The Girls Enduring the WAIT

Here we are together, waiting during Great's Brain Surgery
Our cheerfulness is the result of reading dear sweet Tosha's Blog Post about Missing Missy.  (If you haven't read it, be prepared:  you might find yourself laughing to the point you'll fall off your chair!  Truly, it's very, very, very funny!) Perhaps, laughter is the BEST medicine!
As promised, for the benefit of her grandsons (and great-grandsons) here's the shot that shows the doo-hinkies they stuck on Great's head - complete with the purple marker!!  She had to wear these for an entire day before her surgery. There's one barely visible at the top of her forehead and others behind her ears.  Apparently, this IS modern technology and medicine in action!


OUR INSPIRATIONAL FAMILY FOCUS is from Pres. James E. Faust: 
 

"The miracles of modern technology have brought efficiency into our lives in ways not dreamed of a generation ago, yet with this new technology has come a deluge of new challenges to our morals and our values. Some tend to rely more on technology than on theology. I hasten to add that scientific knowledge, the marvels of communication, and the wonders of modern medicine have come from the Lord to enhance His work throughout the world. As an example, the Church’s FamilySearch® Web site has more than seven million hits a day. But Satan, of course, is aware of this great progress in technology and likewise takes advantage of it for his purposes, which are to destroy and despoil. He delights in the pornography on the Internet and the sleaze in many of our movies and television shows. He has even engineered some of his own satanic messages into some of our modern music. For the seeds of faith to sprout in our lives, we must avoid Satan’s grasp.

...We particularly want you ...to have a strong testimony, with solid roots, because only then will it be an unerring compass for you, enabling you to withstand the strong winds of adversity which blow. We believe the salvation of the world has been placed upon the priesthood of this Church. This responsibility rests squarely upon us. We cannot shirk it. As President Gordon B. Hinckley said:
 

“If the world is going to be saved, we have to do it. There is no escaping from that. No other people in the history of the world have received the kind of mandate that we have received. We are responsible for all who have lived upon the earth. That involves our family history and temple work. We are responsible for all who now live upon the earth, and that involves our missionary work. And we are going to be responsible for all who will yet live upon the earth.” "
