Sunday is my favorite day of the week. It’s the only day of the week where I don’t feel pressured to do activities away from my family which allows me to reflect on the stuff that matters most in my life.
A good friend invited me to stand in the circle for his daughter’s baby blessing this morning. His daughter, Eve, is only a couple months old and what a cutie she is. I commented how much I enjoyed her tiny white dress and was told it was the same dress her mother was blessed in. I felt honored to be invited to be part of this experience.
After the blessing was over I returned to my seat to listen to the rest of the meeting. I noticed a family sitting in front of me with 4 young, energetic children. I know the father through our church basketball league and have spoken with him a number of times when I took the train into Seattle.
But what I want to say about this family is how impressed I was at the love they show each other. Their oldest daughter is dealing with some medical challenges although that doesn’t quite describe the seriousness of the matter so I’ll link to their family website where you can read more.
We all face challenges in life and how we deal with them is a good indicator of our character. I have a lot to learn in this area. But I found strength and hope reading through their blog. I am amazed at how they are able to maintain such a positive spirit. I find them inspiring.
