"Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams. She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplacable role in a great adventure, to be the Beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child's play. They are the secret to the feminine heart."
~ from Captivating - Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul by John and Stasi Elderedge
C is for "Captivating". This really cool book that I just started reading. It is a "Christian Living" book, and it may not be for everyone, but it has already struck a chord with me. So much so, that I have read portions aloud to my husband and daughters, and re-read chapters, before continuing. I am now in chapter six, and have decided that I need to share this book in a women's book discussion group, so I can digest it better. SO, with that in mind, if you are interested in finding out more about the book, you can go here. And if you are interested in joining me for a twelve week "book club" discussion via xanga, go here. I will probably post some about this book here and on my MySpace as I read it, I hope you don't mind...
S is for "Surgery". Rotator cuff surgery, to be precise. Larry had his surgery on Friday April 21, and is doing very well. We are surviving his being home 24-7, and I am still not tired of helping him tie his shoes, wash his hair, cut his steak, etc. I am a little tired, though of not getting enough sleep, because I know he's not sleeping. He's not in much pain, and is taking very little of the prescription medication he has available to him. He sits in a motorized chair 6 hours a day and watches his arm go up and down, in and out, but cannot lift it yet. He often cheats, and goes without his sling, but sometimes guys are that way. (You know you are, guys, so just grin and move on...we love you anyway.) So, he's recovering nicely, and we are mostly enjoying his time at home.
8 is for the number of days I wish there were in a week. I really need some ME time, and I would love to have an extra day...
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Myday...
On Myday, I would read, listen to music, write, watch great movies, go for drives, walk through my neighborhood, and sleep in until at least 10:00 am.
Yep, eight days in a week sounds mighty nice to me.
What would you do with an eighth day in your week?
