Faith, Hope and Pink Pixie Dust

Our Family has suffered an unfortunate week.
Actually, it was just plan crappy.
-Monday our Sweetbreads had a minor car accident (not to worry... she's still pretty.)
-This morning, our Lil GG had surgery after suffering fractures in her back. (can you even imagine her teeny tiny body on a surgical table??)
-I have been dealing with poor health and have taken 3 shots in 7 days. (Yuck. Dislike. Hate.)
Above all...
Our dear Grandpa Art, had unexpected and not particularly enjoyable open heart surgery at 8:00am Saturday morning.  Shaking our family to the core.  Smiley Happy Coach's family... DOES NOT like their Smiley Happy King.. to  be UN-Smiley and Happy. 
This morning, Coco just happened to be next to me as a random advertisement popped up on the side of my email site... she pointed and said "Ohhh.. see... dat's Grandpa's broken heart..."
 
Ummmm.... that is enough of that!!
So I figured, this family could use a smile.
We need pink puffy dresses, sparkle bracelets.
Beautiful shiny young healthy happy faces.
And lots of extra Faith, Hope and Pixie Dust.

And when the night is cloudy,
there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, Let it be
I wake up to the sound of music,
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom,
Let it be....
 
Grandpa Art-
So glad you are home.
So glad you are well.
I pray, that freshly tuned heart... has just bought us an extra 30 years of Grandpa. Smiley Happy People are better with their King.

PS- I'm glad this week is almost over...

Glad the family is on the mend! Doc must be exhausted holding all of you together!
Grandpa Art, glad you are back on the farm where you belong. Please don't turn your back on the Dairy Queen. Would hate for them to close down.
Speedy Recoveries to all!

There is one singular person getting me through this week. Is it General? No. The girls? Not really. Supportive friends and loving family? Sorry, that's a negative.

It is Madonna, and we are hers in five days.

HOLLA BACK GIRL.
