"There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is." Albert Einstein

Mike is claiming another small miracle in his continuing recovery. He started another round of therapy yesterday with the same therapist he had a couple of months ago. The strength and movement in his left leg is so improved that even she called it a miracle. Could it be his brain is rewarding him for cutting out the alcohol? It was probably a contributing factor, whether he agrees with me, or not. Please keep him in your prayers as he continues to struggle with this and to work toward recovery from his stroke.

Last night's party was a blast. The Yum-Yums seemed to be a crowd favorite. The cabaret hour fizzled into a dance party with cd's from the disco years, but choir members were so tired by then no one seemed to mind. I have a feeling there will be plenty of opportunities in the future to perform some of the solos that didn't get done, mine among many. The crowd wanted to dance, so I'm glad James and David decided to take it in that direction. Pictures and videos will be added to our church's website soon. I made a few pictures which haven't been edited yet, but I will add them to my Flickr site in the next day or two.

LaRue's new granddaughter Marlee K made her debut at 10 lbs and 6 oz. at 12:37 PM on the 16th. My goodness, Laurie, that's a lot of baby to deliver! I hope you recover soon. She must have known she was coming into a family with 3 big brothers. LaRue has pictures on her blogsite. She's a cutie.

Benji has added Pip's birthday celebration pictures to his Flickr site. The train tent I sent was bigger than I realized. Looks like they all had fun.

Cathy, I'm so glad last night was a success, and maybe y'all can have another event soon where you can show off your talent. I can't believe you've been "hiding it under a bushel" from the folks at your church.

What great news about Mike's improvements. You know I'll keep praying for him and for you.

On my way out the door to the hospital. More pics to come.
