Carried by Prayer

We are very thankful to have had a wonderful day. Circumstances don’t control whether we have had a good day! We’re growing up! It feels so good to say that.

Katy has been getting up and around and we even did a little shopping together this evening. I drove across town to buy her a donut. Yes, can you believe she woke up craving a donut? She has had two Boston Cream donuts from Dunkin’ Donut. I have read this before about patients that have Crohn’s flare-ups. They crave bulky, fattening, foods. I am a health nut and it went against everything I believe about eating right but both donuts settled nicely and she was one happy girl about that. I figured that was about 500 calories, so I was happy too. I wrote her doctor an email today to let him know about the donut and said, “It gives new meaning to Oh taste and see that the Lord is good!” Katy’s pain medication is working fairly well, and her hives are being managed better by Benadryl. So I pray that we will have a better sleep tonight. But if we don’t we can always keep praying for the needs of others. We are going to watch another movie in a little while, then turn in early.

Paul will be home in the middle of the night from a business trip to Springfield, MO. We have missed him so much and look forward to greeting him at 3:00 am. Katy saved him a donut.

    A donut is a wonderful cure for any problem, I say! ;) It’s such a blessing to hear that you can feel the Lord with you, comforting you and bringing you peace through the pain. Praise Him that your pain medication is helpful and that your hives are manageable. I’ll pray for sweet sleep for you tonight! Well, except for that midnight snack time with Paul :D See you soon, Aleah

    When I was little, our family would play games together and we would often become quite silly and punchy! Sometimes in the midst of giggling and laughter someone would shout, “Cream Puff Attack!” At that cry, everyone would immediately grab shoes and dash to the car and we’d be off to the Krispy Kreme on Melrose for donuts! It is one of my fondest memories of my childhood — that spontaneous burst of fun and silliness that forged strong family bonds of love. Last week I happened to be over on Melrose to pick up a part to our stove. I saw the Krispy Kreme across the street and couldn’t resist! The kids and I went in and enjoyed donuts and chocolate milk, and surely thousands of calories! BTW, I think if you order a dozen they give you a free sample of Lipitor! ha ha!

    Enjoy your spontaneous cravings (you too, Dawn!) for they can be the catalyst to much laughter and fun. And you know that laughter is truly good medicine!

    We love you all!
    -Jennifer
