Happy Monday morning, friend.
I thought sometime during my days in Seattle I would have time to write a post; it would be all neat and tidy and ready to go this morning. I was wrong.
The days flew by with the long drive Wednesday and a medical appointment. We had another long appointment at Seattle Children’s Thursday, followed by an unexpected appointment Friday.
Despite the medical stuff, I managed to squeeze in lots of time connecting with my people.
Saturday was a wonderful day at our niece’s wedding followed by a visit with my parents. Sunday morning was spent with my sister and her family, then we loaded up and made the six-hour drive home.
It was all good – lots of family, lots of hugs, lots of laughter.
Weddings are good for the soul – so much hope and love wrapped up in two young people who have no idea what God has in store for them. I almost want to wrap them in a cocoon and protect them for a decade or two.
This morning, Claire and I are off to Spokane for yet another appointment. Mercy!
I’m ready to park my car for a few days. Thankfully, we live in beautiful north Idaho where the rolling hills are sprouting bright, green wheat. It will be a glorious drive.
I will be back with deep thoughts on adoption or something important later this week. I truly miss this space – and you – when I don’t have time to write.
What do you have happening this week?
