December was a full month, and even though there were emotionally exhausting times, when I look back over the photos on my phone I can see moments of joy too. I like to focus on the joy. Here’s a run down of December.
Chocolate Taffy got his wisdom teeth out. This might have actually been the end of November.
We got to go to a Christmas Orchestra Performance. (yeah we got there early…what can I say?)
Breakfast at Panera.
Marshmallow got her very own name plaque. I took my time getting this, I was just procrastinating to find the perfect scripture.
We had the tummy flu…over Christmas. Sad.
Blue-Raspberry turned 10!! The ice-cream cake that I made melted in our subzero garage, I still can’t figure out how that happened. Thankfully there is a Dairy Queen very close by! Happy birthday son!
I got a new hat for Christmas. Strawberry and I wore our BRIGHTEST hats to the Children’s Museum and EVERYBODY was starting at us. lol
We ended the month with a visit to the Children’s Museum. A happy day that ended with more sadness as our oldest son is going through a really hard time.
The good thing about hard times is that it makes us rely so much more on the Lord. I can’t do this alone. I can’t carry the weight of a rebellious child and a struggling relationship. Thankfully I don’t have too. This is my faith. God is in control. Ultimately it is His fight. He loves my son even more than I do. Focus on the joy.
The battle is the Lord’s,
