Glimpses of Gratitude: Mother's Day

I had a wonderful treat this Mother's Day and got to spend it with my mom.  I cannot remember the last time that we were in the same place for Mother's Day! My brother and his sweet wife decided to treat us both and gifted mom a plane ticket to Panama.  We had a wonderful visit, did some shopping, played lots of family games and even got to take in a fun Panamanian dinner and dance show.  It was such a sweet and unexpected blessing.

Noah's Bum Knee

Well, the boy of the house decided that he wanted to liven things up a bit so this is a current look at how he is spending most of his time. 

Noah's knee has been bothering him off and on for a few months.  However, we kind of chalked it up to growing pains and the fact that he goes NON STOP on any ball field around.  Last week it seemed to get worse than normal and he was in a good amount of pain and unable to get around well so, off to the doc we went.  After a full day of docs and tests, Noah was diagnosed with osteochondritis.The doc put him in a full leg cast for 2 weeks to let the swelling go down and get a better look at what we are dealing with.  The best option is that the bone is fractured but still attached and he will have to have physical therapy. The other option is that the bone is already detached and he will need to have surgery.  Obviously, my prayer is that is not the case.  Ugh.  He is doing ok but pretty miserable in the cast.  It is hard for him to be still. 

On a much happier note, my brother and his wife have gifted my mom with a plane ticket to Panama for Mother's day!  How sweet is that!  She arrives on Saturday and the whole house is so excited!  What a special Mother's Day treat her and for me!

Peeks Into Panama: Beautiful Views

One of the really cool things about living overseas is getting to visit a variety of different cultural locations and enjoy the beauty. We live within a short drive to some of the most beautiful beaches ever!  So, when we have a day off or a weekend without things on the calendar, we love to make a day trip to relax and enjoy the beauty.  This is a peek of one of the amazing views we are blessed to enjoy.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Psalm 19:1
