update on Comfort - Comfort is home and has had her 1st heart appointment at Children's Hospital - Praise the Lord!
Ghana Adopt has a very interesting observation about hospitals in Ghana and the hospital they visited with Comfort. The author, Laurel, of this blog accompanied Comfort's adopted Mom on her trip to Ghana to pick up Comfort, Brian, and Josephine.
Lastly 6 Year Med and her entry about encounter in an elevator will make you smile.

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower
The Giant Man Child is off to the airport to greet returning troops on this Memorial Day. Not all of us have that opportunity but several blogs such as We are that Family and Ali Edwards have some suggestions to send greetings to the troops.
It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you. ~Dick Cheney

I had never been Padilla Bay before. We arrived there when the tide was out so we played a scavenger hunt on the mud flats. It was the kind of mud that would suck your shoe right off. They found a lot of crabs, sea snails, and worms. We even saw a heron. Later we when to the Interpretive center and look under microscopes and did other cool exploration activities. All in all not a bad way to spend a school day.

They also had a crazy sock exchange. There were a certain pair of bright fluorescent pink converse socks that were being fought for. When I left, they were getting ready to have make your own ice cream sundaes and search for goodie bags. Mrs Epi ever the clever one made little draw string bags filled with the goods and attached glow in the dark necklaces. The girls had to go outside and find their bag.

My Aunt P passed on this prayer request so I thought I would put it out there as well. I don't know Dina but I wanted to send my prayers. Her story is below.
Friends and Family,
My friend, Dina , was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She had just wrapped her head around dealing with that when she got the results from her PETscan yesterday - in a nutshell, the cancer has spread to her spine, her liver, and her femur. Her scheduled masectomy has been cancelled and all efforts are now on preventing the further spread of the cancer to her bones and liver.
This morning a group of us prayed over her at church for her complete healing. Two of the women who prayed over her both received word from God that Dina needs thousands of prayers covering her in this battle for her body and her life. I am emploring you to stop what you are doing right now and pray for her. Pray for her healing, her peace of mind, and for her family. We serve a mighty and powerful God, and we are confident He has a plan for her (although we all wish it didn't involve this!). Please, my fellow Christ-followers, pray for this young (38!) woman and her family.
Dina is wife to PJ and mom to Ginger (just turned 1) and Madeleine (4 years). I met Dina at MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers), and she is a fantastic woman. Dina's faith is strong, and she is planning on serving on our leadering team next year. Although her diagnosis is frightening, she is a fighter. We've unofficially decided our battle cry will be ,"Game on!" as we are rallying around her to beat this.
Please join with me and pray for her on her behalf! God has said it will take thousands of prayers to conquer this. This is your chance to be part of a miracle.
In His Service,

I consider this blog my on line family journal so I am not going to gloss over this week. I had a bunch of stuff typed about all the crappy things that happened this week but I deleted it. Just when I am wallowing in what a mess things are and I read this. It makes all that I wrote seem so petty. Send prayers for Comfort.
