Balance

I don't think I've ever been this busy during the summer! I am loving it because I am meeting some great people and really challenging myself to trust others.

Here's an overall snapshot of the last week:

Good - I started my first Bible study ever on Wednesday. The 6 girls that I sat with seem really great. We agreed to sit together again next week!

Good - I started Jenny Craig on the 19th and had my first weigh in on Thursday. I lost 2.3 lbs!

Good - I had a follow-up with my family doc Thursday about continuing my meds for the time being. She was so excited to see me smiling. I was happy that I could make her smile, too :)

Good - I got an iPhone on Friday!

Good - I saw Toy Story 3 and got to hang out with my best friend (with no kids!) on Saturday.

Good - I spent Saturday night out with my new friends from Sunday school celebrating one of their birthdays! Not only that, I also didn't give into temptation and fall off my Jenny Craig plan!

Good - I spent the whole afternoon today with my Sunday school class (and another class) at a pool party. I had an absolute blast and feel so blessed to finally have found people who I know God has given me to learn from and connect with. I cannot wait to continue building these relationships I have started.

Bad - I took my grandma in for more tests on Friday and watched the doctor deliver the news that the cancer has already metastasized to her brain. A memory I wish could be erased...

No amount of good things can balance out the bad this week, but that doesn't make me any less thankful for them.

I am very sorry to hear about your Grandma. I love your gratitude list. Sorry for not stopping by more often. This pilgrimage is not stopping at internet cafes too often. Love from my heart to yours. Paula

Precious Lily, you share a lot of good in this post and I am so very happy for you in that regard. Sorry for your grandmother. I know this is probably a very stressful time for you and your family. You are not alone dear one. You have bloggy friends that are right along side of you. ((((Lily))))
