207. just enough other people to fell alone on this stretch of sand, but not creepy alone

209. the wave from bubba - a small perfect gift from our case worker gave me

211. the silly videos that played after each gutter ball

212. the fact that bee loved the videos more than trying to hit pins down

214. my sweet sensitive bee --- putting his head to my chest and saying he could hear my heart crying

215 a new family tradition

216. how the moon is out even in midmorning

217. the moon that reflects the sun... may i be a moon who reflects the light of the SON (inspired by this book)

218. watching a class of paddleboarders... idea for the future

219. a reminder there is a future and happier days to come

220. rocking chair on our front porch

  1. Wonderful list, full of God's grace. Joy will come in the morning. Isn't it wonderful that even in times of grief, He gives us glimpses of hope?
