surrounded by piles of snow and shivering sub-zero temps, we greet a new season.
i'm reminded of a sometimes bitter truth. again. the lord is kind to keep reminding me! seasons can change, but your circumstance may be here to stay. the sun will still rise and set. you can wake with it or try to ignore it, but the days go on. and he is there.
our day began with a progress meeting for elijah's aba therapy. it was the best meeting we've attended so far. elijah was amazing!
we see growth, we see joy, we see god's perfect design.
patrick took me to lunch.
i had a naked burrito, but ordered "a burrito in a bowl with no tortilla" because i just can't say naked burrito. am i weird? or just modest?
we talked about elijah, new music, shoes, friends and how blessed burritos are by cilantro rice.
after a whirlwind afternoon filled with errands, we collapsed for a fifteen minute nap before elijah arrived home from therapy. he was ready to rumble, praise jesus for that brief rest.
my husband was sweet and made a hair appointment for me, smack during mealtime. he fixed dinner for himself and elijah. i enjoyed a head, neck and hand massage and a fresh trim from my sweet hairdresser. she even curled my hair.
refreshed, i took a little drive to enjoy the evening light. i was surprised to feel a smile creep up. the snow was so beautiful and peaceful in the setting sun. the cold felt energizing instead of painful. it's what i chose to see tonight.
grateful for a lovely, ordinary day.
praying that tomorrow i will choose to see beauty again.
