Wednesday's Blessings!!

So excited to share the many blessings of the past holiday weeks!!

~Happy Birthday to my Brother!   Yes, I know I've mentioned it before, but I happen to have the best big brother ever.  When I was a little kid, I remember thinking that he was the smartest person ever.  He graduated from high school as valedictorian, and then, I knew, for sure, he was the smartest person ever.  Instead of becoming a lawyer or doctor or those other "smart kid" professions, he chose to go to USC to major in Filmic Writing.  So the smartest person I knew became the bravest person I knew, too.  What better lesson can a 14-year-old girl learn than the importance of following your dreams instead of the dreams that society might have for you?  Happy Birthday, Tim!  I love you, big bro!

~We had a wonderful warm-weather Christmas with my parents, brother, and his wife.   Everyone enjoyed the resort feel of Panama, and we all truly relaxed and spent time together.  It was a blessed time.

~Tony had 12 days off from work.  I can't remember the last time he had that much time off.  And I couldn't have enjoyed it more.  The kids were thrilled to have so much time with Daddy.  Tony was able to separate from work, and it was awesome to reconnect with my husband- with whom I celebrated 12 years of marriage on December 18th.

~Carson has been having some medical issues for several years.  It seemed those issues were going to require more intervention.  Three doctors appointments with two different specialists later, Carson will not be needing surgery.  We are blessed to have access to excellent medical care!

~The kids don't have to return to school until the 16th.  Although I believe that putting them in school was the best plan, I have missed them so much.  It's been wonderful to spend time with them- and they've even been homeschooling!  (Carson requested it!)

~Tony and I were able to watch our favorite preacher/teacher live via Internet during a large conference.  His ministry has been lighting a fire in us, and I was so thankful for the opportunity to watch it with Tony!

~Did I mention yet that Tony had 12 days off?  Ok.  Just wanted to make sure!
