Let's start with my dental nightmare. I NOW have an abscess on my gum. Yeah - sounds like fun - doesnt it? I've been taking antibiotics for it but its not going away. I'm at the point where I'm trying to "ignore it away" - think it'll work? Its not really painful or really swollen - just a white dot on my gum at this point. I just want to put a needle in it & pop it but Ricky yells at me each time I say that. Oh well - I'll be spending the whole day in 2 different dentist chairs next Thursday so I'll see what they say then.
Last night was the small group for the jr/sr high girls. We had 7 girls show up this time - & it was so good! Our topic was "I have a messed up family" out of the book "Secrets every young woman keeps"....as always, we had some good laughs & some good discussions. These girls are just awesome & I am so blessed with every opportunity I have to spend with them. These young girls are going to grow up to be some mighty young women for God!!!! I already have them freaked out because next week - the topic is "I hang around people I shouldn't".....that's going to be interesting!!!
Some AWESOME news.....my dear friend Ryan - HE MADE IT IN THE POLICE ACADEMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All those prayers that I've asked for him over the past few months - they have been answered! He got the news yesterday! He goes to orientation in 2 weeks & starts the 7 month journey in the Police Academy. I was calling him "Officer" all night!!! He really needed some good news & this is just so exciting for him! Now, we need prayers to continue to get him through the Academy & now with his journey in this field - it'll be a constant prayer of safety! God is good!!!!
And I'll just end this randomness with a picture......I was doing the white load of laundry & felt like I was folding white t-shirts forever!!!! I ended up counting - there are 47 t-shirts here!!! These are Ricky's white ones - not even his colored ones - & not even ALL his white ones - his drawer is still full of them.....OK - I may have an addiction to yarn - but I think last night after my back was KILLING me from folding all these shirts, I think I found what Ricky is addicted too. I made him come look & count them all. What did he say to me this morning? Do you know if I have any clean t-shirts? Sometimes, I could punch him!
Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
