I took this photo a couple of weeks ago when we were on our way back from Ohio.
When I glanced in my rear-view mirror and saw this scene, it nearly took my breath away.
It reminded me again of how good God has been to me and my family...
...that sometimes we just need to take a look back and count all of our blessings.
This past Sunday, Jim and I celebrated 40 years together.
I can't really be that old, can I??
Seriously though, it is a little hard for me to wrap my brain around!
We've been through it all...there were times when I didn't think we would make it.
But God is good and He's been right there with us the whole time.
Then on Monday, Dylan gave us all quite a scare.
As a young child he suffered with asthma, severe at times, and made several visits to the hospital.
Before this, the last one was over 7 years ago, when he had to be life-flighted to UNC.
Since that time, he hadn't had one asthmatic episode......that is until this week.
Between the poor air quality (mugginess) and doing a lot of work outside mowing and such,
I guess it took it's toll on him and he had to be taken by EMS to our local hospital.
After spending most of the day there, they transported him to UNC Children's Hospital,
where he spent two night in the PICU.
Here he is after getting the good news that he could finally get something to eat and drink.
Two days of nothing in the tummy due to continuous breathing treatments was tough to handle...
...especially for a growing boy!
I teased him saying that I was pretty sure he was the only patient in the PICU with facial hair :)
He was able to go home on Thursday and we were all grateful for the Lord's healing touch.
So that's the lowdown on the week that was.
I sometimes need to just drop what I'm doing and take a moment...
...a moment to just sit back and reflect on what a good, good Father our God is.
Have a blessed weekend, friends.
