Living Simply so others can Simply Live

Happy Almost Thanksgiving!  These pictures are snaps from Halloween, and unrelated to the post below, but they say kids & puppies get people's attention & honestly, who doesn't love to see a picture?  

This is a great post, given to me, second hand, from a friend of mine in MN, Corrie Luebke.

It speaks to what I often times am struck with and believe to be true.  Not everyone will agree, but that's ok.  It's still a good challenge.

The Waiting....

 This morning, we prayed, kissed, cried & sent Dad into the hands of his surgeon, Dr. Tell & his expert team.  Dad will be having his heart surgery (triple bypass) today @ Mercy Hospital.  Surgery starts @ 730 a.m. & as we are waiting, I thought of the Dr. Suess book - Oh The Places You'll Go...this specific section.

You can get so confused
that you'll start in to race
down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace
and grind on for miles across weirdish wild space,
headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.
The Waiting Place...
It's nothing spiritual, or even profound, but it's what popped into my head.

We have been & are encouraged by all your prayers & comments.
