*note* he received his orders today and forwarded them to me*it is now definite, in just a few months we'll start roughly 18 months of life apart*one.day.at.a.time*God has a plan and it is good*Jeremiah29.11*
Our week this week has been filled with all sorts of happy things.
Here are a few ...
hot chocolate :)
lots of outside time
hearing Olivia squeal with delight and realizing she's seeing for the first time the wind blowing the leaves through the yard :)
handmade notes and cards and pictures to me from my girls
hearing my girls tell me that they prayed for my running
seeing the girls helping each other
listening to them recite poems they learned in school
starting a fun halloween craft (I'll post more when we're finished)
receiving a surprise package from a fellow blogger
winning this drawing over at this blog :):):):):)
hearing Kate say "sneakers" over and over again and giggling because she thinks it's a funny word
reconnecting with several friends that I've lost contact over the years
the excitement of "pajama day" at preschool
long runs and short runs
meeting a new homeschool mom at dance class
and a letter ... last but not least, a letter to me from the desert
it didn't say much, but it was a letter
something in my hand that had been in his hand ... just the happy thing I needed
I'm seeing again and again how God provides for every need we have.
To my soldier, how about a hardy round of "put on your boots, boots, boots and parachutes, chutes, chutes ..." (you know you're smiling!!)
I love you so much.
"All The Way!"
