I just wanted to say that my heart is warmed and encouraged every time I get a Facebook post, phone call, email, blog comment, card or flowers! I am overwhelmed (in a good way) by the outpouring of love.
Many have asked what they can do. I wish I knew the answer, but know that I am documenting your offers and will call you when I do know what I need.
I did want to reach out to those of you that are local and say that I would love visits during the daytime when you're free. I am anxious about being alone right now and would love company. I have to add however, that I'm not good at coordinating or scheduling right now, especially with all the unknowns, doctor appointments, tests, etc.
So, you're probably asking, if Rachel doesn't know what's going on, how could I? For now, my suggestion is if you ever feel like taking a drive to Germantown, just call first and see if I'm home. Chances are I'd love to see you. If you don't have my phone number, just email me for it. As time goes on and I figure out what I need, I have a dear cousin Karen who is going to be my Volunteer Coordinator Extraordinaire.
Also, so many of you probably don't know what to say or are nervous about talking to me (I totally would be if the situation was reversed). I just want to put your minds at ease and let you know that it's FINE to not know what to say. I hope I can be easy to talk to in spite of all this. And I still want to know about your life too. Just because I have something big going on definitely doesn't mean the rest of the world has stopped spinning. I hope this helps. :)
Tonight, I am having some anxiety and my heart is racing. I don't know what that's about...probably just a physical reaction to lack of sleep and emotional upheaval. Please continue to pray for peace and HEALING!!! Oh Lord, I want to be healed. Not my will, but Yours be done.
