PRC Day 13

Yesterday one of the ladies who works in the program pulled Hannah aside and told her that she would be really good at leading a support group for teens with chronic pain. She told Hannah that because she is so positive and has such a great attitude she would be a great group leader.

So this started me thinking that I could lead a support group also. Like maybe "Eating Healthy When You are Out of Town." Ummm, well actually, I should be in that support group. Maybe, "Functioning When You are Emotional Wreck." Oh, I need to join that one, too. How about "Criers Annonymous." Oh yeah, bingo!

Help has arrived! It's amazing how fast I can feel exhausted when I know that I don't have to be on duty 24/7! First order of business was to make the bed. Which I'm sure must be much easier for him since he is taller. Otherwise I would have just done it myself. Yeah, riiiiggghht.

The girls are complete opposites in every way. Which is really fun. Except that I have to be a different parent to each child. Which can be challenging when I don't remember who I am. One of their biggest differences is that Sarah Jordan moves in a stealth-like manner. She is quiet and never leaves any evidence of where she has been. She can seem invisible.

Hannah, on the other hand, well, let's see, tornado, tsunami, hurricane . . .   Hannah leaves a trail. There is evidence of every place she has been. We get the biggest kick out of it. It is kind of hard to see with the quilt pattern, but all of the stuff on the bed was placed there by Hannah. One thing at a time. In a matter of oh, 20 minutes.

Please pray for her college roommates. And her husband. And that he has a good job. And can hire a housekeeper. Full time.*

We are feeling the love! So grateful for your expressions of love. Thank you for caring!

*Hannah reads every post before it is published. I wouldn't publish anything she wasn't comfortable with. Hannah is an amazing and funny gal and her shortcomings pale in comparison to her strengths. We all laugh together. So what I'm saying is, no Hannahs were harmed in this post.


  1. Dear Hannah, and all other Montgomery's,
    I'm glad that you all are united together now. You have all been in our prayers. I know that this has been a difficult time, something like an investment in your future - hard to do at the time, but worth it all in the end. I came across this verse recently, and I hope it ministers to you as you look to the future, as you consider our God as a God of hope. Rom. 15:13— "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
    God bless,
    Jim Byrum (following along in the warmth of Arkansas!)

  2. We love Hannah...trails of evidence and all! And we love that she has been acting editor for your posts from Rochester. We thank you both for keeping us in the loop so we know how to pray day in and day out. Glad everyone is back together for the end of your stay. Enjoy the clean car, completed bed, and efficient luggage arrangements! ;)
