1. As a reminder of the perfect, redeeming love of Christ. This is played out daily through your posts and faith, and also when I picture your sweet boy - whole and healthy in heaven.
2. As a reminder to hug your littles, your bigs, your parents, your neighbors and your friends. Life is fragile and fleeting, and I don't want to miss an opportunity to let someone know that I love them.
3. As a reminder of how thankful I am for the dedicated care of doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, physical and occupational therapists, etc. that we have right here in our backyard. What a blessing it is to have access to these resources.
4. As a reminder that the trivial things in life I worry over (back to school forms, packing lunches, James waking up three times in the night, dog hair on the floor . . . ) are just that - so trivial. Pouring deeply into those around us is what matters.
