Vry frustrated

I am frustrated right now. I told mom if we wanted to get lunch before my MRI appointment, then she needed to be here at 11:30 and it is nearly that now and called her on her phone but have not heard back from her. I don't knwo if she is on the phone with someone else or if her phone is not receiving calls well, and that could be very possible sice we are both on Verizon at the moment. I know I need to be at the hospital around 12:30 for the paperwork and then ahve the MRI at 1:00 and would really like to get a bite to eat before it starts. Hopefully I will be hearing from her in the next few minutes.


Counseling is over

I am finally done with the grief counseling, but must say it was a good experience. I am really fortunate to ahve had such a nice lady that was such a strong Christian but never shoved her Christianity down my throat. It has really given me the perspective that I so badly needed and know that last year this time I would not have been ready or receptive to it as well.
I am tired tonight and my leg is really hurting. I cannot wait until I have the MRI done and find out how bad things really are in my back. I am sure that the experience of the MIR is not necessarily going to be fun, but that is ok too.


My heart is heavy

My heart is really heavy this morning for a friend of mine. Linda and Paul have been taking me to church since they live near me for several months now and I found out late yesterday afternoon that Paul had a fatal heart attack while taking a nap. This really makes me sad because I know that Linda is going through many of the same emotions I went through when Sue died 18 months ago, and believe you me, it is still way to fresh in my memory and always will be, and I guess that helps me to minister more to those who are hurting like she is.
I know that Paul is in Heaven and even though he could be a jerk, at least we are comforted in the fact that he is with our Lord and is no longer hurting from all of the heart conditions he was dealing with as well.
It is really nice to be able to minister to others that are going through what you have already gone through too.
