Thoughts on Justin, Selling our House and a Supermarket Encounter

Justin continues to battle foot pain and fatigue, but his little white blood cells are still normal and he’s doing remarkably well in school.

For this, we are incredibly grateful.

We have put our house up for sale for various reasons. Keeping it clean and picked up for showings with three boys and an idiotic, seventy-five pound golden retriever is not for the faint of heart, let me tell you. 

Just when I start to think people are generally full of judgement, unforgiving and unable to see outside of their own head, God shows me something a little bit beautiful. I say a little bit even though it was actually a very beautiful thing, because of the background setting. It happened in a supermarket and I hate these places, however necessary they are to my life. It’s always over-crowded, too bright, very cold and smells really weird in this one spot right by the lettuce. 


This super cute, little, old guy wearing a hat that read “I am a World War II Veteran” rolled up into line behind me. I sent him what was, in my opinion, an adorable smile but the guy behind him did one better. Shook his hand and thanked him.

The guy behind him took one minute out of his life to SEE someone besides himself and his own problems. And he responded. AND he happen to be wearing GREAT shoes. The things you notice. 

I hope you will SEE someone today. They just may need you. Grace be with you, my friends.
