Keep Calm & Carry On

Keep Calm and Carry On. Good advice for the British during World War II? And good advice for me now?

But... I'm feeling nothing but calm. And I realized last night... of course, in the middle of the night... that sometimes you just gotta cry. It doesn't mean you have given up or that you are being negative. But the emotions can just be too much sometimes, and you have to let it out. Well... now that i have a mustache from blowing my nose so much :o), I'm heeding my friend Julie's advice. I'm putting my big girl panties on. But it's okay if the big girl panties sometimes don't fit... especially if you have one tushie like me.

Which reminds me... kind of embarrassing... but once, okay maybe twice, my panties fell down while i was walking. See... a bag was rubbing against my right hip while i was walking/crutching, and it pushed them down right off of me :o). Oddly enough, this was not my life's most embarrassing moment, but it would qualify for America's Funniest Home Video. Fortunately for me, it was before the cell phone and you tube era.

Well... i haven't been up to much after my return from New York on Saturday. Got my state car inspection. Woooohoo! Big bucket list item there :o) Got a pedicure from Juan. He said, "good thing there's only one" :o). And i went to see the shrine to Saint Katharine Drexel... to solicit more prayers :o).

Well... I'll get my test results tomorrow. As my dear friend Anna would say, "Let's flood heaven with prayers. And Jesus will be like, say what?" I'ld be lying if i said i wasn't a wee bit scared, but i'm only human (thanks, Nicole, for reminding me). And for now, as my baby sister would said, my fingers are crossed, my toes are crossed, and even my eyes are crossed.

  3. Crossing everything possible, and praying extra hard for the most positive of outcomes! You got this! ~ Dana

  4. Prayers, prayers and more prayers for you. I have been following another blog called Chasing Rainbows. I hope the link works. The writer is Kate Leong. As the Irish do...she is my cousin's cousin. I have felt for awhile that you two so be connected. Saint Katherine Drexel restored her son's hearing. When you mentioned her tonight, I felt compelled to write. I must tell you her 5 year old son, Gavin died on April 14. Both Gavin and Kate are incredible people. I hope you find strength in the story. Peggy Pearce

  5. Praying and sending many, many positive thoughts and lots of positive energy your way, Lisa!
