Love in the Mail

I could say, time and again, that this year has been so hard for us.  We've found rock bottom, only to catch our breath and see that it's really a little further down.  There have been joys and triumphs, but we are tired.  This has been proven in Mike's diagnosis with shingles this week.  Please pray for our whole family in the coming weeks.  We need it.

Bottle Caps!

Some brightness to our cloudy days--the sun was out today and we healthy ones went to visit neighbors.  Arriving home, the mail came and there was a box of treasures for the children from Ginger and Larry.  Books for Roan and Laurel Mae and a collection of bottle caps for Willow.  There were other goodies, too, and it was so nice to have a surprise and feel loved from far away.

Roan and the Reindeer

We are taking the last of December day by day,  things have been so uncertain.  Other years that felt so hard, they have now become pale in comparison to this one.  We are in better places with each passing day, with each test.  All things must pass.

Shingles, oh no. :( I am so sorry he's been hit with that. It isn't an easy or quick illness, that's for sure...

We've hit rock bottom several times this past year only to find out it does indeed keep going down...

I'm so happy the box was a bright spot for y'all in an otherwise grim week. I'm gonna say the opposite. The only way forward now is UP! 2015 will be a better year! I am praying for y'all, all five of you. Merry Christmas!

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
