In the last post, I wrote about being "Dead Wrong" and how I wanted to leave this town almost a year ago now. I shared about being hurt then and wanting to retreat. Yesterday, is proof positive yet again, that I would have missed out on the best year thus far and the first few months of 09.
I was told that I was silly for wanting a milkshake from the Braum's that was having its Opening Day. "A milkshake for your birthday? Wow, Camey! You're cheap!" Oh, but in order to have that milkshake - my incredible hubby, Dick, had to do something he normally does not want to. Let's just say he's not a fan of going somewhere on its Grand Opening! Out of his love for me, and given the fact that we didn't go to a Braum's like we normally do when celebrating the anniversary of the day we met (April 10th, 1988), he was more than willing to go. Best milkshake I've had since the one a friend held for me to drinkI in a hospital years ago when I could not hold it on my own. Okay.. call me silly.
I was also asked why I did not take off. I'm at the pcb for 11 to 12 hours normally on Wednesdays. Simply put.. to have taken off and been any where else would not have been celebrating the life that I am so blessed with. I spent time with individuals that this time last year - I did not even know or was just meeting. I also spent time with many whom are dear friends and have taught me more than they could ever realize. I had encounters with individuals that were coming to the pcb that normally do not. Again, feel free to call me silly.
There are other things about the day I could share with you.. like how I am so thankful for all the friends that I have all over the world. How you've each shown me God in ways that you might not ever understand. Or if you did.. you might agree and call us both silly.
Like I said yesterday, the best gift of all is God's love. And even though there might be a lot of "I" in this post.... please realize - there is far more of Him than silly o' me. The evidence speaks for itself....
And again, I'm so thankful to have been dead wrong. W-R-O-N-G can end up being more than right.
As always, dear reader, you've been prayed for.
PS: there's also a free concert the G family is going to on Saturday, 26th for my birthday... Silly again.. free, one of our favorite singers, and worshipping God with my hubby and three sons. Somethings one simply cannot put a price tag on!
