My stomach is feeling much better after shifting medications around. May do some additional shifting at my next appointment as I am requesting to be placed on insulin rather than on medications. We shall see how things go.
The kids and Art are doing great, counting down to the start of spring break on April 14. The four of us are planning a short trip to Yosemite during their time off.
I participated in another mud run obstacle course in Sacramento on March 22 with a team of eight other women from various walks of my life. You can see by our photo that we had a blast! If you'd like to join in on the next one, it will be in Pleasanton on October 25. Please go to http://www.godirtygirl.com and register for the "Oakland" run. Join the team "No Sister Left Behind" and for the 9:45 a.m. wave. You can use a discount code MUDGAL10 for a $10 price break.
I'm halfway through Deuteronomy and I am enjoying it much more than Numbers! I'm also reading Philip Yancy's book, "The Bible Jesus Read" and it has been very helpful. The entire theme of Deuteronomy is REMEMBRANCE and it's written at the end of Moses' life. It's challenged me to remember God's faithfulness in my life and how consistent that faithfulness has been. God has never been about the "good times" or the "bad times" but about his being God.
He's all good. That makes my life, in spite of having cancer, good as well. In fact, I continue to feel as if I'm living a "charmed" life (for lack of a better word), as I know many whose struggles are far more extensive and far more painful than mine.
Living my daily miracle and being grateful for it.
