1. Paw-Paw's surgery went well, and he is out of the hospital! The hospital is just not a restful place (for instance, they made him get up and walk around in the middle of the night because it had been 8 hours post surgery). Being at home will be much more restful and peaceful for both him and Grammy than being inpatient.
2. Shopping with Grammy- While we were in Dallas, my sister, mom and I went shopping with Grammy. It's kind of a tradition that we go back to school shopping in August as a fun outing. I can remember countless occasions where we would meet Grammy at the outlet mall and browse the many shops. In Dallas, we got to shop and explore the area. I'm thankful for Grammy's willingness to spend time with us.
3. Bible study- This past summer, I have had the joy of attending a local college Bible study. I had never been to this church before, so going regularly to the study was definitely a step out of my comfort zone. However, I am so glad I took that step! We studied the book of First Corinthians throughout the summer. Even though we did not get through the entire book, I felt like every week I walked away with some new glimpse of God and His ways. This Bible study helped me grow more in my faith and gave me more of a desire to know God more intimately.
