Its been tough to journal lately because our city was without power due to an incredible ice storm! Springfield looked like we stepped out the back of the wardrobe! Every tree looked like Waterford crystal and bushes were reminiscent of chandeliers! When the ice got too heavy, the whole tree
tumbled to the frozen ground and sounded like a cabinet of fine crystal plummeting onto a ceramic tile floor. It was amazing! So, in the midst of Narnia, (which included our house serving as a homeless shelter for power-less friends), I got a call on my cell phone from The Dr. Phil Show . To make this long story short, I threw clothes in a suitcase and left early Tuesday morning, to appear on the show Wednesday morning!
I had no idea it was coming. The show was about precious blind/deaf triplets. It was heart breaking and heart warming all at once. Dr. Phil (the one I didn’t marry) was gracious to give me about 8 minutes to encourage the family. I’ve never been a part of something so huge and I've never felt so small. The Dr. Phil show and foundation was so generous to the family and it was clear that the focus of the entire production staff was not only to do great television, but to truly make a difference in peoples lives.
Of course, I brought my own “Dr. Phil” and the McGraws got a kick out of that! I must tell you that they were lovely and gracious, warm and genuine. Robin Mcgraw is thoughtful, poised, and so serious about her role as a wife and mother. She is inspiring. And, that Dr. Phil (like the one I married) is one sharp, intelligent,and quick thinking man! The show will be broadcast on Febuary 27th. Of course, I will be in an airplane on the way to Canada when it airs! Bummer! It’s a good thing I've already seen it, ha!
