This simple ritual of giving thanks is especially important to me right now. It would be very easy to let my mind sink into the lowest, saddest places. I’m choosing to remind myself over and over of the truth, that we serve a loving God who loves Kalkidan more than we ever could imagine — and he loves us too.
giving thanks #1581 – 1600
a short walk and coffee with a friend
my shoulder pain finally diagnosed – a coracoid fracture – and a great doctor
my sister flying back tomorrow – I thought I could do without her…but maybe not
a better week for Little Man
Claire making soft pretzels with special friends
white lights that make our house look happy
kids’ clean bedrooms
grocery shopping done by Annarose
delicious dinners made by friends
spending time with friends and even laughing
Annarose and the boys listening to Adventures in Odyssey together
fuzzy blankets, fuzzy slippers, fuzzy socks
the three year-old who came to visit tonight – so much cuteness
a good novel to read – which gave me a break from thinking (recommendations welcome)
early morning conversation with Russ and Annarose
a good nap
my beautiful, newly painted dining room (thanks to Samuel with help from Annarose and Beza)
Russ reading aloud as he puts Eby and Little Man to bed.
many precious pictures of Kalkidan
your prayers and love for us
