Tonight I have laughed till I cried at a group text between us, the Rasberrys, Nowells and Tews about the Nowells’ first air travel to Denver with a baby, and I laughed until I cried at group texts with funny GIFs, and then I just cried happy tears because Joanna sent us some huge words of kindness tonight along with a picture of the things she ordered, our dumb little things, all neatly stacked on her famous countertop.
No matter how many times we talk I will never stop feeling lucky to learn from her.
I just felt so silly and spent and GOOD tonight. We’re expecting that important news tomorrow or Friday that I mentioned praying about, and even though I’ve been nervous, tonight it feels like no matter what, it’s all okay. God is so good to surround us with a circle of family and friends to laugh and cry with, and I know He’ll carry us no matter what we find out. I’m going to sleep good tonight. I hope you will too, dear reader.
