This winter has been a doozy. There has been a lot of
wailing and gnashing of teeth praying for peace and creativity on the home front.
The amount of school cancellations has been unprecedented, and I think the winter of 2014 will go down in history as one of the most glorious in the eyes of the boys. The trouble with unexpected days off though, is the fire drill of re-shuffling schedules as well as being cooped up for what feels like ad infinitum. This is when our local library, once again becomes our beacon of hope. I’ve recently gotten into the routine of going to the library once a week. It has turned into one of the greatest highlights of my week. We recently discovered a few wonderful gems in the children’s department. I usually post summer reading videos, but thought I would post a little wintertime book haul, just in case anyone else is in need of a few sanity saving selections too!
I also wanted to share an update on Francois, the little boy I met in Haiti.
He has hydrocephalus and was in urgent need of medical attention. I received the following update last week:
“Just so you know that the surgery has been move to February 21 instead of
May. In the meantime, Francois has to undergo a couple of lab work and eat to
stay in good shape for the surgery. He has
fever every night and cries a lot. Your prayers for him are being well appreciated”
Precious, sweet one! I just want to reach through the photo and hold him again. All he wanted was to have warm arms around him, and his body was completely calm and content shortly after this photo was taken. Please keep Francois in your prayers.
