A time to weep and a time to laugh... Ecclesiastes 3:4a
While I sat in the doctor’s office this afternoon I became lost in thought. Now of course this isn’t uncommon to me yet the direction they swirled shocked even me. With my weight and height taken, the BMI calculated, and my very own blue paper gown on I thought, “Heidi will never experience her fabulous and forty annual check-up.” As the nurse took my blood pressure and all the other necessities prior to the doctor bouncing in, I answered her questions and enjoyed a nice conversation. Yet I was saddened and then thankful.
Heidi has missed so many milestones since her kidnapping. April 3rd will represent the 18th year of Heidi’s disappearance. Vulnerable and alone on the exam table I found myself thinking of the things Heidi has missed. Some made me cry while others made me laugh so hard the nurses probably made a note in my chart to warn the doctor.
I’m thankful for the good report from my doctor, praise God. Heidi and I would have celebrated with a “Sister’s Day Out” tomorrow but for today…I’ll celebrate with all of you! Thank you!
