today is a day for sitting, for waiting. for contemplating where our lives our headed. for thanking God just for who He is. for taking a look around our home and remembering back to when we prayed it would be ours. for staring at berkley and realizing that she is so much bigger than she was when we first took her in almost one year ago.. for understanding that her growth also means that i too am one year older. for reminding myself that the promises of God supersede the reality of the trials that we face.
