More Bilateral Friends

Michael Chorost, who wrote Rebuilt about his first cochlear implant, is going bilateral today! Think good thoughts for him! I cannot wait to read his next book!

Also, Dixie, another CI friend in Alabama, will have her bilateral surgery on Wednesday! I met her and her husband in Nashville in August and they are a delightful couple.

More later. . . hope you all are "finding Christmas". . .

I found this song on YouTube and just absolutely love it. I've always loved "Mary's Song" but now this! Listen to it and watch the pictures with the lyrics. . .

Here are the lyrics:

Joseph's Lullaby
Artist(Band): MercyMe

Go to sleep my Son
This manger for your bed
You have a long road before You
Rest Your little head

Can You feel the weight of Your glory?
Do You understand the price?
Does the Father guard Your heart for now
So You can sleep tonight?Go to sleep my Son

Go and chase Your dreams
This world can wait for one more moment
Go and sleep in peaceI believe the glory of Heaven
Is lying in my arms tonight

Lord, I ask that He for just this moment
Simply be my childGo to sleep my Son
Baby, close Your eyes
Soon enough You'll save the day
But for now, dear Child of mine
Oh my Jesus, Sleep tight. . .

I'm Still Here. . .Just Barely

This is just a short post to let my readers know that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. . .I'm dealing with some "stuff" right now and trying to find "Christmas". . .

Tomorrow night is the Knoxville Chapter HLAA (Hearing Loss Association of America) meeting and I am busy getting ready for that. It is our annual Christmas party.

After much thought and prayer, I turned in my notice at work last week. My "boss" and supervisor did not want to take my resignation letter but they both understood my need to step back. I made it to my 10 year anniversary there and my last day will be December 28th. Next year promises to be a busier one with our business and I just can't do two jobs anymore, along with my other commitments and activities. I'll even have more time to blog! And hope to write "my book." I'm looking forward to this next chapter in my life but at the same time I will be sad to leave a wonderful group of coworkers and friends. . .

I'm still hearing new things and hope to find time to write about them this weekend. Hope this finds all of you doing well and looking forward to the holidays. All of our children will be home, including Jason and his new wife, Jessica. We can't wait!
