Robby had the best time this morning playing with a little racecar and a toy garage. My mom and I really enjoyed watching him figure out how the car could slide down the ramps. You could almost see his brain working - it was so great. Today was the first time he really "played", you know? He had a goal in mind to get that car down the ramp, and he didn't stop until he reached his goal.
I've got a goal today, too. To pass all the little stones in my body. I had my stint removed today (ouch!), and no stones came out with it. (The doctor who performed the lithotripsy told me that they would come out with the stone.) I cried like a baby in that doctor's office after they took the stint out and told me there were no stones with it. So, now I wait. I've got approximately 5 one millimeter stones to pass on my own now. The kidney stone pain has resumed a little bit, and I am bracing myself for the storm. Hopefully, the pain will not get any worse. And hopefully, I will pass all the stones very very soon..
Speaking of that, I'm gonna go guzzle some more water now.
I am repeating this verse today:
"This is the day the Lord has made.
I WILL rejoice and be glad in it!"
Bottom line is - God is good. No matter what.
So, I am making the choice to thank Him.
To find the beauty that is around me.
There is always beauty.
There is always something lovely to think about.
I am gonna look into the beautiful blue eyes of my children.
I'm gonna hold my husband's hand.
I'm gonna eat some chocolate. :)
And I'm gonna praise Him in the midst of this storm!
