Angel Friends

First of all, my deepest sympathies to anyone who had family in Ft. Hood that were injured or killed. What a horrible pointless tragedy. My prayers are with you.

Now for something positive and wonderful and uplifting. I met a real, live angel today. Her name is Kathy, and she's the one of the kindest, warm-hearted people I've ever met. My dear and precious friend Shawn (who is also one of the kindest, most warm-hearted people ever) passed around a list at her Bible study for people to sign up to come and help me for 2 hours a week doing whatever...cleaning, helping with Jacob, etc. God Bless you Shawn! It's so frustrating not being able to keep my house clean! Like even sweeping (with a broom)....I can do about 2 or 3 passes, then I have to rest my arms. Ug.

So last week, a friend came TWO days in a row for more than 2 hours and cleaned. Today, Miss Kathy came over and cleaned from like 10 til just after 3. And she said she wants to come back once a week until it's "done." Can you BELIEVE that? Just when you think there aren't any decent people left...God shows you in a big way that you just can't give up. What a precious, precious lady. And she didn't even KNOW me. I just met her today~ That's what gets me. I have a few friends who are amazing and wonderful and would do anything for me...(love you girls!) and then there are people who I've known all my life, and, well, let's just stop there, because I'm at a happy place right now.

THANK YOU KATHY!!!! What a blessing!

You know, this disease is so bizarre. I think it has given ALMOST as much as it has taken. God has shown me things I never would have seen, good and bad, without MG. I wouldn't change it. I love what I have now that I wouldn't have, even with all the ugliness.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - love your blog - I'll be back. I'd never heard of MG - I goggled it and it sounds like an awful disease - love your attitude and sooo glad you found an angel! If I lived closer I would come once a week and it would get done twice as fast... I am assuming we live far apart - maybe you are close to small town Alberta, Canada....???? So nice "meeting you"!!!! A bright spot in a dark day!

How nice of them! Yes, there are good people out there...angels on earth. I believe they're richly rewarded for their good deeds.
