Morning by Morning (3/22/17)

My daily gratitude for:

  1. Blessing bone marrow cells for bone marrow transplants.  The opportunity to share a sacred moment with a family is a cherished one for me, one where families acknowledge the tangible hope, possibility, and promise of those cells.  But those moments also carry the deeply baited breath as parents process the opposite side of hope, and that is sacred too.  As an add on, it’s deeply affirming to be trusted by those families to walk that part of the journey with them. Prayers for you E!
  2. A really encouraging and supportive staff meeting today.  There is a comraderie and appreciation for one another developing, and I am grateful to have had a part in it.
  3. Tears.  They are the words of the heart, and are the words we need when we lack the verbal words. 
  4. A good red wine.
  5. The feeling that I am walking into church and knowing that I am loved. I want that for everybody.

My daily gratitude for:

  1. Breakfast foods.  Eggs, bacon, fruit, French toast, cereal, oatmeal, strawberries, chorizo, bagels and cream cheese, hash browns, etc.  I like to eat, and breakfast I do faithfully.
  2. Crawfish boils with neighbors.  We have a really great set of neighbors!
  3. Ryan learning to get his hands dirty and hold a crawfish!
  4. Our dogs. They are a gift and we don’t always treat them as such. But they love Ryan and Aiden, and always are so energetic.
