who I love so dearly
|Harvest Party 2010|
Jack was at this party. He was a a soybean sized person.
Good Saturday Evening.
I needed to get another post on my blog because seeing that cherubic picture of Jack was doing really gut wrenching things to my insides. (can't believe he. is. not. here. so perfect and chubby he was. so sad tonight about that)
And I was long overdue to blog for my sister's upcoming 34th birthday. I can't believe I can even say 34 in the same sentence as Becky Greenhill Cunniff. Cuz, really, she's still 16. Or heck, she's still 6 and we're doing fire engine in our stuffy bedroom on 241 N. Anderson, Lake Orion, Michigan...her, with her terry cloth undies and only a shirt on. that drove me NUTS about her...go get some clothes on or I'm running away...
Truly, I'm getting choked up tonight. I have the best sister. She's not perfect but I love her just the way she is. She loves me in spite of my many imperfections, blabbering on and easily hurt feelings.
Thank you, Mom and Dad, for bringing the brat home, and for the gift that she is to me and so many. I realized what a treasure she is to me over the years but never has it been more evident than in this past year. My pregnancy, her help, her sympathy pains and gains, the care she has given me and my family in the days following the most tragic event of my life.Her tears, her laughter thru tears is one of the joys I have clung to.
"I need to hear a story that is more sad than mine" I said to her as we sat and made JOY bookmarks last July...
She lifted her shirt, revealing her tummy...laughter thru tears is DEFINITELY my favorite emotion. Thanks Miss Truvy. you were sooo right. I had no real idea.
So glad I have a group of girls that I can call my Steel Magnolias and that Beck is the charter member. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOO BOO!! I just couldn't love anyone more...I appreciate you more than you will EVER know on this earth. Run to Jesus, sweet, weeping sister who makes me laugh constantly.
David and the big boys are over in Illinois visiting his family. Please be in prayer for his mom, who will undergo surgery on her broken wrist/arm on March 13.
Mel is down where it's warmer, with Mom, Dad and Tom.
I'm home with Sybil and Levner. I love them but I realize how much help and how dependent I am on the 3 biggers. They wear me out...non-stop movement and talking.
Taking deep breaths, choosing JOY, cherishing these moments...taking them for the gifts they truly are.Thank You, Lord, for thinking of me, orchestrating the daily details of my life...Help me to be purposeful, full of direction, a light to this very dark world.
