Der mentsh trakht un Got lakht, which means: Man plans and God laughs.
We sometimes think too much of ourselves, we think we have it all mapped out and we can anticipate the future, no problem. So we make plans for this and that. Meantime, God is looking upon us and laughing because he/she has a plan which trumps ours.
Now I'm a great believer in making plans, I love the anticipation, the before is almost as wonderful as the actual happening. But I try to remember that things happen, and I'm not "all that", I try to be flexible, and humble enough to know I can't control everything. I try to keep things together, even if they don't go my way.
I love that expression, Der mentsh trakht un Got lakht, it says so much in just a few words.
The plan was to take Bella out to lunch on this beautiful spring day, meet with a few more friends and sit at a nice restaurant at Rittenhouse Square, overlooking the park. Instead we need to go in to get a CT scan for Nina who is having some severe pain on one side of her face. It started as an ear infection, but didn't seem to heal. After spending hours at the hospital yesterday, they think this may be as a result of some jaw issue. So today it's CT and Oral Surgeon, hopefully getting to the bottom of this and on to recovery. I'm thankful we were able to get in today, they are amazing at CHOP, (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia). We will do lunch some other time. Bella is cooking, and will make lunches for us since it is most likely to be a long day in waiting rooms. She will keep us company and along with a few books, we will be fine.
I was also going to come home and chart, write instructions, answer many of your emails, but I don't think that will happen. Please be patient, I will get back to you this weekend.
I managed to get a little smile from my sweetie-pie. Kisses, my baby!
Talk to you soon!
