Today I am thankful for an update on my daughter.
It really isn't much, and it isn't precisely encouraging, but it IS an update.
News is news, and for now, I am hanging onto it with both hands.
Pierre, our contact from Benin is out of the hospital, recovering nicely from Malaria. He has hit a few roadblocks with the paperwork - but he remains optimistic. I am choosing to remain optimistic too.
My parents are going to get to visit him in The Netherlands (where his wife is from and where he lives most of the time) on their way to India in a few weeks. For some reason that is encouraging. Just knowing that my parents are going to be in the same place with him, and he has been in the same place as my daughter - it makes her seem closer somehow.
I am also thankful for Homeschool P.E. class. Canaan loves the chance to run and play and interact, and I get a chance to run on the treadmill at the gym while yapping away with the other moms. AND they have a playroom for Zion! What a fabulous combo!
I am thankful for Baked Potatoes and Broccoli, which make a delicious and easy supper when Daddy is once again working the swing shift and won't be home to eat with us. (much better then the popcorn and leftover veggie tray we ate last night!)
And, I am thankful for Tricare. Sometimes they are annoying, and make me run around in circles to get the care I want. But, I have medical coverage when I or my children need it, for very little out of pocket cost. I do not take that for granted.
What are you thankful for today?
