Lazy Sunday...

I don't have anything to write about tonight.

I wish I was talented enough to make up some crazy story about the adventures of the day and all of the battles we fought. The jungles we ran through and the scary bears we confronted...except, it was just a lazy day at the hospital :)

Cale had therapy this morning, we played cards with another patient, and we had cuddle time. It was rainy outside so all day I was wishing for a good book (full of all those adventures!) and a cup of hot chocolate. Well, I never got the book, but I did get some hot chocolate! A warm cup of Salty Caramel Hot Chocolate from Starbucks-I'm a fan, a really big fan. The last trip to Starbucks they were out, so I was REALLY hoping for some today...and I got it. Happy taste buds! :)

Tonight I had Cale by the sink to help get his teeth brushed. I ran down the hall to get a towel and when I came back, Cale had his finger over his trach scar. He looked at me and said "Ouch, look! ouch!" It's the first time that he's noticed it! This is huge! He realizes that it's not a normal thing. I was talking to Mama at the time, so I quickly hung up the phone with her and talked with Cale about his scar. After telling him that it's better now, he was so excited! It's a really good thing that he knows that wasn't always there...

TJ has been working on our pictures tonight! Can't wait to see them! I'm soooo excited! He sent me a couple sneak peaks...I'm just not sure what to do with my silly face! Haha! They were really funny ones. All I can say is it's a good thing Cale loves me just the way I am! ;)

7) I'm thankful for cuddle time! I absolutely love getting to cuddle with Cale! Before the accident, our favorite time together was at night before we fell asleep. We would cuddle in bed and that was our talking time. We talked about whatever came to our minds and debated about subjects that we thought differently on, or weren't quite sure what we thought. We talked about our dreams and goals, about some stuff that made no sense at all! It was always the best cuddle time. After the accident, I was dying to crawl in the bed and cuddle with him. I remember thinking if I could just get in bed and cuddle, it would make everything better. He had so many tubes and other stuff, I wasn't allowed, but as soon as we moved out of ICU, I found my way into his bed :) Now, cuddle time is what both of us look forward to everyday! I'm so thankful that he's still here for me to cuddle with and now, we can talk again about stuff...the conversation is a little different now, but we're talking! :)

If Cale and I were penguins, this would be us :)

  3. Ha ha .. I can see you as a penguin..LOL.. So glad for the down times for both of you so you can rest. And see you did end up writing a few paragraphs anyway. Just telling us you got the hot chocolate you wanted was an encouragement that God answers even the little prayers...how big is our God for the big things like returning Cale for you for the cuddle time right.? We love you pengie.

  4. Kathleen....I know how much you love to dance! When I got this sent to me, from a friend, I instantly thought of you!
    GUIDANCE.....Dancing With God!!
    When I meditated on the word Guidance, I kept seeing "dance" at the end of the word. I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing. When two people try to lead, nothing feels right. The movement doesn't flow with the music, and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky. When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead, both bodies begin to flow with the music. One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back or by pressing Lightly in one direction or another. It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully. The dance takes surrender, willingness, and attentiveness from one person and gentle guidance and skill from the other. My eyes drew back to the word Guidance. When I saw "G": I thought of God, followed by "u" and "i". "God, "u" and "i" dance." God, you, and I dance. As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust that I would get guidance about my life. Once again, I became willing to let God lead. My prayer for you today is that God's blessings and mercies are upon you on this day and everyday.. May you abide in God, as God abides in you. Dance together with God, trusting God to lead and to guide you through each season of your life....especially this one! You are an inspiration in your desire to dance with the Lord!! Keep on dancing!!!!!!
    Love, blessings & prayers...
