The blessings of friends

Thank you to my sweet friends....

One who talked me through my nervous breakdown today when I just about couldn't take it anymore and graciously lent me an awesome space heater that is currently heating my whole upstairs since our heater exploded this morning and is now out of commission.

One who is coming over tomorrow to take care of Miss Mercy tomorrow so that Mercy wont have to stay in her crate all day while I am gone to a school field trip with Mackenzie. I am also thankful for her hubby, Jerimy, who is our chiropractor and is helping us take care of our sick little one.

One who, on a moment's notice, is watching my two youngest kiddos for the field trip despite the fact that it's her bday tomorrow, she has a cold, she has an art class at her home in the morning and her in-laws are in town for a visit. Oh and did I mention the fact that she is going into this knowing that Vivian will probably be a bear since she is so tired? And she is feeding them lunch so that I don't have to pack their lunches?

And last, but certainly not least, my hubalicious who is the most amazing friend ever. He has slept on the couch for the last two weeks so that I can sleep with Vivian and listen to her breath all night. He has listened to me cry with worry over my baby. And above all else, he has continued to encourage me to trust God with all that is going on in our lives. No matter how hard it gets, I can always count on Tim to be right beside me through it all.

I am so glad you have such good friends close by! You are all in our prayers for quick answers from the study. We are still planning a trip up your way after Christmas, so I'll talk to you about that soon.
Love you!!
