This Sweet Spot.

Continuing to count each blessings…counting one by one…
Continuing to tune my heart to sing His praises….
Continuing to let gratitude drive out complaining…
Continuing to let thanksgiving absorb entitlement…
Continuing to let counting the joys to transform my heart….

Oh and what a week…4 days of being in heaven….baby Ellie here….

~son turning 18…
~even though he was sick on his day…he was celebrated…

~watching him become a young man…

~Day trip to see Ellie…so her aunt could have a day of Ellie all to herself….

~Amy and Ellie coming back with us for the weekend…Dad joined later
~Ellie meeting great-grands...

~four generations of love

~seeing how a baby can be a bridge
~innocence of a baby can be suave to old wounds
~hours of holding Ellie
~changing sweet little diapers
~Ellie being welcomed and loved by all she meets
~Ellie being so good being while being dragged around for hours…
~going to ballgames…
~watching God meet a son and teach through sports
~trusting in God’s love for my children
~drinking this sweet spot…having everyone under one roof

Join me @Ann’s and Jen's
