The past few months....

....have been absolutely crazy. I have had no inspiration to blog about it here, probably because there was just too much going on, but suffice it to say that I have learned some very valuable lessons about in, my timing is no where close to God's timing. And now that we are on the other side of things, I can say with absolute certainty that God's timing is far more perfect than my own. Of course I knew that even while in the midst of the craziness, but it helps to see things in hindsight sometimes.

Some of the craziness resulted from getting the business started, getting the required money to the right people, flying Ricardo out to New York for training, and just a whole host of other little stressful things. But then in the midst of all this, we got a call on February 27th that Ricardo's dad had suffered a stroke. Ricardo was absolutely devastated, not knowing the extent to which his dad was affected. They ended up flying both his dad and mom here and admitting him to the hospital, where he underwent treatment and therapy for 3 weeks. It was a long 3 weeks for everyone, but they are back in there hometown now. His dad is still in a rehab center, but overall he is much improved.

Jeremy came for a visit last week, and it was absolutely fantastic to see him. Savannah didn't want anything to do with him for the first 10 min., but he won her over by giving her Bob the Tomato, and after playing with her for a bit, she was stuck to his side for the rest of the weekend. When we dropped him off at the airport, she kept asking, "Where Dee-mee is?"
And this morning at breakfast, she showed me Bob the Tomato and informed me that Jeremy had given it to her.

So that's the extremely brief update for the past two months. Now that things have settled down a bit, I think I'll start back to writing more and keeping up with all the memories that are created every day around here.... planting spring flowers together.

Uncle Jeremy's visit

Happy Easter!
