A prayer

Lord keep us healthy in this household. No more sickness, no more fevers, no more colds, no more blisters, no more rashes…

Lord I pray that you keep our bodies safe, keep our minds in tip-top shape, help us to always trust in you for all our needs, and to remember that you are the one who heals us. You created us and you know how our bodies and minds work. Lord protect these children of ours. They go to daycare and are exposed to EVERYTHING. Their immune systems are developing – Lord strenghten them, cover them, protect them





“I cannot believe my eyes”

These were the first words out of Big T’s mouth this morning. And I have no clue what he was talking about.

Here are the things that are making me go “I cannot believe my eyes” this morning

1) The magnitude of the earthquake in Chile (will be getting it’s own post).

2) This article. A postitive article about christians (YAY!), and a sort of “call to action” for everyone. Says a lot of the things I am thinking, and a lot of the things I want to say to both christians and non-christians.

3) The numbers on the scale this morning. Not in a good way.

“Goodmorning Mommy”

This particular quote by Big T is neither groundbreaking nor earthshattering. The boy is almost 4. He does know how to say goodmorning. In context. In two languages. This morning though…this morning, he saw me when he woke up, and he said “good morning, mommy” COMPLETELY UNPROVOKED! I mean, he was not his usual grumpy-face-I-hate-mornings self. He was…agreeable.

He did draw the line at giving me a goodmorning kiss though. I know, he gave me an inch and I tried to take a mile.

It totally made my day. Which was a good thing. Not that my day went downhill after that. The day was ok. Good, even. My experiments are working (for the most part) The Boss paid me a few compliments about my work, saying things like “Good work” and “You would be an outstanding candidate (for a particular fellowship)” and “you rock my world”. OK, not so much the last one…

But still. yet. I am not at ease. I am worried today. About several things. Experiments being one of them. The work I am doing is has so much potential…possibly will bring a greater understanding to the field… I am worried about contamination, worried about backing up ALL my data, and just worried in general that people may have a hard time buying it. But I have to be confident in the fact that I have done good work.  I have to stay focused, and keep working, make sure I have all the right controls, make sure I keep backing up data and samples…

Also I am worried about money. Daycare dollars were due today. OUCH! We also need to purchase at least 3 new car seats for the boys. DOUBLE OUCH!!

I have to keep trusting God. He is the one that has provided ALL our needs thus far!
