I flew up to Oklahoma City on Thursday afternoon and spent the whole weekend with my girls - talking, laughing, shopping, watching movies, hanging out with friends, and eating! It was so nice to actually be able to get away and to sleep in every morning! We enjoyed the Medieval Fair, worshipped together at Ashley's new church, and laughed hysterically over shared memories of the girls growing up! We also had a wonderful time eating frozen yogurt at PassionBerry. Yes, I said "frozen"!
Friday night we had dinner with some good friends who happen to be in Oklahoma now. Rod and Kellie, and their sons, Nate and Daniel, attended language school with us in Costa Rica when we were new missionaries. Kellie prayed me through language school all those years ago, and she has been praying me through cancer now. They have lived and worked in Santiago, Chile, and Nairobi, Kenya. What a special treat to spend time with them in person after so many years!
As I was flying home yesterday it occurred to me, again, how perfectly God had planned everything out. He has known my schedule all along. I feel like he set the dates for OU Mom's Weekend just for me, right in between my chemo and tests and surgery, so that I would be able to attend. He's good like that.
