Rise and Shine! We were up at 4:30 so I could take my doctor ordered shower to remove all traces of my false beauty; the makeup, deodorant, lotions, moisturizers, scent, fingernail polish. Monkey With No Name is wearing her new outfit we bought just for this day and I packed my pink monkey pj’s in my green monkey bag. Suddenly, I was wondering why I bought my MONKEY a new outfit and not myself. It’s too late to go shopping now.
That’s my new advice to young women looking for Mr. Right. If you can’t picture the man in your life holding the bedpan while you hurl into it, you better keep looking. True love shines in the ugliest moments, the hardest trials and the deepest pain. It is an abiding love that feeds on the love of Christ, grows in adversity and has no end, no limits, no barriers.
Love the hospital gown on Monkey.

Mindy, I read your pre and post surgery posts, along with Scott’s letter, to our whole church this morning during the service. (Ok, our WHOLE church is only about 25 people, but they have all been praying this week for you!) Your testamony was very encouraging to our congregation, and everyone felt the Spirit with us. I cried through the whole reading. I miss you so much my dear sister. I am so happy GOD brought you into our life! We continue to pray for your speedy recovery and to be cancer free. Love you,Jenny

Praise the Lord!! What a gracious and godly man you have there. The healing process and time in the hospital is never fun, is it? I think I would not be as patient as you were with the moaner. awful. Two thoughts: I’m glad you weren’t the moaner, and even if you were, there’s only moaning on earth for those who know him.
