The girls have a favorite game they play with Dustin. I'm not quite sure what the name of it is, but drawbridge or collapsing mountain would be appropriate. :-) Sorry the pictures are so blurry. I think I must have hit something.
Climbing to the top and peeking at Daddy before jumping down.
The daddy sandwich, and if you aren't careful, he might grab you for a hug.
We decided we needed some fresh air, so went to check out the dam for the first time this year.
It was a bit colder than anticipated. Karis was shivering.
Have no fear, she quickly warmed herself up. My heart almost stops when I watch the girls run pell mell down a hill.
They kept me warm with a few snuggles.
I was praising God for the day He gave us. You see.... last Monday I had been feeling sorry for myself because other people were having great family days, and here I was...
Having a reaction to pain meds.
Thinking I was going to die.
Basically giving into every negative thought I had floating around.
God has given me such a great week and a half.
I'm tired, but I'm here, not in pain, and able to mother the girls a little bit.
I can go on little outings and watch them giggle with their daddy.
I feel like taking pictures of our lives.
I'm grateful God is patient with me and let's me have those moments where I can get scared and a little teary.
I received a card today that was so precious. I'm going to change the wording a little because it expresses exactly how I feel at the moment.
I continue to entrust me and my family's future into the loving arms of "The Everlasting God who does not become weary or tired." Isa. 40:28
I'm so glad I have arms like that to trust in. And I'm glad He never wears out like I do. :-)
