SPN: Sam's Bright Smile

some things I like

  • Up-Inspired Floating House: They sent a real house up, with real balloons! !!!!

  • Harry Potter Alliance: The Harry Potter Alliance fights the Dark Arts in the real world by using parallels from Harry Potter. We work for human rights, equality, and a better world just as Harry and his friends did throughout the books.

  • My son, the stranger: I ADORE Anne Lamott, and this is a story she tells about slapping her teenage son and how it changed everything.

  • Jim's Pancakes: Pancakes as art. No, REALLY! You won't believe it until you see, amazing!

  • Newspaper Nails: So coooool. I want to try this sometime!

  • YOU!

    My Mom just called and my Dad is being rushed into emergency surgery. They're still in Wichita, I can't even talk to him first.

    She kept saying she didn't want me to worry but that I needed to know it was serious. How am I meant to not worry?!!?!

    I am so scared. He's my Dad, he's MY DAD.
    Flowers for You!

    Spoke to Mom and Dad came through his surgery. He had a blockage in his small intestine and they ended up removing a large portion of it. They were able to repair the remaining bits and feel he should recover. He has to stay in the hospital for three to four more days, and then it will be another few days before he'll be up to making the six hour car trip back home.

    My parents both originally are from Wichita. My Mom's two brothers and their families live there still, as does my Mom's best friend. So, even though I can't be there, I'm trying hard to remember that they have lots of love and support even so.

    Speaking of, thank you so much to everyone who has been there for me today. Your kind words mean so much. Maybe it's a ridiculous thing to say, I don't know, but the Live Journal community is important to me. I love that when I need support, you're there to hold me up.

    Clearly I still am emotional. ANYWHO. Thank you guys.
