Hodge Podge

Summer foliage is on it's way...
The trees are blooming and sprouting all kinds of interesting things...

Tina, Eli's caregiver, came up with the clever idea to put velcro on the top of her shoes, and the bottom of Eli's, and she walks around the house with him!
I came around the corner of the hallway the other day, and saw this:
My heart skipped a beat and it took my breath away!  To see Eli standing in our living room was shocking!
Amazing!  and. Wonderful!

There was a "movement" to wear orange yesterday while baby Stellan had heart surgery, and so we joined in.  There is an amazing photo gallery of people around the country (and world) wearing orange for Stellan! 
You can see it here:  Orange for Stellan Photo Gallery

And finally.....as of last Friday, I am now 37.
Really?  How can that be?
But, as my Momma used to say, "better than the alternative!"
I am blessed in so many ways. 
I thank the good Lord for his provisions, his protection, and his priceless gift of salvation!
