Within Me Without Me

busy day

so we took a trip to the grocery store today - mom and babies. aidan actually behaved rather well. i figured if i don't rush, and let him stop and look at and touch stuff, he won't have a meltdown if i try to pull him away from something he's interested in. and he gets to explore and learn on the way. so it was pretty enjoyable.

i've been cooking for the past 2 hours. i made three complete meals for a coworker. this is just terrible. she is my age, with two kids. her husband was just diagnosed about 2 months ago with brain cancer. they found a malignant tumor in his head, and he has been undergoing chemotherapy for the past few weeks. she has been working 1/2 days for a while, trying not to use up all her fmla time, so she can still care for him.

i seriously don't know how she's holding it all together. she says the doctor gives him 6 months to a year to live. i feel like crying every time i think about that.

how blessed we are! i am so thankful for every moment God gives me with my family.

anyway, please pray for lisa and david and their family.

    They say a trip to the grocery store is the number one most educational thing you can do with a child two and under.

    Aren't we blessed? Will pray for your friend.
