My daily gratitude for:
- A great weekend with a bunch of friends on the beach in Galveston, where we got to laugh a lot together, celebrate Ryan’s birthday, spend lots of time at the pool, spend quality time with Aiden and Ryan, watch Ryan brave waves at the beach, walk hand in hand with Elana along the sand, and enjoy the calming waters with good friends.
- A Sonic soda on the way home that helped with the post trip exhaustion.
- The Ciudad de Angeles orphanage in Cozumel who does the heroic work or caring for children who need support, and doing it well. I appreciate their work and their love of children and their love of God. I appreciate our church friends who went to support them earlier this summer.
- The voices who encourage compassion towards those with mental health issues and challenge our behaviors and disregard for them. This weekend reminded me of this with a couple of experiences I observed.
