Speaking of friendships, I've had to rekindle an old one...and it's a beautiful thing.
Tums have made their way back into my life. The heartburn has started kicking in. But I must say, I LOVE Tums. I love them almost as much as I loved my Flinstone Vitamins when I was a kid. It was like candy, only it was good for me. I used to beg my mom to let me eat one of each color, instead of just one a day. And if I remember correctly, there were a few days I snuck back into the kitchen for an extra. Maybe that's why I grew to be so tall? Just kiddin'. My dad is 6'5, so that's where the height comes into play. So anyway, I'm back to snacking on Tums, and just like my vitamins as a kid, I still try and remember which color/flavor I ate last time and go for a different one each time. The Maalox tablets aren't too shabby either.
I never knew what heartburn felt like until I got pregnant. I used to hear my dad and grandad talk about it and never understood. But now I do. It's fierce. And ironically, it doesn't really burn in your heart region as much as it does in the back of your throat and esophagus. Sorry, sometimes I get carried away with details. And because I'm slightly obsessed with words and their meanings, it bothers me a bit that the word heartburn is a bit misleading.
Wow, sometimes the nerd in me slips out.
It's rare, but occasionally it does happen.
Tomorrow night M to the Izz-A is going to speak at my sister and her husband's (Sal Gal and Chad) church about the missions trip he took to Brazil. As he was preparing tonight, I realized that I never posted the pics from his trip. I plan on posting them soon. Please say a little prayer that God would use him and speak through him according to His perfect will.
