First of all, I FINALLY have the date for the biopsy. It is to be next Mon morning at 8:00 am...It seems almost impossible to wait ANOTHER whole week, and yet it is what it is. I should have the results by the following Thursday which means no doubt next week will be hard. I continue to MAINLY rest in Him with the whole thing, but I will confess that there are those moments when my eyes waver off of Him and I find myself fearful and apprehensive. I must keep praying and trusting, and not leave any room for the enemy to work. I will soo appreciate your continued prayers with this whole experience.
Then, we are prayerfully considering buying a mobile home in a beautiful senior citizens park. There is MUCH involved. I am not going to go into details, but it is a REALLY big step for us. At 55 my daughter feels we are WAY too young for this park yet, but I have assured her we are of legal age, haha. If circumstances were different we probably wouldn't be considering this yet, and yet, AGAIN, it is what it is. The park is BEAUTIFUL and surrounds a lake and is so peaceful, and I can soo easily picture us being very happy there. The mobile home is 1900 square feet, so while I will have to get rid of things (my home for the last 25 years is around 2600 sq. feet) it is still big enough for my family to gather together when we can. This was NOT easy to find ~ one that was big enough and yet still affordable. It would require a "little" bit of work, and yet not enough to be too expensive or a burden to get done. All of this happening WHILE I wait with the possibility of dealing with breast cancer is somewhat overwhelming, and yet the timing AGAIN, is what it is. I know the Lord knows all of these details so I will just wait on Him. Have I mentioned I DON'T wait well? haha But the most important thing is feeling sure this is God's will for us right now. So AGAIN, I covet your prayers on this issue, and I will keep you posted as to what and where He leads us.
Now onto to some "lighter" subjects, haha...My Melly is officially FINALLY & COMPLETELY done with grad school and all of her student teaching and is putting out her resume's as I type this!! I am soo proud of her. She has worked hard and LONG and I am praying she finds just the right spot. She is hoping for KG - the 3rd grade, but of course will take anything available. The school and budget cuts have hit New Mexico now so it will be ALOT more difficult to get a job then it was last year at this time. I can't bear for her to have worked this hard and long only to not find a job, but I do PRAISE GOD that the money for her is not the issue as much as it is just her hearts desire. She would make SUCH a wonderful teacher, so I pray He works out all of the details. She student taught a 2nd grade this entire last semester and her last day was a couple of weeks ago and the faculty and the students both gave her big parties. She said she got soo many wonderful things that it took her 4 trips to get it all to the car. They also had a cake made in the shape of a chalk board. I stole a few of her pics off of facebook to show you....

I MISS HER SOOO MUCH!
THE DARLING CAKE
THE WREATH FOR HER DOOR
And finally, I had SUCH a wonderful Mother's Day week-end and I am hoping you all did as well. I had LONG visits, flowers, a movie, a new nightie, perfume, candy, a fruit edible arrangement (soo yummy) cards, wonderful dinners but most of all the best kids ever to celebrate with. My hubby and I took my mom & dad to the Candlelight Pavilion and saw Thoroughly Modern Millie on Sat. night. What a good time we had. The food was wonderful and the play made you want to dance and sing along. Love you soo much mom!
I am sorry this was soo long. There is so much on my mind. I am just taking a day at a time and sometimes a moment at a time. I am so grateful that I have the Lord to lean on, such wonderful family and friends that love me, and ALL OF YOU as well. Whatever would I do without it all?
A quick side note....Melody just called and she has her first interview tomorrow at 9 am for the third grade! Please keep this in prayer.... = )
