Lights in the Darkness....

" Although the world is full
of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it."
Helen Keller
Tonight as we went past the Catholic Church it was lit up for Saturday evening Mass. It's lights beckoning me to come in. I stopped and took a picture of the warm lights that lit the darkness. I hope this picture cheers you as much as it did me.

This is my little grand baby Chloe. She will be 2 in February. My oldest son and his wife were down here this past week and I was able to visit with them for awhile.
Elizabeth and I had collected : faerie wings, sunglasses, tutus, necklaces, a wand and a bunch of other girly things for her for her birthday, but decided to give them to her early.
She looked at everything and said," Wow!" She put her little tiara on and said, " Me princess Chloe". I will never forget that. She is not even 2 yet but can talk so good. She loves our cat Sade and our little pups Coco and Ariel. She is so much like her Daddy when he was little. The same blue eyes... I love our Chloe. ~Nita~

John's Surgery Went Great!

This is a picture of our pup Coco on the right. The stuffed animal on the left looks almost just like her. John bought her for me when I had surgery about 9 years ago.
We took the stuffed animal that looks like Coco to the hospital after his accident so John would be comforted.
John's surgery went really well. He had surgery yesterday at 12:30. Also, he does not have to lay on his stomach !! The surgeon found out he had a Sports Bed (thanks Lee) and said since he has one of these, he can lay on his back and sides. Isn't that great? I was so happy for him.
He is at the same hospital but a different floor. He will be there for several weeks now. Here is the address for those who want to send cards.

He really looks forward to the mail. And all of your cards have really pulled him through alot of the loneliness and sadness of this situation. Thank you all so much for your kindness and love. I will be posting a Christmas post tomorrow, but tonight I wanted to update everyone.
I stayed the night in the hospital with John last night in case he needed me, and stayed all day today. He is doing so well though. Thanks for all your prayers for him it was much appreciated. The power of prayer is strong. On a closing note, I saw a rainbow on the way home tonight from the hospital. Rainbows and butterflies have always been a personal symbol to me of hope. My heart felt so much lighter tonight, lighter than it has in a long while.
For everyone out there looking for hope tonight I am here to encourage you. Have hope friend, the Lord will see you through your difficulties. He is helping me and He will help you too.
