It was a day of tangled thoughts and emotions; even my stomach felt tangled up. Finally, late in the afternoon yesterday, I felt myself calm as God began to answer some of our prayers. So many things were weighing on our hearts and we were struggling to sort out the details before us. Then one call came, and another, and things began to make sense.
Rather than write it all out in long paragraphs, today I’m just going to give thanks.
#931 – 940 giving thanks
my sweet friend saying, “Don’t apologize; it’s okay,” each time I said through my tears, “I’m sorry I keep crying”
finding out that our medical insurance will likely cover some of the therapy costs in Nebraska
friends who have offered to care for Dimples for a period of time so the other children can rest, and Russ and I can give them our time and attention
wonderful friends of friends who, without even knowing us personally, extended the same offer
kind and loving emails, facebook messages, and texts
a very encouraging phone call from a mom whose daughter is doing therapy at the program in Nebraska – a new friend I’ll get to meet when we’re there
a big chair to curl up in when the night is long and I can’t sleep
knowing that I’ll be breathing salt air and looking out at the Olympic Mountains over Puget Sound soon
lunch with Mimi today
hope in Jesus
Thank you to each and every one of you who lifts our family in prayer. I hope that as we move forward in this journey of healing, I’ll be able to serve you by sharing what we learn. I know that many of you desire with all your hearts to bring healing to your children from “hard places.” Perhaps we can go before you and make make your journey just a little bit easier. And most of all, I want you to know that you are not alone.
