lindsay, surprised me by getting me a Breyer horse of the Proud Arabian Mare model that she then had custom painted like my first horse, Scandalous. Lindsay is my child who had brain cancer. From that she has brain damage that keeps her home with us. The fact that this gift took a lot of special planning and thought makes it all the more special to me.
