Our New Journey

That guy that I like so much and I ran into Target last weekend and walked out with the most interesting array of items...and among them was a cat chaise.

And for the record, I did not pick it out.

He did.

(see? he really does like the cats...)

The only problem is...we bought one chaise for two cats, so there are a lot of jealousy issues happening.

It's not pretty.


Our little house on our little street has been over run by snails...this morning there was one in the kitchen sink.

Ewww. I am assuming that someone brought in a glass from outside and it was in there because the thought of a snail slithering through my house totally gives me the willies.

The weather yesterday was in the 80's...I opened every window in the house and let the fresh air just pour on in.

Brian's PE class took advantage of the weather, too...wouldn't you have loved to play ping pong in gym class?

Life is settling into what will be our new normal around here for awhile...not a normal I necessarily would have a chosen, but a new normal nonetheless.

I'll be honest, this week has been one of the hardest I have ever experienced. Everything is in place for a certain son of mine to succeed...should he choose. The consequences have been great, but nothing that he can't handle along this next path of his journey. He has the most amazing team of people surrounding him and I pray that he will come to see that as a blessing and not as a burden.

That's not necessarily the case right now.

A girlfriend asked how I can believe in God through all of this and I told her that even as a believer I struggle.

My faith seems small.

But my God is big.

He's got me covered.



  1. Pour salt on those snails and they will shrivel up and die fast.
    Praying for you and your son my friend.

  2. Really, ping way. Totally fun and cool. ;)
    My wise ol' dad reminds me (regularly, sigh), "God honors the struggle." Much pain occurs in the midst of the struggle as we know, and as you said so well, our God is BIG. Through the pain goes growth and further glorifies God's grace in our mosaic of life. As always, I remain blown away by YOU and that guy you like so much. Parent on with God at your back steadying your course and holding each of your boys gently in His hands. xo
