three months have passed . . .

since I last posted here.

I guess one could assume that "no news is good news"?! Florian was back this week for another appointment and again... no lumps or bumps. We continue to be thankful.

At the same time, I have realized that it's become pretty easy to slip back into a mundane "every day's just more of the same" attitude... waking each morning expecting that the day will unfold as per "our" plans.

Are we back to the same place that we were before we started this journey? I certainly hope not.

To that end, I would like to ensure that during the next 3 months I praise God for each new day... that I daily count my blessings... that I affirm Florian for who he is and show my appreciation to him for all that he does...

My prayer is that, during these next 3 months, I wouldn't take so many things for granted . . .

Edith- it is wonderful to know that Florian continues in remission!

I'm sure this will bring special meaning to the wonderful holidays this year.

Edith, What good news. I pray that these reports continue. I agree with you that it is much easier to be focused on God and the blessings we receive when times are tough and so much harder to do when the days are going smoothly. This is a challenge I face so often and I try to remember to thank God everyday for the blessing of no serious problems that I need to bring to him. He is so good to us all the time! Whether we recognize it at the moment or not. Isn't that wonderful. Enjoy your days together as a family and with God.

And I'm still here!!! Waiting to celebrate the moments with you........small and big!!! It surely is easy to get back to "normal", in whatever form that normal is for us. And in some ways, yes.....we do need to remember and praise God for every day!! Yet, on the other hand, the very fact that we CAN return to a "normal" life.......truly IS a gift from Him!!!!
