New Eyes

Many of you know that I had LASIK surgery on both eyes this past Thursday. I will say that this is proving to be the most beneficial thing I have ever spent money on in my life! I am so amazed at how I can see the alarm clock in the middle of the night and how I am able to see the ceiling as I go to sleep and as I wake. I have prayed that God would give me new eyes to see people in need that I often pass by on a day to day basis. I have found that some of those people have been my own children as I am caught up in the busy-ness of life. This week I have tried really hard to make sure to show and tell them often how much I love them and also to take time with them. Marybeth kicked a hole in the sheetrock in the hallway last week during a bedtime tantrum. I am reading many parenting books currently and praying that God will give her the ability to overcome her anger and to react and respond in different ways. Mallory is enjoying summer camp at school and both are looking forward to VBS this next week at First West. Paul is keeping busy at the Children's Home with recreation stuff right now. My knitting is going well. I just finished a cute little sweet pea hat for John Martin Arabie, born yesterday to Kelly and Trey. I can't wait to meet him. I have a new blankie on my needles for the girls for their car blankets. They are going to be cutie patootie! Will post some new pics soon.
