The good news is that I am here and we are well.
The bad news is that I cannot access my Google Reader for some crazy reason.
Which would have been helpful at 3:30 this morning when Sophie the puppy thought it was her 6 am wake up time. I was unable to fall to sleep, and unable to pass time by catching up on the blogs.
I decided to go to my side bar and use that to catch my fave blogs, but I realized that I haven't updated that side bar in over a year.
So do me a favor and leave a comment so I can get to your blog. And then I can update my sidebar too!
Oh, and I had so much fun reading your comments to yesterdays post...so fun!
All right, it's time for a third cup of coffee and then a nice walk outside in that dry heat!

Our plans have changed for the day. We were supposed to go lunch with friends, but they are under the weather. As consolation, I am about to take the kids to the pool for a morning of swimming.

It wasn't long after I met TheCarPoolQueen that I began to get a feeling that I needed to ask her to come speak.
I was nervous about asking her, We had only just met, and although I had read her blog and knew she had a story to share, I didn't know any of the details. But in March, I asked if she'd come tell us her story.
She graciously accepted.
I felt confidant that this was the right thing, but I didn't realize that I was about to witness an answer to prayer in a way that only God can orchestrate.
Susan did speak last night. She talked about her faith in God in a lesson she entitled: Truth Taught Through Triplet Trials.
I can only say that I wish you had been there as she encouraged us to trust God when it seems that all is lost. To obey Him not only in our actions, but also in our heart. To remember that the desert places in life are not just about us, but about others who might walk the same road in the days to come. She challenged us to cling to God while in the desert so our experience can someday be used as an encouragement, a deep glass of water to those walking thirsty in a desert of their own.
She didn't sugar coat the things God has used in her life that are hard, but she glorified God in the hard things.
It was just a very good night; in the right place, at the right time, with the right people, and I feel incredibly blessed to have been a part of it.
Yesterday I read the 13 verse of chapter eight in the Song of Solomon, and as I thought of the ladies in attendance last night, and as I shared Susan's story with The Mister last night, and again with a friend today, the verse came back to my mind:
Your companions are fortunate to hear your voice.
Song of Solmon 8:13 (NLT)
Indeed, we truly are.

The Lord answered Abraham, "If I find fifty good people in Sodom, then I will spare the whole city for thier sake." Abraham knew there were not fifty people who trusted God in wicked Sodom. He said, "Behold, now, I have taken it upon me to speak unto the Lord, I who am but dust and ashes. Perhaps there will be five less than fifty righteous....."

Yesterday was probably not the best day I have had in the history of my motherhood career.
