Anyway, I thought it was about time I joined Laura, one of my favorite bloggers, in being thankful for what is good right now.
–We found a wonderful new home for Chester. While this has certainly added to my ability to cry at the drop of a hat, I am glad he is with people who will be able to pay him a ton of attention, let him sleep in their bed, and have a huge backyard for him to run in.
–I have been busy at work, which keeps me from dwelling too very much on the difficult things.
–Libbie is becoming very fun. She rolls over, giggles, and can pretty much hold her head up. Yay!
–My sister is coming in about two weeks to spend time with me and Libbie. I can’t wait to visit, hear about her new job, and see her with her niece. She loves Libbie sooooo incredibly much. I hope they will always have a very special relationship.
–My parents are leaving on a cruise this Thursday. While I am jealous, I am so happy that they still love each other immensely after nearly 31 years. They truly enjoy each other’s company. I hope Mr. V and I will still be so happy after many years together.
If maybe you’re going through a hard time like I am, I will leave you with this quote I read yesterday in My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers:
We all have any number of visions and ideals when we are young, but sooner or later we find that we have no power to make them real. We cannot do the things we long to do, and we are apt to settle down to the visions and ideals as dead, and God has to come and say—”Arise from the dead.” When the inspiration of God does come, it comes with such miraculous power that we are able to arise from the dead and do the impossible thing. … God does not give us overcoming life; he gives us life as we overcome.
