And, I’ve got to add a lengthy sidetone here: Again, just like I have said many times before, what a blessing it is to be a member of God’s family! We hear sermon and lesson over and over about God’s fatherly love for us, and the divine design of the body of the church, and our relationship with Christ. But the relationship between each other is so important. Sometimes I will give the kids a chore, or a task, or they will be fighting, and I will just tell them that I want them to learn to work as a team to accomplish a task, to depend on each other, and to deal with each other independent of me, so I will stay out of it. I think it is so important for them to look to each other for help, or to help, and to develop relationships without me, so that their love for each other is not only held together by their connection to us. And, I want them to work out their relationship kinks while being responsible for the laundry, not one day when they have to work together to take care of me, get it.

So, after Eli’s treatment tomorrow, unless the sky falls - and he is having a pain in his side that we can’t seem to remedy, so hoping that attention to that does not slow down his treatment - the utilities will be turned on, the water turned on, and the all important internet will be turned on (limited!!! yikes!!), and most of the furniture will be there. We have made all deposits, fees upon fees, application and references, so I believe we are set for tomorrow afternoon, but we will not spend the night there until Friday.
I wanted to share Baylee’s news that she got an all-clear for her two-time relapsed medullo. Wonderful news, as well as Hannah’s scan is kind of inconclusive after being told she had relapsed again. They are going to do some more testing Monday. Praying so hard for these two girls. Eli is doing ok. His appetite is still very little, and this mystery side-pain is a PAIN! I will work on keeping you updated. Thank you for all that you do!
