Scratch that. Maybe I should use sports imagery. Maybe this is like halftime. Or back to the musical this could either be the orchestra warming up at the beginning of a full and fabulous Broadway show or this could be the intermission music. Either way all’s quiet on the home front. The kids went to bed reasonably early tonight. Mike is asleep already – praise God! And GiGi (Mike’s mom) has arrived safe and sound.
Tomorrow we pick up Enoch’s 3rd birthday cake, some last minute birthday gifts, and we’ll stop by the neurologist. The MRI has been moved from Saturday to Tuesday and the anesthesiologist appointment is now on Monday. So after tomorrow’s neuro there’s nothing on the appointment horizon until Monday which freaks me out a little bit but also makes me want to randomly go somewhere that’s not sitting on my couch waiting for Monday. So is the orchestra gearing up or will it spend all weekend gearing up or better yet in this not completely working analogy – are we going to play a completely different show this weekend – ie. the birthday extravaganza, everyone enjoy life and try not to freak out dance?
In reading people’s posts on the blog and facebook and comments and everything I’ve felt a wide range of emotions. I’ve cried and laughed out loud. Part of me wants to start doing the whole Wicked
Also – please don’t read this blog or any blog for that matter and think that anyone has anything all figured out. That’s crap. No one of us has the in track to faith, theodicy, or the mysteries of life – much less who the smoke monster really was – but we do serve a God who blesses far beyond our wildest dreams and you guys are that blessing for me. So if life were a musical what would be your song? Glee people – what would be your soundtrack? What is that go to music for you that makes your soul come alive? The dear friends that light up your life?
We’re cranking up the music this weekend and there won’t be any electric slide at this three year old’s birthday party!
