A Very Tough Day, The Bean Family Needs Your Prayers

Today has been a hard day. Those of you who are looking for a happy and amusing post, please move on along now.

I received a call from my mother this morning letting me know that her husband has died. They managed to use heroic measures and revive him, but I'm not sure how long that will hold. All of you who pray, please pray for my PJBean, Mom (MimiBean) and for the whole Bean family. My Mom finally found this gem of a man in 2003. Their time together has been short, but very happy. As many of you know, PJBean was diagnosed just over a year ago with bone cancer, in addition to having had his kidneys fail. After treatment, his bone cancer had gone into remission, but he has struggled with a variety of ailments since then. He's been in and out of hospital. He had been on strict no contact (meaning all visitors wore masks and gloves and even MimiBean couldn't kiss him). I just called her moments ago (in the midst of planning an emergency flight) and found that they have him alive on life support at the moment. So, now I'm in limbo and will be rushing to finish a great deal of work before the call comes to go. No more lackadaisical days off (like today was going to be). Even this is a bit of a blessing given the pain and discomfort he's been under, so I'll keep giving thanks to God for his knowledge and timing, which is always perfect.

On the plus side, fabulous HelperBean managed to find my missing box of Christmas decorations. As a result, all of the ornaments are now present and accounted for. I'm thrilled about that. I had been worrying about those ornaments in the back of my mind. So, one very small good today and one very big bad. But, I'll keep thanking God for the small blessing as it took my mind off of constant worrying about PJBean. The Beans and I put all of the additional ornaments on the tree and even got to put on tinsel as it was in the same missing box.

At any rate, again, thank you for your prayers (those that pray). You know how helpful they are and we need them now very much.

Happy (or Sad) Blessings.

MommaBean, I saw the email before the post, now I dont'need to ask the why question.

Go in His grace, dear sister. Be carried on His wings. Hug your mom for me...if she is the huggy type.

I had prayed you'd find that box. May ALL that has been lost be found. :)

Sending you positive healing energy (my own way of praying I guess), may you find peace and comfort in your family, and the little things in life.
