I want to thank everyone for their prayers. Our visit to the doctor was informative and successful, and Michael is definitely responding to his remedy. Unfortunately things usually have to get a little worse before they get better, so his sensory needs are ridiculously annoying right now as his nervous system adjusts, but it’s comforting to know the treatment is working. I hope to start seeing improvement soon.
I read 2 Thessalonians 1 this morning, and it was a reminder to stay the faith, even when things get rough. God wants me to pray for grace and His power so I can live a life worthy of Him and bring glory to His name. I’ve realized if my life is easy, with no hardships, there really aren’t any opportunities for God to show up and do something amazing. If I want Him to be glorified in my life, I’m really praying for some trials, but He’s always going to give me what I need, even if I don’t know what that is, and that makes all the difference.
In other news, the kids all seem to have gotten over their colds and croup, for which I am extremely grateful. Gabriel is saying new words every day and seems pretty excited about it. He’s yelling/talking just as loud as ever, so that’s usually indicative of a good mood. William’s practicing his new commando crawl, and he’s getting pretty good at it. The poor child’s still fussing, I think I see about three teeth coming in right now, but thanks to the wonderful convenience of baby wearing, life goes on.
My camera’s broken (gotta get that fixed before Thanksgiving!) but our amazing friend Elissa took a family picture that I will share. It’s very rare that all of us show up in one picture. In fact, I think the last time we had a picture of all of us that wasn’t a pregnancy shot was when Gabriel was about William’s current age.
Me and all my blessings!
Have a happy Monday and a great week!
