The sun is shining. It has been awhile, but it has appeared. The trees look rather surprised in the morning light, dazed. We have been in mist.
Today is a Zach day, so I am soon away, and then, I am going over to the East Bay to meet with Jane tonight. I probably won't have time to check in. I understand that Zach and his family are having a tough time, so prayerful thoughts sent their way would be lovely. It is not easy to have a bone marrow transplant. It is even more difficult when you have a two and half year old to reassure. Zach and I will return to the Discovery Museum today if that is what he wants to do. I want to play with the trains. :)
I'm sure he does too. When we left the museum last week, he was singing in the car, "I am happy." He is a sweetheart and this is a tough time for him and his family. Zach prayers! They can be small ones as he is small, though huge in two year old stature and strength.
This is what I carry with me today.
It is not happiness that makes gratefulness,
but gratefulness that makes happiness.
