Where does the time go?

To say that I'm a blog slacker is a huge understatement!! I really hope to do a better job at this thing...

Father's day has come and gone, yet I cannot pass up the opportunity to say what a wonderful dad Jeff is to our kids. He has the biggest heart I've ever seen. His love is so obvious, and he is so great with them! I love watching how can go from wrestling with Bryan or head-banging with him to dancing "like a prince" with Ellie all dressed up in her princess costumes. Yet he does it every day. and he does it well.

Jeff, you are my hero. I love how you father our kids. I love that our Heavenly Father is your role model of the dad you want to be. I love how you lead us spiritually every day. You rock in every way! I love you!!

On a different note, yesterday was "Healing Day" in our home. 4 years ago, God healed Bryan from a year long struggle with horrible stomach issues that led to 6 surgeries in 11 months. I cannot begin to say how grateful I am to look at him, healthy and strong and full of life. Thank you God for healing our son, for giving his energy back, his smile back. Thank you for the joy of being able to watch him grow into the young man he now is.

Bryan, it is a joy to watch you live. I don't take a single day for granted with you, and I pray you don't either! YOU are a blessing, inside and out, and words could never express how grateful I am that you are healthy again.

Finally, it's just 4 weeks (from today) until we leave for Ethiopia! Oh, I'm getting so excited!!! More to come on that!
