I am constantly amazed and thankful for all the blessings in our lives. This afternoon, Handyman's brother dropped off bags and bags of groceries and easy lunch meals so that I won't have to wonder what to make for the kids while I'm trying to get Ella's food prepared (there was so much food from them that I had to make a list to keep track of it all!).
Another friend loaned us a comfy high chair because Ella has to spend so much of the day sitting while connected to the feeding tube.
This morning the kids and I went for our first "excursion" with Ella to Aldi, and just when I was starting to run into a bit of trouble with Ella's feeding tube, a couple from church happened to be walking by and were able to lend a hand while I got the situation unkinked.
Friends and family have cared for the kids and helped clean the house (that alone is worthy of an Olympic Medal).
My friend Dawn just told me that she's lined up meals for our family for the next two weeks. Two weeks, people! Two weeks in which I won't have to prep meals, make grocery lists, and deal with the cleanup afterwards.
Two weeks to spend time cuddling my baby and taking care of her.
Blessed, is what we are.
Very, very blessed.
