Grant me patience Lord.................but hurry

Just a little old statement people have been saying for decades but right now it holds a special meaning........... that's my prayer. The surgery went very well but post op they discovered I had a hairline fx in my femur because............you're going to love this........because my bones are small and the retracters were too much for them so they went crack!!!!!! So because of that I have
no weight bearing on the leg for 6 weeks up to 3 months,, depending on how it heals... My vote is for 2 weeks but nobody ask me!!!!!!!!!!!! You can't imagine how often you use the leg and the little things you don't think of until you go to do them and can't............so I have helpers with me most of the time,, my nurse and her family have been there since the start with whatever I need and TQ has been an angel of mercy ,, so has her family, I don't know what I'd do without them, but I still would rather do it myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there's that control thing God is making sure gets broken............because I have no control now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We're down one week ???? to go ,, my prayer and my prayer request is that God gives me the patience to endure this (I know He will)
and the self control to be sweet to those around me --- for their sakes!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
I appreciate all the prayers, cards, notes, phone calls and visits -- it's a diversion and a ray of sunshine in my day so thank you very much!!!! Pastor thanks for taking the time to shop down here so often lately ---I know I originally said don't bother but I'm very glad you have and I loved the visit with the all the babies,,big and small that was a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So God is teaching me patience and letting go- so please pray I get through this (and all the people around me) and still have friends after it's over.... :-) !!!!

You're definitely in our prayers, OFHP, on a daily basis.

And I'm very glad for the chance to bring the Gospel to you, while you are temporarily unable to get yourself to church. That's what we're here for.

My "babies," big and small, are delighted and eager to visit you; so I'm sure we'll see you again before too long.

One day at a time.

Angels don't break glasses or have parents whom they forget to call...
