This past week has been one for the books. I NEVER expected spending the entire week at U of M, but it was just how it was meant to be. And I see God’s hand in it, knowing I couldn’t do life at home. It was where I had to be. I will spare you all from rereading what occurred, but if you missed what happened this past week, check out my earlier posts.
On Saturday, our little town had a Pumpkin Parade, and Mazy could ride on the Preschool float for her school! She was SO excited to go, so I kept reassuring her that instead of visiting mommy, she HAD to go to the parade. She LOVED it and from what I’m told, looked bored, but waved the entire time! And she was able to do with her little friends from church, who happen to all look just as blonde as she does!
Can you find Mazy? Still waving…
One of her favorite parts of PumpkinFest is the little train ride around town. She can never get enough of it!
On Monday, Mazy had a class field trip to Post Family Farms, that Dan was able to go to with her! It was the most beautiful week from what I understand and it was the perfect day to go to the pumpkin patch!
This girl LOVES her cats!
While mommy was gone, daddy and Mazy prepared for the upcoming hunting seasons:
So incredibly thankful for our church family and friends:
Mazy kept PLENTY busy while I was gone, but on Friday when I was discharged, Dan picked her up from school early so that she could see me in the hospital. She was THE perfect companion to ride with me in the wheelchair! She sure got a LOT of smiles!
Though I sometimes feel life shouldn’t be this way, Mazy is such an incredible caregiver! I know that all of this is making up who we are as children of God and God has a purpose in even moments like this too:
After a successful duck opener for Dan, Mazy couldn’t WAIT to help Dan clean off the meat! As you can see, no fear for this girl:
A sweet southern friend of mine sent this to me while I was in the hospital. When I opened it, I got all teary-eyed because this shirt is SUCH a representation of where my spiritual heart is at! I feel like THIS describes how I want to live my life I pray that God continues to use that heartbeat of mine, to increase my faith, hope, and love in him!
We are hopeful that this is a MUCH less eventful week and that we can spend it together as full family of 3 in our home. As difficult as this past week has been, we know it was how it was meant to be. I so desire to have a life of health again, but that is not God’s desire at this time. And deep down, I only want His desires to be mine. So we walk by faith, knowing God has our every step in the journey and He will continue to provide.
Again, thank you to those who have blessed our family in so many ways, through this difficult and trying time. We feel the love of God through you all!
