JUST BECAUSE

Just because I like this picture...
and partly because I think everyone is tired of me talking about my hospital life. So I guess I won't go into detail about how I AGAIN spent my day in the emergency room, or how Ben's sodium level was dangerously low. Instead, I'll share with you that this cute daughter of mine is such a joy to my life. I love that she is so happy and carefree most of the minutes in her day. I love that she is a peacemaker and that she can never hug her daddy enough. I love that she has a special way with animals and that she adores them. I love that she can laugh at her mistakes instead of getting annoyed. I love that she gets up HAPPY in the morning. It certainly helps me to be happier. I don't, however, love that her knees are swollen again due to JRA and that she couldn't run track today because they were so painful.

Kayla, I'm so sorry your knees are hurting again. I can literally feel your pain. I hope you feel better soon. as for you Becky and Ben you two need to stay out of the hospital. I was going to ask you if we would see you in church on Sunday but I guess that is a little uncertain. I miss you. It's good to have you home but it's been a long time since we have seen you.
