We're Still Here....

Sorry I haven't been to blogland in a while.  I haven't written a post and I haven't been reading everyone else's either.  I need to get my rear-in-gear!  Life has been busy.  Good busy.....

Except for all the lows Matthew has been having.  It's been nuts!  Today was the first time he hasn't been low at lunch in a week!  Instead, a beautiful 102 greeted us on the PDM.  Much better than all the 40s and 50s he's had recently.

The "surprise" is coming up.  Yay!  We've managed to keep it a secret. I can't wait to surprise him!!  I'll post pictures when we get back.

Matthew's d-day anniversay is Saturday.  I'm getting a little emotional about it as it gets closer.....I didn't think that would happen.

I think our life has just changed so much in the past year....but God is good.  He's carried us through.

In our bible study this year, we're studying Isaiah.  One particular verse popped out at me this week.  I think it's perfect since God has carried us through this past year: 

Isaiah 46:4 
Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.

He really did.

Oh!  One last thing. Pam, over at Wicked Sweet, wrote a sweet letter to her daughter last summer.  She inspired me to write a similar letter to Matthew.  It was beautiful.  (I even stole some lines....hoping Pam understands that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!) 

Anyway, I will give it to him on Saturday.  I'll post it here, too.  : )

I can't wait to hear how Matthew likes his surprise!
I have been MIA in blog land too...not enough hours in the day!
Good luck on March 5! That was an emotional day for me too. But it felt really good to put it behind me. Hope it's the same way for you!
