  2. Glad you could have some "normal" for your family this week. Sometimes normal and routine can be so refreshing in the midst of difficult and heavy.

  4. Wishing you would tell us, I am not good with suspense! Besides, that would give us a specific thing to pray for.

  9. I'm glad to hear your still finding joy through the hard times. Though I am not sure at all what is going on in your lives, your family has been close to my heart over the past few days and I have found myself praying for you guys, for an amazing sence of peace to surrond your family during this tough time. I think of you all often wondering how your days are going. It's funny but I think of you all at very random times like when I begin to cook something and I take the ingredients out of glass jars (something I started doing after reading your blog), or making a salad with hummus/chickpeas (again another thing I read about on your blog and started doing). I will continue to pray for you all!
