"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

That's pretty much how I'm feeling. I've been so crazy busy trying to make sure that everything is "perfect" before I leave to surgery tomorrow morning, that I haven't had a whole lot of time to check my mail. I am (AGAIN!) humbled and so very blessed. I've received over 25 emails, not counting your love-filled comments, that have included phone #'s for me to call, people offering help, many sharing their own experiences and of course, those rockin' prayer warriors completely submersing me in prayer. I even got a couple of emails that covered issues that are on that list of "things you really want to know but are embarrased to ask" topics. Especially with a male gynecologist. THANK YOU TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!!!!!!!!

Yesterday I received a very sweet comment from A Ladyblog. This morning I went to her site and it was so funny to read the second line of her post dated August 23. It mentioned that she was told by someone that "bloggy friends" aren't real friends! Well, you guys have proved that statement wrong!

I probably have met maybe 10 people that read my blog, but I "KNOW" a big majority of you. Not only have you shared in my life, but you've allowed me into yours. I am always humbled and honored when someone writes to me for the first time and shares that they have followed my journey since I was waiting for Kai and shared in our joy when we ended up with the double blessing of AJ, and they are still reading. Many of you offer prayers (my greatest gift to receive!) when I've asked, you've sympathized and empathized with both Anna Grace and I when we were dealing with our struggles, you've encouraged me when I've felt I couldn't go on and you've rejoiced and praised God with me when I've shared the many miracles He has created in my life. You truly are pillars of support. So, tonight I think I will have a glass of wine as a finale before the "you-can't-eat-or-drink-anything-after-midnight" routine and toast to my "bloggy friends".

Thank you Jesus for your precious children on earth who live out Christ in everything they do. YOU are His hands and feet and I praise His Holy Name for allowing me the blessing of knowing you.

Oh - one other thing - we're going to add an 11th commandment - Thou shalt do what thy Scott says. And if you don't I'll be in my car driving all night to make you!
