This is Arthur’s lion. It’s from his grandmother, MommyK. I had wanted a stuffed animal for him, and with his middle name Neale meaning “Champion”, it felt like the perfect animal for him (and me).
This surprise came to my door this week from my teammates on the Davidson Volleyball team. While I haven’t seen many of them in years, this physical gift made it feel like they were huddled around me again. Pictures from back in the day, gift card for toys for Adele, chocolate, gift card for me. It was such a thoughtful gift.
Received this devotional book from a woman at our church we attended when we lived in Elon. It has given me some direction when I open my Bible and want to read something, but don’t know where to go. If you are suffering at all, I highly recommend it.
I am involved in a ministry at our church called “Merea”. In our group, once a month 6 older women and 6 of us younger women meet together. They prepare a small devotional for us and we spend the rest of our time learning a new skill (like making bread, using a sewing machine, and lots of other handy things I didn’t know how to do). These sweet women made this quilt , with Arthur’s name embroidered in the middle and the surrounding tiles verses of encouragement from each of them.
Snapshots of some lovin’ we’ve been getting. Thank you to all who have sent something, letter or gift or meal. It brings more comfort to this weary momma than you know.
