Tired Ramblings

"Our present troubles are quite small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever!"
(2 Corinthians 4:17)

I don't know what to write tonight. I am tired. I am drained. I feel like there is so much going on lately that is out of my control. So if this post goes in 100 different directions I am sorry! LOL!

I want to thank each and every one of you who generously gave to the beautiful family I wrote about here last night. Even though my house is still standing and life for me when on as usual I have not had my friend and her family out if my mind all day. I know the feeling of loss all to well and the thought of this family feeling similar is really hard.

Makenzie and I took a walk this morning after therapy. I walked around the block and then over to their house. I had tried to call Mbut there was no answer and was hoping I might find her there. No such luck. So I stood in the street staring at the house. I cried.

After our walk Makenzie and I sat down and worked on her letters and numbers. We spelled her name with magnets, touched the letter "Aa" on her tactile letters, identified the numbers 1,2,and,3 with shaving cream. Played with a color puzzle, got out her sound cards and used eye gaze to identify things that start with the letter "Aa", wrote her name hand over hand on the white board, and read a book. We had a really good time.

I have submitted Makenzie's IEP to a homeschooling program. I have not heard from the special ed teacher yet. I have also not heard from the principle of the elementary school either. I left a message for him on Friday, I went to the school on Monday to get her IEP, and saw him today while dropping my son off at school but yet not a word. I am guessing they are all doing the jig. That was not really what I was going for but whatever. I need to feel like my daughter is safe and learning. Most importantly I need to feel like there is communication and follow through. I did not feel that way and so she is not going right now. Maybe that will change. Maybe it won't.

Please continue to pray for my friend and her family. I was able to talk to her tonight and things are ok. She went to Target this afternoon to get simple items like socks and underwear. They need everything! After realizing how much stuff was needed she left very overwhelmed. I can't even imagine.

I am going to post the donation link again tonight. For another 24 hours I will donate all gifts to this family who needs so much right now. Again thank you to those of you who have showed so much generosity.

Believe...Prayer Works
