So full...

of Lieu's Peking that Lauren and I devoured for lunch!
I mean we devoured that food!
We were starving by the time we ate lunch at 3:00!

of love for Gage.
(isn't he adorable!)
I often think to myself (and outloud I guess)...
If I love Gage this much how much will I love my own?
How do you put motherly love into words?
He is such a precious baby!
So happy.
Looking back on his "pre-homecoming" pictures today made my eyes
well up with tears just thinking about all that he has been through in his life.

of amazement at God's love for us.
How he healed Gage.
How he carried Lauren and Chris through.
How he loves us so much.
Sometimes I wonder how can He love me so much?
How do you put His love into words?
Reading the Shack renewed just how personal our God is.
And how he is especially fond of us!
"That if anything matters, everything matters."

of love for Lauren.
Lauren and I have quite the special friendship.
We have been friends for over 10 years now.
I'm certain we will be friends for many more years to come.
Sometimes I wonder why we are so blessed to have each other.
How do you put our friendship into words?
We know each other so well.
I love watching her as a momma.

And so thankful that encouragement comes right when needed...
For example, I am talking to my friend Sarah H. from nursing school tonight.
She and I have used to work night shift together in the STICU.
We don't talk often, but when we do we have so much to say! :)
She asked me about our house...had it sold? etc...
And of course I had to tell her no activity...in weeks...maybe months...
That it is so frustrating...and it seems like it will never happen...
She told me she knew exactly how I felt...and she probably shouldn't have asked me...
She and her husband recently had their house on the market for a year.

And in God's timing it sold!

She said it will sell...God's plan is perfect...there is probably something better out there for us...
I know all that...but forget about all that...because its thrown in my face almost daily.
It was just good to hear...so timely...so true...
Because "if anything matters, everything matters".
Thanks Sarah! I so needed that!

Well, I am trying to upload some pictures I took today. I took them in RAW rather
than L whatever that means...and I can't upload them...Pioneer Woman failed to mention
that. Oh well...

Well, it's been a great day!
Tomorrow is my Monday!
Time for bed!
