I got home Monday and needed all day yesterday to get my life back in order. At one point I sent Russ a panicked text and he sent this back, “I’m sorry you are anxious. Stop. Take three deep breaths. Continue.” Ah, he knows me so well.
My most important project today, in addition to homeschooling, etc., is getting Isaiah’s graduation announcements and party invitations in the mail. The party is on May 6th, so we are late getting this done, but it is honestly the best I can do. Fortunately, it is a beautiful day and the little boys are playing happily outside as I work.
I took the photo above just as spring was arriving in north Idaho. The snow had just melted off the ground when Eby came to me with a cup full of buds he had carefully picked off the lilac bushes. I have to admit, it was all I could do not to be very upset. After a long, cold winter, those buds were the promise of flowers! Of course, he didn’t understand that. I took a picture because I figure there is some profound life lesson in it – I just haven’t had time to figure it out.
We continue to be amazed at how well Dimples is doing. Yesterday she came home from school, had a snack, then helped me make dinner. Actually, I helped her! She got out the cookbook, found the recipe for Taco Soup and proceeded to make the soup with only a little help from me. She is more peaceful and gentle these days and I can only give thanks to God who is the great Healer.
Back to addressing envelopes!
