Saturday, May 9th was Ellie's 27th birthday! Unfortunately I missed most of it, having to spend the day in bed and behind closed doors. I felt really bad because we had promised to babysit for her and Andy that night so they could go out and celebrate. Well, they did come up with a Plan B and were able to celebrate, and that was a good thing.
I really don't know too much of all that happened that day, except that Ellie and I had decided we were going to let the guys do "everything" on Sunday and we were going to gratefully enjoy our Mother's Day. She did make a couple really good pies from scratch called "Lilikoi Chiffon Pie" from a recipe her parents brought back from Hawaii. Then she did some grocery shopping to give the guys a little jump start for Sunday. Other than that, I'm mostly clueless since I was stuck upstairs and away from all the fun.
On Saturday evening I sent a rather desperate email out to our small group of Christian friends and asked them to pray for me so I could get over being sick. Believe it or not, in just a couple hours I came downstairs and was hungry for some cottage cheese and dry toast, not having eaten in over 24 hours. After that, I was able to sleep the entire night. And I really was better for the big day. Thank you friends, and thank you, Lord!
Tomorrow: a GRAND Mother's Day from beginning to end!
