At the end of December and the first of January, I started asking someone about the gifts God was giving them each day. It became sort of a game. Sometimes they would ask me but I usually can answer the dreadful “I’m alive” and that is gift enough.
Of course this is a horrible way to live. I’m not sure how to change this but I think I should try. No I’m not going to share each day because I doubt I can handle that but I would like to share today’s gift.
I had to pickup 10 lunches from the boy scout fundraiser that my son was participating in and took them over to Bethany’s house. They usually have a zillion mouths to feed, well only seven but that’s quite a few. So I see Abbee, Eli, and even Patience but no Aubree. I figure she is playing in her room or whatever then I get a text message.
Hi paul this is aubree I’m in my room if you want to come see me I’m trying to keep the baby asleep
I know that it is just a silly text and of course I wanted to see her. And she wanted to see me too. She continues to amaze me and I love her more each day. I snuck into the room and talked a bit while the baby slept on her. What a great gift that was for me.
Tomorrow will bring another gift. Not sure what that gift is yet or if I will even recognize it but we know it will be there.
