Tim's hip replacement surgery was Friday the 13th. The surgery went fine, and we were sent home on Monday. We fought fevers and pain most of the week, but through it all we've been blessed with good friends.
Friends have sent cards, visited us in the hospital, visited us at home, prayed for us, called, sent text messages, and made us food. All of this brightened Tim's days, and mine too.
As the care giver, I've appreciated every morsel of food that came our way. We've done this before, but Scott still lived at home. Now we have a dog and no extra help.
So, I've decided to be a better friend to others when they travel this road.
I've reflected on who I could have been a better friend to the last few years.
A couple of people who brought us food are not even our closest friends. I'm not sure if this is part of their ministry to others, but they ministered to my weary soul.
I hope you all have a great week!
