Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow.
What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
It’s here. My birthday. 51 years old. What have I accomplished? What have I learned?
Plenty, but I am not going to elaborate on my (perceived) accomplishments or what I have learned. Just want to say thank you, Lord for…my wonderful family.
John is a wonderful father, husband and provider…and my best friend. Andy is a great son that has made tremendous strides in maturing the last two years. He works a lot, goes to school and will even empty the dishwasher and vacuum when asked…and sometimes without EVEN asking. *BIG smile*
Birthday flowers from my boss (a woman). On my desk when I got to work yesterday…
Since it is my birthday, John didn’t want me to cook tonight and I don’t like to go out on Friday. So he put dinner in the crock pot…white chicken chili! YUM!!!
I am thankful for my friends…I have many, but I have a picture of these two…
What are my plans for the day…some exercise, some cleaning and maybe (?) a bit of shopping…maybe not.
Love this song…
Lord, please help me to live for you and to live like today was my last day. Your gifts to me are so abundant that saying thank you, isn’t enough.
Friends, I hope your day is as lovely as I plan on making mine!!
Blessings…and have a great weekend…I plan on having a great one!!!

I read these verses this morning as part of @stephanieweinert chapter a day challenge
It has been months since I have shared in this space. A lot of hard things have happened.
Tomorrow it will be four months since the sudden death of a close family member that was in his mid-fifties.
The grief is palpable. The loss is cavernous.
And life goes on.
And I remember that “he is my help and my shield.” And I will be thankful.
With all the grief and sadness in the world I wasn’t sure how I would handle today. How I would allow myself to grieve this loss? Today when there has so much WRONG in our world. In a post @deidrariggs shared today she reminded us that life goes on. And I realized that today this is my life. And I can grieve this loss. My life goes on... I am thankful for the 4 days we had her. On Friday I will remember each event of her last day and I will remember her dying in my arms.
And I will be both sad and grateful. #infantloss #trisomy18 #stlouischildrenshospital
