"Where's the Snow?"
You guys been watching the weather reports. 2-3 feet of snow in CO and western NE.
Back in the summer we trying to decide on which transplant center we should take Ashley to. Our choices where Miami and Omaha. For a variety of reasons we ultimately chose to list Ashley for organs in Omaha. I think God truly lead us to this decision. The average wait time for organs in Miami was 3 months and in Omaha about 15 months. Ashley did not have 15 months left with her old liver. But despite this small problem OK, this HUGE problem we were led to choose to list her in Omaha. God worked a miracle and the call to come for transplant came just 3 weeks after we came home from Ash's transplant evaluation. Even as I type this today I still am amazed at how fast God provided organs for Ash.
One thing I remember about our time this summer at the transplant evaluation here in Omaha was them telling us that if we were in Omaha this winter we would get to see lots of snow. Now we are here and snow is all over CO and NE and there is not a lick of snow here. It's not even cold. Almost 50 today. I was griping about the lack of snow this morning. I was telling the nurses that I came to Omaha and it is winter and I am ready for some snow. Remember the "WHERE'S THE BEEF" lady? Well I ask "WHERE'S THE SNOW?"
I was telling Ash's nurses and doctors that if we had chosen Miami I could be wearing my flip flops and headed to the beach right now. I know they would have delivered.
I left the hospital to go get some lunch a while ago and since I have been so grumpy at the lack of snow I decided to lift my spirits by singing Christmas songs in the car. Now I know and all of you know I can't sing, but I was getting in the mood. I altered some of the words to fit our situation so here goes.
Pretend you are singing along to (Let is Snow)
Now the weather outside is warm,
They told us it would snow,
But they told us a bunch of fibs,
Where's the Snow? Where's the Snow? Where's the Snow?
OH- We finally came to Omaha,
And its winter time,
So since we came all this way,
Let it snow all day, all day, all day!!
Repeat Chorus 2X
Sing this one to (Santa Clause is coming to town)
You better watch out, you better not pout,
I'm gonna cry and I'm telling you why,
ther'er is no SNOW. :(
They told us to come, they told us it would snow,
so we came to Omaha, and wher'ers the white glow? :(
Oh they better watch out, the better look back,
I might just jump em' and attack,
Oh, where'er is our snow?
OK, now you know, not only can I not sing, but I also can't write or compose music. God gave me some talents I know, but music is most certainly not one of them.
Have a wonderful day,
