Beautiful, Kerri! I appreciate everything so much more now than I did a decade ago.

How funny! We've actually found something where we are polar opposites :) Maybe it's just because the last few years I worked I was carrying at least two pagers and two cell phones at all times plus listening for overhead pages for myself and whatever doctors I was with. I'd get twitchy if I didn't get an hour or two of silence EVERY DAY. If I'm alone at home there's no TV, no radio, the computer is muted, I don't answer the landline, and only people I WANT to talk to have my cell number!

Oh, girl, we'd be so tired after writing out those signs they wouldn't be legible at the bottom and we'd have to wait and try to wear them the next day! sigh

There is nothing that turns my mood around faster than doing something nice for someone else. It's like pushing an emotional "reset" button when I'm feeling grumpy!

You've caught the huge, emotional, mixed bag of deep feelings I think we all share on Easter. And "The Old Rugged Cross" is one of my favorite hymns. Every time it takes me straight back to childhood and being part of a church community expressing their faith so fully, so sincerely, in song.
Abba Father,  I have a son.  I don’t know how you did it!  I don’t think I could.  I think of Abraham, who so obediently put Isaac on the altar, Father.  I know You knew he wouldn’t have to do it, and I have to believe Abr...

Jacob is one lucky boy to have such wonderful, loving parents. I'm sure he will grow up to be a man who cherishes his family since he'll always remember the trials you went through to bring him into the world!

Don't let anyone bust your chops for homeschooling. Any elementary teacher (in my state at least) will tell you their biggest frustrations are giving so much time to kids who "act out" that the gifted kids don't get anything extra, and that they have to "teach for the tests" - the standardized tests by which the school gets measured - rather than teaching the content the kids want and need to learn. My youngest would have flourished in a homeschooling environment. My eldest, not so much. You know in your heart what's right for your son - keep at it!

Kerri, you always inspire me! I'm STILL having problems accepting how dependent I am. And you're right. I just need to turn it all over to God, and rest in the security of my dependence on him. Read the post I LITERALLY just posted before reading this and you'll see why I needed your perspective so much. So blessed to call you my friend!!
Father, Having Myasthenia Gravis is not fun.  There is NOTHING good about it.  Except maybe for the fact that it has caused me to depend further on You for everything.  You have always been my Hope; but when there was NO h...

Oh, Kerri, this is just perfect. BEFORE I thought I was real, I thought all the busyness, all the details, were important. Now, AFTER, I am real, and the way I think about life and interact with people is completely different. I can't say that if given the choice I'd choose the pain of becoming real, but I do appreciate the results
