The day is almost here. Blake has been looking forward to tomorrow since he first found out he would be going to Christian Heritage School last summer. Tomorrow at 5:30am we (Dad and Blake and the rest of the 5th grade class at CHS) will be loading on a bus for the ride down to NASA. He is so excited. It makes me excited to see him and how happy he is. I don't look forward to waking up at 5 am but I do look forward to spending the next two days with my son. Trish just came in and informed me that she packed some "outfits" for me. What is she thinking. All the hard work she did at our house this weekend must have left her a little dehydrated because I am a man and I don't wear "outfits." Tonight when I got home from my seminar in Dallas I went to work ripping out the shower in our master bathroom. I am afraid that things went from bad to worse. I thought we had a minor problem in there but as it turned out the floor and sub floor was completely rotten. I think our move in time back to our house just got pushed back some more. I am still praying that we can find a contractor who would be willing to come in and help us get things back in order. I am not sure just when it happened, but I think my life is completely out of control.
After a long day of hotels, seminars, driving and tearing apart my house I finally got "home" to my parents house and got to see Ash around 9:30pm. She is looking so great to me. I am so proud of who she is and how strong she is. I took a few moments to lay down on my back with her laying on her belly on my chest. I just listened to her grunt and coo and was able to reflect on the incredible drive and determination to live that God has placed in that little soul. I can't begin to imagine how He plans to use her as she grows older. Thank you to each and every one of you who takes your time to check on Ashley and who faithfully prays for her. Please pray for our house and living situation as I think we are getting deeper and deeper at our house and still don't have enough help to get it done anytime soon.
God bless each of you,
