one foot in front of the other.....

and dont forget to breathe.

when i asked asah how on earth we were going to get through the next week and a half on the day that we found out; this is what he told me. so far it's worked. "one foot in front of the other and breathe"....repeat.

we've been trying to keep busy; doing fun things with Jordan and have been so blessed by the kindness of friends. The meals keep coming and it is so wonderful to feel so loved by all the phone calls and emails. we know we arent facing this alone!

this week jordan began doing something that i've been waiting for a long time. he began to tell us he loves us. except it sounds like "i, you, mommy" or "i, you, daddy". and it usually follows when we tell him the same. still, it has been wonderful. and so timely.

this weekend's been some good family time. on friday i began my 5th (part time) job....this one is at the new gym in town North Cypress. I'm doing the Kids Korner on Fridays. it has been a great escape. asah came to work out and Jordan had fun playing (as long as mommy was in there). it has a pool and i cannot wait for the right weather to come along so jordan and i can jump in! Friday night a friend came over (thanks MEGAN) and asah and i went out for coffee and had a great talk. we pretty much let all the emotions from this week pour out and it was good to get things off our chests and just be very open and honest about how we were feeling with one another.

yesterday jordan and i did a little shopping in covington then after his nap we went to a neighbor's crawfish boil. it was just good to get out of the house for a bit. this week will be work and stuff but we're planning on taking Jordan to the Baton Rouge Zoo. On Wednesdays from 3-5 it's only $1 to get in (for all you locals who are reading!). I think he'll love seeing the animals.

So that's how we're going to make it to Thursday....and beyond. Just keep doing what we're doing! I'm looking forward to sitting in worship alongside Asah today (probably a once or twice a year thing since he's usually preaching).

Thanks to all who are reading, praying, and encouraging us. It has helped so much.

Tara...we've been out of town this past week, so I've had no idea that any of this has been going on. I'm praying for you. I'm sorry you're having to deal with so much right now. Keep us updated.
