I hope you all have a great and wonderful Christmas with family and friends. We are hanging at home. I’ve got a brisket slow cooking in the oven which is making this house smell really wonderful!
My surgery went well, I can actually see. I still can’t read street signs and use reading glasses to see up close. Whenever I get discouraged, I just close my right eye and see how blurry the left eye still is and get a better perspective that for the first time in what seems like forever, my right eye sees so much better than my left. I also notice that when I’m tired, my left eye tries to take over and all I see is blur. I’m looking forward to Thursday and my left eye surgery!
As my surgery is later in the day, I’m able to eat breakfast! YAY … you have no idea how thrilled I am about that! That rebel in me, when told not to do something, I want to. I think hubby was right, instead of telling you to NOT eat after midnight, they should say, don’t have breakfast. Because I was watching the clock and ate up to my deadline.
We had 6 Christmas Eve services at church, starting Saturday through Monday night. It is always a wonderful experience to be there and see everyone, as well as watching the program. Even through they are the same, there is always a slight variation … poetic license if you will. So one doesn’t mind watching all 6, even if 5 of them are on the monitor in the lobby.
I just love the Elders of my church. The Lead Pastor & Elder is with family out of state as his dad had just died. So that left the other 2. After the last service, I walked into the lobby and there they were, as I walked up, they gave me a hug, and we continued to kid each other. It brought me back to high school. I’d hang out with the guys in school and that moment was a pleasant realization how much I love the comradery with the Elders! It is truly a blessing to work with these guys, the other pastors and the rest of our wonderful staff!
Again, you all have a Merry Christmas and enjoy your family & friends!
