I am taking a minute to reflect on the blessings that I have been given. I am so blessed to have such a beautiful, healthy family. It has struck me even more so in the past couple of days. Recently a friend of a friend's baby was struck with bacterial meningitis. This baby is 10 weeks old, and it has been a terrible time for them. While I don't know them personally, I ache for them, and pray for them as their daughter fights through this infection. I check their blog daily for updates and am eager to hear that she is doing better. As much as I love and trust God, I don't understand why things like this happen, especially to little innocent people. I ask that anyone who reads this pray for this little girl. Every little bit helps.

Thank you for praying for Mark and Heidi - they are very dear friends of mine and it has been heart-wrenching to see them go through this. But incredible to see the number of people who have rallied behind them in prayer. Kaiya had a good day today, and we are all so thankful for that.

Really does put things into perspective, doesn't it? I'm glad you have such a beautiful, healthy family!
