Fever Free Packing Frenzy

I wanted to to sit down tonight and write a post about so many things but the evening has slipped away.

Makenzie is feeling better and has been fever free since Sunday morning. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers!

We are gearing up to start getting our new home ready to move into. All of the bids for initial modifications are in and we are praying that God will provide all of the means to be able to give Makenzie everything she needs to become more independent in her home.

Today I began the packing process which was a bit bitter sweet. It is hard to leave a home that holds so many memories but exciting to know that a new home will finally meet the needs of ALL the members of this family! I am excited! Having a home that works for wheelchairs, walkers, all of the other crazy equipment, and a growing girl,  has been one of my biggest worries when it comes to Makenzie getting older. Feeling the weight of all the worry and stress lift off my shoulders is amazing!

In 2 weeks I will no longer have to worry about how I am going to get Makenzie up and down the stairs. In two weeks there will not be stairs in the way of her moving from room to room. In two weeks (after everything is put away) I will breath a sigh of relief because an enormous weight that has hung over much of Makenzie's healing and many of my thoughts about the future and final acceptance of what happened 4 years ago will be gone!

God is oh so good!

Believe... Prayer Works!

Hi. I am so happy to read that you are going to have a new home (yay!) AND a new home that will make life easier for all you (double yay)! I hope Makenzie is super-excited about the move! I know how much of a pain packing is, good luck. You could always try my method: Dump everything except dishes/vases/breakables into trash bags. !
