Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Good News

My Mom's hip operation was a high risk because of her heart but I'm happy to say she came through her half hip replacement very well.  We saw her in recovery and she opened her eyes just long enough to see that we were there and then went right back to sleep.  Tomorrow when we go to the hospital we will find out some more about when she can go back near home for the rehab. 

Just before she went for her operation she was very calm and knew that God was in control.  It was something to witness her faith in God.  : ) 

It was a long wait in the hospital and we got to know another family waiting for their family member too.  The time went by a little faster talking with them.  So many people sitting around waiting all with a story of their own.  Makes me even more grateful for my own good health.

We've eaten in quite a few different places this week and I'm looking forward to be able to cook some meals again, though that won't be for a few days yet.

The weather here has been cold and windy.  We've had some snow showers and lots of wind but today it's been a nice sunny day.

I'm hoping tomorrow to be able to get around to do some blog visiting.  I really appreciate all the comments, prayers, and good thoughts from you all.  Bloggers friends really are great.
Thanks again.

  1. Praise God that the surgery is over and went well.

  2. Praise God! I know what it means to observe a mother's faith...my eyes are a bit misty in a good way at the thought. I asked God to remind me to pray for you folks and your mom and step-dad. Had to laugh when I was cleaning today under the sofa and found a dime and a nickel and, yes, I prayed! =D

  3. I'm so happy to hear she's doing well. Continued prayers for all of you.

  4. I am continuing to keep your mother in my thoughts and prayers and wish her a speedy recovery!

  5. So glad to hear the good news about your mom. Going through surgery is quite an ordeal for both the patient and the family ... and I'm saying that from my own experience. I know that great feeling to make contact again after the surgery is over. Blessings to you and take it easy getting back home and into the regular routine.

  6. Very glad to read your news. Hope you all have restful sleep tonight. :-)


  7. It makes me happy to hear your Mum`s operation went well :) and I am also glad to hear about her faith in God. I hope she will recover well. My Dad had a surgery in his hip when he slipped on the ice about a year ago, after some months (3-4 months) he was almost as good as before.

  8. I am so happy the surgery went well! I will keep your mom in my prayers for a complete recovery..

  9. So glad to hear that the surgery was a success. I know it must be comforting to your mom to have you by her side through this ordeal.

  10. Such good news!!
    Sending wishes her way, for a speedy recovery!


  11. I'm glad to hear that your Mom's hip replacement surgery went well. We'll keep all of you in our prayers.

  12. So happy to hear about Aunt Ida and her surgery. Have been reading your blog every day hoping for good news and now we have it. Just need to get her to rehab so she can heal. Keep posting about her recovery. Say hello to Aunt Ida for me and tell her I have been thinking about her.

  13. I'm so glad to know how things went for your mom yesterday. I know it is a relief to have that behind her. The rehab will come along well, too, I am sure. I will continue to pray.

  14. Oh my. She is a very strong lady. Glad things went well.

  15. So glad to hear that things are going well. Prayers for her continued recovery.

  16. Well, I've been catching up for the past two weeks and am happy to catch this good news.
