I told Daughter her new Boy Friend needed to call me. He did, and I told him that Daughter had a history of sexual abuse, and didn't like men touching her. I went on to say she'd actually made false accusations in the past. He decided they'd stick with phone calls for now. Daughter is disappointed, I'm relieved.
I saw the orthopedic surgeon today. While my arm hasn't healed, there is definite improvement. I go back in February for "one last x-ray." I'm relieved.
I've been busy as we gear up for fall. I'm excited about the plans we are making. God is doing exciting things at the church, and it's amazing. This past week I had a board meeting, scheduled interviews for a new childcare provider, wrote interpretive material for out fall theme, visited a woman who has had a recurrence of her cancer, and is quite frustrated with her doctor, worked on our website, helped plan a Taize worship service, picked music through the first Sunday in October, walked the prayer path one of our members is building through the woods on our property, dealt with property issues, visited with people dropping in, and laughed. We laugh a lot in the office. We love what we are doing, and have a genuine joy about it. I love it when I get to do a bit of everything. It is a huge stress reliever when Daughter is more relaxed and happier. Knowing that my bones are finally healing is wonderful.
