He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
- Isaiah 40:29-31

Friends

This is just one of those posts where I thank all of our friends. Since Joshua relapsed, we have had dinners made, offers to watch the kids, visits and much more. We are so blessed to have you all as friends and thankful for everything you have done from pray for to help out our family.

Tonight, Jeff is out with the guys. He is enjoying a little down time without his lovely wife and his darling children. Okay so he's escaping the house of chaos but it sounds better the other way. Anyway, as he was leaving, I tell the boys that Daddy is going to play with his friends for a while.

"You know, like you get to go and play with your friends."

"Daddy is going to play with his friends?"

"Yes."

Then Joshua looks at Jeff and in the sweetest voice ever, he says
"I'm your friend Daddy. I want to go with you."

How cute! And, it's true, a lot of us are here for you guys, and any time you need us, please don't hesitate to call!!! Well, good for daddy going out! I know you probably won't Ami, but remember that it wouldn't hurt you either to take some ME time. You guys should. Don't feel guilty. It's only "normal" too. And, considering you are not that "normal" family, you gotta try it once in a while. I hope Jeff enjoyed himself. Beautiful day today huh? I hope the boys got out to play! Keep the faith and hugs and kisses every day to you guys! One final comment, Tylar and I went out to lunch today to Friendly's in Dover, and I thought of you. A little boy (about a year old) was in there with his parents and he just cried and cried and was such a mean little guy, and I overheard the parents of course, being embarrassed about the scene. Their booth was next to ours and when I looked over at the mom, she was like, "I'm sorry - he's been sick all week, you'd think we could just get a little lunch without all of the drama!" and I could only smile and think of you guys with Joshua being sick, the other two being cranky or tired, and told her "You wouldn't happen to have ever heard the name of Czorapinski have you?" ha!ha!
