Gettin me some implants ;)

So today was one of those days if you know what I mean. I woke up first thing and sensed the Lord urging me to just get on my face. As I was there prostrate before the Lord, I know the Holy Spirit was just interceding for me because I didn't quite know what to say other than "help". Not because anything is horribly wrong, but because I have had a pretty frustrating week and I am hungry for some time by myself with Jesus. Rod began to wake Morgan up and of course I threatened him...because I really needed time with the Lord and the Lord alone...not the Lord and Morgan. I love her so, I do. It just seems that she is ALWAYS up the second I get up and I am about to pass out before the child goes to bed. She is sitting next to me eat goldfish right now...ahhh...screaming bye Larry Boy (Veggie Tales).
Let me just tell you, my child and I went to the park today and yesterday and this time she got really careless and ran until she came one inch from falling into the little lake, and all I could think about was how she was getting dirty and how I was about to fall into this pond-scum lake to go after her...thank you Lord that didn't happen. She then attacks the ducks (once again) and they hiss at her and we both screamed and ran. We feed them bread, and Morgan decided to pick it up and eat some to (SICK). I know Morgan has a busy angel after her from all of the ways we could potentially have some crazy accidents...she is a little miracle. (Matthew 18: 10"See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.) She also learned what most children learn: how to slide down steep embankments while your mother tries to run after you.
My mouth has been K-I-L-L-I-N-G me today, thus adding to my irritation. I had a crown come off and then my tooth got infected so now due to several reasons, my tooth will have to be extracted. So, the implants I mentioned earlier is a new tooth eventually. I did not realize until I was talking to my MIL that getting a tooth implant was going to be a really painful thing. That must be why the dentist had a let's try to break it to her gently face when he told me the news of some cell stuff eating the bone or some kind of medical language that I should know.
Morgan was in rare form today and I truly felt like I was a hamster running on a wheel. We went in Lifeway and the child screamed Veggie Tales at the top of her lungs as all of the shoppers looked at us as if they had never been around a two year old. Morgan had a rough day and I had to explain to her that she was not getting any Veggie Tales and she had been disobedient all day and was not going to be rewarded for bad behavior. I then went on to explain to her that the Lord doesn't bless mommies disobedience because He loves her.
We met up with my friend Abby and she was so sweet and gave Morgan a sweet little outfit and the cutest flip flops (I wish gymboree made them in my size). She is a kindergarten teacher and loves my baby. I like to be around people who share my love for Morgan. She also brought little old me some of the cutest clothes ever. I felt so blessed and was so thankful. She also gave her a huge tub of books and games. I will have so much fun re-living my childhood with hi ho cherry- o. No but really the coolest thing is that Morgan and I were in a consignment shop a few weeks ago and she really wanted this Leap Frog thing and I told her we were going to have to wait on that. Anyway, Abby gave her one for free today. Coincidence...I think not! The Lord doesn't have to do that sort of stuff, but I am going to go ahead and praise Him for being so in to the details! I won't bore you any more as my laptop is about to die anyway. I just won't be sleeping with my tooth and I am not being dramatic!
ps ROD did not snore last night...I even got scared and checked to make sure he was alive since he wasn't snoring.

Bless your heart, I don't deal real well with the whole dental experience. I'll keep you in my prayers. My lil' angel (and I use that term loosely) has had a horrible stomach virus and for the first time ever we made it through at the pediatricians without a total meltdown!! (happy dance) Congrats also on the snore free night. My DH is in the guest room due to his nightly nasal concerts!
Blessings to you and yours,

Girl! I hear some sheparding in your voice! I am so sorry about your tooth! I am gonna be praying for you some relief! Your poor mouth! You know that you can always call me if you need some time alone!

Oh, girl! I'm sorry about your day. Our children are some of the most precious people we will ever love this much, but boy, can they drive us to the edge of insanity!

Mark just spent some time in the dreaded dentist chair - he finally said, "What are you trying to do to me, woman?!" (to me) I'm glad they got finished before he got too mad at me! I'm not fond of it either.

Kids can give us the BIGGEST heart attacks can't they - hehe
Oh and I guess all of us praying for the snoring has resulted in God answering that prayer!
I just hope it stays silent over there - LOL!
God bless,
