Four posts in 24 hours - that may be a record for me. In a few minutes I will rise from my big green chair and start packing for my weekend getaway with my mom and sis. Melissa and I received these instructions by text message a few hours ago:
"Sweeties, don't forget to bring a larger suitcase with room to take stuff home." Wonderful, wonderful words for a daughter to hear! This is our first girls weekend in about two and a half years and it is much needed. Curt's mom and sis are coming to stay with my boys and I know they will have a blast too.
While I am looking forward to spending this fun time with my mama, my heart is heavy for one of my best friends and old roommate, Mel. Mel's mom has been battling ovarian cancer for four years. Next week she will have a PET scan to see if there are any tumors. If there is more than one tumor, the surgeon will not operate on her again. If she does not see more than one, Mel's mom has another chance at fighting this. Mel is enlisting some prayer warriors on her blog. If the Lord prompts your heart, please pray for Mrs. Roberson and consider leaving Mel a word of encouragement. Thanks a million! Y'all are the best.
I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend with friends and family. I will be back next week for a full report on the joys of eating well, shopping till we drop, and just hanging out with my two favorite women in the world. I'm still waiting to hear from Courtney and Jennifer's people about doing lunch, but there's still time!
