Richard and the new front door finally made peace with each other. (With a little help from his father in law...) It now closes perfectly. We put new evergreen trees out front to help frame it.
Our home projects are such a great distraction for us. They bring us instant gratification and keep us very busy. We need prayers in the coming weeks though. Lilly has been gone for 6 weeks now. We just can't believe we have lived without her for that long. The reality of the permanence of our situation is definitely sinking in. She would have been 5 months old today, that too is hard to believe. Richard's birthday is on Sunday and Mother's day is not far behind that. We need continued prayer for strength and peace and to find our joy in each other and celebrate life the best we can.
Thank you again for the love everyone continues to show us!
