Duped. Twice. But more importantly!

I heard the faint cry last night around 10:30 pm.

"mommy"

I bolted upstairs.

I knew.

She slightly resembled Linda Blair.

Only no head spinning.

Cleaning and rearranging for the night ensued.

This morning.

No warning.

He was just a pathetic little man sitting in a mess.

I almost joined the club as I cleaned up that time.

Safe now.

On a pallet of well-covered furniture and a trash can near by.

Cartoons.

The whirring and tumbling sounds float from under the door of my laundry room.

I need a nap!

**********************************************************

Today, my friend Andrea is having surgery to remove lymph nodes and have them tested for cancer. On October 29th, she will have a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery for a cancer that is currently contained. She is a mom of young kids. She is not giving "chance" an opportunity.

She is brave. She is strong. She is faithful. She has a strong and supportive network where she lives, including her family.

As you find a moment during your prayers or quiet time, please remember her. Today and in the next few weeks.
