 A blessed life

So many reasons...
Really happy that every one here is HEALTHY!

Little boys who are cubbies in AWANA for the first time...growing up! Seeing them in their vests and loving it.

Delighting in a morning with friends! The first Mom2Mom meeting for me this season. Learning so much from these lovely ladies.
This give away, which I love and hope to win!
Kisses from Dave. A quick lunch date of fresh sweet corn and grilled steak (really seriously wow) while the kids napped.
Cleaning, organizing, and lots of busyness.
Sunshine in abundance!
Excited about helping out with the silent auction fundraiser for the crisis pregnancy center where I work once a week.
Getting in touch with my creative and crafty side again and being nearly giddy over it.
Learning more about life. Learning how to laugh more. Learning more about my deep need to be in the Word daily.
Delighting in my K. Remembering when every ounce of nutrition was prayed for and agonized over. Loving that he is our biggest eater right now. Haven't used the G-tube in a couple of weeks. Watching the new skills of walking longer distances unassisted and standing for much longer periods of time. Rejoicing.
Praying for the right words as I plan on speaking at our hospitals infant memorial walk.
Kissing chubby feet.
Thanking God for breakthroughs in obedience. Seeing some positive outcomes from intentional parenting. Small, but light at the end of the tunnel evidence nonetheless.
Feeling more of a sense of contentment and completeness than I have felt in a long time.
I am blessed!

You truly are blessed, my friend. Oh, can I just tell you that K makes me smile every single time I see him? His sweet smile is so infectious.

And...corn and steak for lunch? Wow. Yum. My family is lucky if they get bean and cheese tostadas. :)

Blessings to you.

I don't remember how I found you. Perhaps through CFhusband? I have CF, myself, and am familiar with the g-tube stories. I know that is so hard for mom's and I'm thrilled that K is eating so well and not needing the g-tube these days. The boys look so HAPPY in the picture! I can tell how much you are enjoying them each day.
