SMP 1.23.13

SMP = Seven Minute Post

Yesterday, Abbey had an appointment to get two very small cavities filled. The dentist told us last week that they were so small she might not even need an anesthetic. She heard those words and was certain she was not going to need a shot, so imagine her surprise when his assistant started talking her through the numbing process. She looked over at me with tears in her eyes, so I advocated for my daughter who is deathly afraid of shots and guess what? She endured the entire process without anything for pain. How tough is that girl? I was pretty proud of her. She is much more brave than her mother.

I'm starting a new bible study at church this morning. I've dropped out of spring bible study the last few years due to the pace of the spring semester and my inability to keep up with the study/schedule and I made a deal with myself last year that I would not commit again this spring. However, I'm SO intrigued by what we're studying this go-round that I decided to give it my best shot and am praying God will honor what little (or lot) I can give it.

In regard to yesterday's post, I've decided to ask my doctor to test Abbey for that specific allergy. Thank you for the comments and email responses.

Seven minutes passes really quickly!

You will LOVE that study. I read the book last year and have been looking for a group to do the study with this spring. Good, life-changing stuff!

Can't wait to hear what you think about the book! I haven't read it, but I've seen a few things about it.

Wow - dentist with no shot! That is BRAVE!

I would do it for 7 too. Haven't read it yet but it seems so good! Kelly

oh and abbey totally rocks my world with that one! I am a total wimp at the dentist! I can give birth with no epidural but take me to the dentist and it's an entirely different story! Kelly
