Thumbs Up Thursday


Thumbs Up for our AMAZING family and friends!  I can't help but devote this week's entire Thumbs Up Thursday to each and every one of you that has called, texted, emailed, posted comments, written cards and letters and stopped by to let us know that you are thinking about and praying for our Harper-girl as she gets ready for Friday.   And then to open our front door this morning to find a basket filled with little treasurers, cards, bible verses and words of encouragement!  Oh my, we are overwhelmed with gratitude. 
As we head towards Friday, we can't help but feel anxious and scared.  We know Harper is in the BEST of hands and that the preparation she's had over the last eleven months has made this surgery as low risk as it could possibly be.  If I haven't responded to you over the last week, let me apologize.  We've tried to keep busy and keep our minds off of Friday but please know how appreciated your words have been and that they haven't gone unnoticed. 

We head to Houston today.  We will check Harper into Texas Children's at 6am on Friday morning.  Her surgery is scheduled to begin at 8am and surgery is expected to last a couple of hours.  I will try to keep the blog updated as we get news on Friday.  I ask that you continue to cover Harps in your prayers for a successful surgery and a quick recovery. 

"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
-Joshua 1:9

You've been on my mind all week. My cell phone is set for 8:00 in the morning to serve as a reminder to flood the gates of heaven with prayers for Harper, the doctors, and for you guys.

I will certainly be saying prayers for Harper and your family. It is such a joy to read your blog and makes me feel at ease about Katelyn's "O". Try and get some rest tonight :-)

We will be thinking of your fine family and your sweet babe during Harpers time of surgery and recovery. We send thoughts of strength, patience, love, peace, and calm as we go to the Lord in prayer. My children will be blowing kisses Harpers way, as they speak their “happy thoughts” during dinner time prayer.
