For those of you who don't know, I had surgery on my shoulder last Thursday to remove a pretty substantial chunk of cancerous tissue. With that, I've been put on restrictions from doing much of anything for a month that involves the upper body. With that, I have 2 dogs...let's just say...they shed. So, when the church called and asked if I needed anything (they asked) I said "I need someone to vacuum". Very short. Very blunt. And to the point.
She laughed off my response and advised me that is what my Bible study is for. What? I love these gals, but I'm afraid of asking any of them to do something like that for me. Yet, if they would ask, I would do anything to help them out!
So, after prodding from the church, I asked my Bible study to help me out. Two women came to my home tonight, emptied my dishwasher, vacuumed my home, cleared my gutters and planted some flowers for me. I felt so bad about these requests, but they did them for me anyway. And one gal is going to come by tomorrow to take my trash down to the curb for me. Wow...what a group of women!!!! I feel so blessed.
