365 challenge - week 12

Good Morning!  Happy Monday to you! 

Here we are - the last week of March!  YIKES.  Time is flying like the speed of light.
How has your first quarter of the year gone?  I will close out my quarter with a Colony House concert! (Eric, Hannah, and I)  It's going to be great, I just know it, and I can't wait! 

A few surprises for us so far...
We still don't know what exactly ails Hannah.  We really thought we would know by now! Several times we thought we solved the mystery, but instead it just seems that have discovered another puzzle piece. How it all fits together - we still have no idea. But we do have an appointment next month (the soonest we could get) with a gastroenterologist through Seattle Children's Hospital.  
It also looks like a couple of my children need vision therapy - mostly for eye tracking and weak muscles which make the eye turn outward with strain and stress. Sorry, Kids, you got that from me.  BUT, we learned that Ellie's vision has improved, and the vision therapy she did a while back has proved successful. YAY.  She won't be needing more. 
I learned a dear friend has cancer.  That has been quite sobering.  My thoughts have gone to her so often.  I find myself awake at night praying for her. I remind myself that while all these things may take me by surprise, they do not take God by surprise.  In fact, He has orchestrated all the details of our lives from before time began. While I may not know the "why" of it all.  He does!  That is a comfort!

. . . . . 

Here are the photos I took last week for the 365 challenge. 

[ 73/365 - how I relax ]*... I love to take photographs.  It really is fun and relaxing.  
bonus because I couldn't decide... 

[ 76/365 - a habit ]*... a Trader Joe's habit.  My kids always look for Freddie the Frog! Do yours? 

[ 78/365 - tiny ]... tiny buds mean spring must be soon.

[79/365 - floral ]... another sign of spring - this beautiful ground cover.

[80/365 - details ]... daffodils are definitely a sign of spring.

[ 81/365 - life ]... tummies, and teeth, and eyes - oh my! (aka LOTS of doctors appointments)

[82/365 - variety ]... "I must have flowers, always, and always."  - Claude Monet

[ 83/365 - what motivates me ]... a really good cup of joe!

[ 84/365 - happiness ]... hers...and mine for hers.

Hope you are off to a good start to your week.
