The Girl Scout Cookie from Heaven.

I woke up feeling better today and was able to TASTE my first morsel of food in weeks. Luckily for me, it was a Carmel delight GirlScout Cookie that awakened my tastebuds from their long slumber. Praise Jesus for cookies at 8:00 in the morning.

The time in Reno so far has been great and so relaxing and maybe just what the doctor ordered. I went out for coffee last night with my sister in-law while my parents watched Ezra for me and I was able to relax and converse without having to ask my toddler to stop hugging the trashcan or trying to get him to drink the juice he begged me for just moments earlier. This afternoon, Chris' parents are going to take him and I am going to wander. Get lost in the city I know better than any other. Stumble upon a shop or a park and spend some time getting reaquainted with myself. I imagine it will go something like:

"hello, self. how have you been? You are weary, yes? Weary of illness and weary of living life without a step-by-step guide? Please do not worry yourself, self. Step-by-step guides lead to boxes and you're much more of a freedom-to-roam kindof gal. Let tomorrow worry about itself. Trust, faith, leap. Trust, faith, leap. Always a net to catch you or a fall to teach you."

I find my thoughts are jumbled as of late. Polar opposites locked up in the same brain space. The desire to have another child soon is growing less and less, while the ads for the minivans on TV are strangely more and more appealing.

I'm glad I'm not alone in this! and trust, faith, leap seems like a good way to go.

I am happy to hear that you are feeling better! And Carmel Delights are the absolute best. Girl Scout cookies were always my favorite growing up. I looked forward to it every year. Now I try to stay away from them so they don't add thickness to my tush. Enjoy your time and finding your thoughts.

Insightful. Words I needed to hear today.

Glad you're feeling better. Being sick blows. And traveling at the same time? Oy.

But, then again. You're young and cute so I can't feel too sorry for you. If you ever get old and ugly, like me, then you'll have my sympathy.

Hi Em,
It was soo good to see you and spend the little time we could together.
You are an amazing woman Emery. I had such a good time just watching you be a mamma and hang out with you and Ezra. You really are born for this job...to be a mother, to care, to nurture, to love beyond your capacity....to love the hivey goobery eyed, whilst being pukey and achey. God made you for this...to be the love even when you don't feel like you have any of it to give. God's given you and endless supply and source to drink from...He supplies all your needs my sweet friend.
I love you Emery...already missing you. I'm thankful that you are feeling better...be healed (100%)in Jesus name, amen.
hug, kiss, hug, kiss
Love, Harm
