Deep Breath

Today, I received these tags in the mail. No tears. Just took a really deep breath.  A really, really deep breath.  This is our life. Oh, how I do not want this for our daughter or any other child, but this is our reality.

John 9:2-3

New International Version (NIV)
2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”   3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.

Yesterday, Sadie's walker arrived. I held back those tears as she completely adjusted and ran across that room.   I took it into the preschool in hopes they would make it work in that small environment and it did! The kids were so excited to interact with her eye to eye. This afternoon, she is very happy to be "walking" and she is wearing her glasses without immobilizers. God is sooo good!
I know she doesn't look thrilled in this picture (she is watching a movie) and I couldn't get a good video, but I promise she loves it! Our cabinets, couch, and armoire are seriously hurting, but it is so worth it.

In other news, there has been lots of snow here in Nebraska, but no complaints. Ben (and Greg) are loving it.
