HUGE woops.

Sometimes I assume everyone is on Facebook. Sorry. Stupid assumption.

In case you haven't heard, it's the most wonderful news EVER--

PHILL IS NOT GOING. They need him here more than they need him in Afghanistan because they're standing up a new unit here.

I found out two days into my sinus-thing recovery and sobbed with joy, which, well, really hurt my face. But I didn't care. Best news ever. :)

I love this quote. It made me hopeful before we had this amazing break in things, and it makes me hopeful now that I'll be able to handle all the other little things on my "list" of human woes.

"If you are helpless, he is not. If you are lost, he is not. If you don't know what to do next, he knows. It would take a miracle, you say? Well, if it takes a miracle, why not?" -President Boyd K. Packer, speaking of the Savior

Yipee! I am on facebook, but I don't check everyday, so I probably missed the news. I'm glad you get to keep him around. I hope your sinuses are doing better too. :)

Love the quote.

There's another person not on facebook besides me?? I wondered if I was the lone weirdo. ;)

Thanks for the quote.
I'm SO grateful Phill will get to stay.

You know, I really needed that quote today. It's nearly got me crying, but yay, comfort! :/

How exciting! I'm on Facebook, but I didn't see the news, so thanks for sharing here. :)

I absolutely love this quote and I've been thinking about you. I'm so glad Phil gets to stay and I totally feel you deserve this miracle of all people. I love you Rae!

Lara said...

Hooray! I am so happy to see that, because I missed it on FB.

Anna said...

I missed it on FB too. I'm so happy for you Rae. Isn't it wonderful how things turn out just right after we turn it over to Him?

Liz said...

YEAH!!! That is great news, Rae! I know you must be relieved . . . wow. I also love the quote by President Packer.

Susan said...

I am so happy for you! That has got to be a HUGE relief! Miss and love you and sending lots of constant prayers your way!
