{#919 - #931}

~ a daughter who is so very brave while getting 9 stitches in her injured toe

~ lidocaine!


~holding hands with husband on date night

~the joy I have found in having my kids off school for the summer

~the gift of helping a loved one, drying her tears, calming her thoughts

~the perspective that pain brings

~despite a week that these eyes have seen too many hurting, I know that God is good & able

~the promise in Romans that "He is able to work all things together for good for those who love Him."

~nieces and nephews

~delicious iced green tea and amazing sushi, two highlights of a very hard day

~a brand new baby niece.  The miracle of birth.  The gift of life in a week that brought death.

~how family huddles around when a loved one is lost.  Love shines even in tragedy.


~a debt paid off, finally!

~a husband who ALWAYS has a listening ear.  What would I do without that?

  2. Oh no... sorry to hear your daughter needed stitches. That is no fun! Hold hands with your husband is such a special and sweet gift. Hope. Yes, hope is a wonderful gift!
