Autumn or Fall

Well, as the colors slowly change, things start to feel new again. It has been a hard time missing my Hercules and we have felt so empty around here. We couldn't take it anymore and went down to one of the lost dog/ rescue places and got ourselves an old hound dog. Actually, he is a new hound dog - only 1 1/2 yrs old and quite a cutey. His name is Copper and he has helped lift our spirits quite a bit.

I am now getting ready to go for surgery in the morning. They are going to replace my other hip/femur with another big steel rod. The Bionic Woman! I am so not looking forward to leaving to the hospital for another week or whatever it will be. It is so hard to be away from everyone for so long. I am going to take my scriptures and try my hardest to stay connected.

I haven't been to church in over a month - 5 weeks I think. I have never done that before and it does feel so lonely. Of course, I know the Lord is with me wherever I am, but it just feels like when we go to church its our special meeting place and He's expecting me....anyway, I just miss church and all the sisters there.

So many people have written me little notes and I thank you for thinking of us and keeping us in your prayers. I do believe that you all are praying me alive. I do. Sometimes, when I do feel weak or sick and tired, I can feel the Lord taking pity on me and carrying me along for a while. Thank you all so much for interceeding on my behalf - He does listen.
