"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

ugh.....Rachel has a cold now.  No surprise.  Every chance she gets, Abigail is hugging and coo-ing over her baby sister...and coughing in her face.  She really loves her sister - it is sweet to see.  Our older two are fine now - they had croupy coughs and lots of snot - but Rachel has enough to deal with without having a cold yet too.  It is hard - she's throwing up alot of her food.  I know they say it usually looks like more than it really is.  But this is yucky.  Sometimes I wonder if it's hard now, what will it be like when her body starts to fail her.

One day at a time..

We have received a huge outpouring of support by email, calls, and cards!! Thank-you so much for caring for us so well.  I want you to know that I am reading everything and they are an incredible means of encouragement for us.  I have been trying until now to respond to most, if not all your emails.  But I am finding that my family is getting alot less of me than they should.  So, please don't be discouraged if you do not hear from me - I would love to respond but it may not happen for awhile. Thank-you so much for understanding!

Take care of yourself and your family and don't worry about responding to messages, they're just that messages. I remember how busy I was with 3 younguns like you have now and I didn't have a special needs baby. Love and prayers Roselle

kendra, i am more than happy with 'general thanks' on your blog :) i know how hard it is to 'ignore' gifts (that is not what our mother's taught us heh?) . . . but you are living an exceptional life right now. i bless you in being present to your family and ignoring the rest of us :D
and we will pray for healing from this cold that rachel has! we pray daily that she will not suffer. may God daily show you His goodness!!!
