Tender Mercies

21. We really needed Aunt Melayna's help with X & E, but we couldn't contact her because she had forgotten her cell phone at home today. At work, she had a nagging feeling that we needed her help, so she went home early to get her cell phone and check the messages, thereby saving the day once again. It was so nice to be reminded of how much the Lord loves us and takes care of little details to make this burden bearable. We're so grateful that Melayna was in tune with the Spirit today!

22. Aaron's professor was merciful and emailed Aaron "strongly suggesting" that he not take his test Wednesday. Whew--he was supposed to study all day but only got in about 20 minutes today. What a relief.

Monette, I am lousy at leaving comments, but I just couldn't sign off your blog one more time without letting you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am amazed at your strength, and that of your husband and children, but I also know that at times this must seem completely overwhelming. Dexter is a beautiful little boy with a mission we don't yet understand. Figuring it out day by day is an emotional roller coaster, I'm sure. I am humbled by your attitude, your sense of humor, and your perspective. How lucky we are to know that we are not in charge, and that everything will work out perfectly in the end. In the meantime, I pray for your continued strength and courage during these difficult times. We love your family.
