The lovely illustration above is a little bit of an indicator of our last few weeks. There have been germs, urgent cares and even hospital visits. It hasn't been fun but mostly this last month has taught me that I need a big dose of thankfulness... Most things we've gone through have been temporary and fixable (and need much lengthier conversations than blogging allows)...but this is not everyone's reality. Some of the people we love dearly don't get to walk away from hospitals and medicines so quickly...and would be thankful for only the small bumps in the road we've encountered. I'm thankful that we have medical care, that we have helpers supporting us, and that even amongst our "challenging" times, we have had so many things to enjoy. Praying this Thanksgiving for humble hearts and perspective that lasts beyond November.
Speaking of thankful, we loved another wonderful Veterans Day. I feel proud my children are growing up with a good understanding of people who sacrifice for them.
Another exciting thing: a Butterbean visit (not even over a holiday or vacation!)
The boys joined in for the Build A Bear fun. Love how these cousins love each other.
