Forty-fourth Monday

Today, instead of an auto mechanic waiting room,  I sat in a hospital waiting room.  My friend, Rachel was having major surgery.  Thinking back over the weekend and seeing all that has transpired, I felt incredibly thankful for:

the body of Christ
so many caring friends who came by to visit dear Rachel
tag team companions
generosity and the purchase of a plane ticket
guitar and songs in a hospital room
fall flowers brightening R's hospital stay
R's mom arriving before the surgery
loving notes in a hospital room guest book
colored pencil drawings, too
kind nurses
tender hearted PA
caring, skilled doctors
medicine to ease my friend's pain
creative caregivers
prayer warriors
love poured out
the One who knows our weakness
and gives peace
lessons learned in waiting
incredible medical technology
encouraging phone calls
so very much love!

We had a good friend in surgery this past week too - he's doing well now but it was touch and go for awhile. Lots of prayers and love for him this week too. Glad that your friend is also surrounded.
