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 met Michael and Josh Swiller right after thanksgiving weekend. They were so interesting :)

On the flip side, I am LOVING this holiday season. Every day is Christmas for me!

I had no idea that Michael's surgey was happening so soon, good for him! It will be fun reading about his journey, as it has been reading yours and Jennifer's.

Now that we have Ethan's tube surgery behind us I am ready to find the Christmas spirit. Seeing my family is all I need to feel the love of the season.
