I am so lucky. I am so very blessed. I want you all to know that your kind words, hugs, gifts, dinners, offers of help and love are so appreciated. I check this computer thing multiple times each day. Today I apologized to David for always being on the computer. I told him that I check it so often because your kindness and expressions of hope and love give me strength and encouragement. Thank you for your emails and comments on our blog and on Facebook. I really do rely on them and appreciate them. Please keep them coming! It is nice to know I have so many people that care for me and my family.
A few weeks ago I was complaining to David that I really wasn't serving everyone enough. I felt that I was too absorbed in my own world of kids and their school craziness, of my own school responsibilities and then just the day-to-day obligations of being a wife and mother. I felt like I wasn't doing enough to help others. I was saying to David that no one would miss me - except him and the kiddos....I know, I know - so not true. Because of these feelings I was determined that after my school was finished I would spend the summer teaching my kids about service by showing them how to find ways to serve. I didn't realize that I would be spending my summer teaching them about service by giving others the opportunity to serve us. You are all a great example to me and I hope that you know how much we love and appreciate all you are doing for our family.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
