We are continually reminded of Gods promise of enough as we receive little reminders of his care through those around us. Thank you to the friend who brought over a stack of plates knowing that sometimes you just need to break something. Thank you to the thoughtful family for a package of incredibly soft stuffed animals that unexpectedly arrived on a perfect day distracting the older kids. Thank you to a special friend who gets it for the presence and prayer.
Last week all of our kids, like most of the rest of the world, got upper respiratory infections. With the additional mucus Bailey ended up aspirating and was running a high fever. As a result of the fever she had prolonged seizures for a few days. We are happy to report that after a few rough days she is doing better. She is on an antibiotic and we are doing breathing treatments twice a day with a nebulizer.

On December 9th, 2004 our dear friends Ben and Jaren Nash lost their precious first born son, Jack Benjamin Nash. Two days after this indescribably painful loss we sat with them in their living room listening to them share their story. They told us they could choose to become bitter or better, and they said they choose better. We have watched them live this out. Thank you for being so real and authentic, and demonstrating that in the most difficult of circumstances we can become better. We love you, we cry for you, and we remember.
