Today I had a hard time getting out of bed.
Today I got out of bed.
Today I stopped at our local coffee shop for a latte on my way into Beaverton.
Today I stood at the counter looking at the cookies Anna loved and I cried.
Today the girl at the counter placed a Love Rock for me on top of the cookie case.
Today I shared Anna and Abigail’s love story and Love Rocks with a 5th grade class at Jacob Wismer Elementary School.
Today I got to tell a classroom of children about how Anna loved riding horses and climbing and how Abigail loved to be on stage.
Today I showed a room full of children how to cut a heart on the fold small enough to fit on a small rock.
Today, at the end of my time at the school, a boy gave me a Love Rock made with my favorite fabric ~ he had overheard me tell another classmate that the fabric she was using was my favorite.
Today I stopped for another latte and ran into a pastor from my church.
Today I spent some time sharing with him about how God holds us in our sorrow.
Today I got home from my outing and opened the most beautiful card from the 5th grade teacher at Jabob Wismer Elementary.
Today I realized that on this day, that girl behind the counter, those children, that teacher, my pastor were all placed in my path as a way for me to see how beautiful His love, His guidance and His glory is.
Today, like every second of every other day, I miss my girls.
Today I got out of bed and I felt Love!
Update~ Last week I wrote about my high school classmate and how he was waiting for a lung transplant. Yesterday he received a beautiful set of lungs. I am continuing to pray for everyone involved.
