I'm really thankful Stephanie is forgiving me for completely and totally forgetting Maizy was coming over this morning during Berkeley's 2 week doctor check up. I'm also grateful E-man is recovering from his tummy troubles somewhat ... here's hoping it's better tomorrow! I'm grateful Ross forgave me because I forgot to remind him to take a different route than 35W this morning since it's been reduced to one lane between here and Bethel. The traffic today made his 15 minute commute 50 minutes today - ew!
Perhaps I'm really thankful forgiveness and grace exists in my life! Now I need to NOT forget to extend the same forgiveness and grace to people who 'wrong' me. Hmm ... :)
In other news, I am thankful for a new mom-friend I met at the park today and her firstborn is a son! It was really fun to chat with her and we actually BOTH were in Edgren our freshmen year at Bethel. How crazy is that?! AND I know her brother-in-law very well - he was one of my worship leaders when I worked at Bethel. Sing with me ... "it's a small world after all ..." One interesting thing she shared with me is that she has a couple of friends who have had boys first and they have taken more time to add #2 child to their family ... I thought that was SO interesting because that's definitely how I feel as many of you know. :)
