Thar she blows! I've gotten a lot of use out of her already. (The hooks now have dish towels hanging from them.) Firstly, it was nice to display my Valentine roses on her. But shortly afterwards our cat Staples tried to eat them.I've got more to post, but this is it for now. We are enjoying being a family, doing Ha family things. It filled me with joy to walk into our livingroom and see this the other day:
What a patient little boy we have! He trusts his Daddy to make him look super cool.
I still struggle sometimes with the hurt and feelings of injustice over what happened, with the idea of where our family could be right now from the effects of the unkind or selfish actions of others. By the grace of God we have a home though, I have health insurance (even if it's not quite as good as the coverage we had before) and we have work. They couldn't have known all the miraculous ways we'd end up surviving, and that hurts sometimes, but really they can't do anything to us anymore. And when I think about it, even the cruel, inappropriate, or insensitive actions of others serve only to enrich our lives if we give it all to God and he gets us through it. He is so good, all the time.
Love you all and let me know what you think!
