Justin has an ear infection and steroid side effects to contend with this week, which means we are cranky and eating everything in sight. Pizza and lemonade. A real steroid craving regular.
I’ve spent most of the week caring for him, homeschooling and, rather impulsively, planting vegetables and a flower garden. This is very possibly a sign of impending breakdown as this is way out of character for me. I generally don’t care for dirt and earthworms. However, we have made several “cancer friends” on social media and wanted to create something to honor them as well as their families. We chose plants that attract butterflies. To me, these amazing creatures paired with growing vegetables inspire hope. We have enjoyed sharing pictures with our friends all over the world.
Oh and lilac smells wonderful. So far, we have spotted one visiting butterfly.
Today, a sweet friend actually asked about an update as if she looks forward to reading. That was very much appreciated. If there is ever a significant amount of time between updates, it’s usually because I’m hiding in the laundry room with a box of Twinkies. Thank you for your prayers and support.
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. Psalm 33:5b
