The past few days have been filled with typical ups and downs. One moment Justin is a little boy, the next he is a cancer patient.
Wisdom has come to me. Kids respond better to routine and expectations. Duh. I am a certified teacher. I know this. Sometimes clear answers get blurry under extreme duress.
The current plan is for Justin to attend school Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with plenty of time to rest in between. A very special thank you to his teacher for accommodating an unusual situation.
Last night, I took two dates to the new Lego movie. Two hours of brain cell melting I can never get back. But Justin and Michael enjoyed it.
Nicky and his friend built a puppet theatre out of junk in our garage for a school project. Including this because I’m genuinely impressed.
Thank you for the MANY encouraging comments after our most recent code blue meltdown. Every word is received and put to work in sustaining this tired mama.
But there is nothing that has saved me more than this:
For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For who is God save the Lord? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places. Psalm 18:28-33
