A friend kindly wrote to me today… “Thinking of you this week.”
I had to stop and think about what she could mean… And then I remembered, “Ahhh. Saturday is the day.”
Yes, Saturday will mark three years since Anne’s accident. April 13th becomes easier with each passing year. The pain of losing Anne becomes more dull, and the joy of gaining Anne becomes more evident. God is good!
I’m actually hostessing a baby shower on April 13th. I can’t think of a better way to spend the day than surrounded by friends celebrating a new life. God’s mercies are new every morning!
And while we’re on the subject of milestones, I just published my 100th post on my bible:365 blog. If I taught kindergarten, I would do something fun like… string together 100 paperclips or eat 100 M&M’s (ugh). But I’m not a kindergarten teacher, so I just had a cookie ;)
Happy 100 posts to me! And more importantly… Happy 3 years of enjoying our new Anne!
