Project 365 {week 16}

I am aware that Michigan weather is weirdsies, and that April showers are supposedly bringing May flowers, but COME ON.

This week we had temperatures ranging from almost 70 degrees to below 30 degrees.

We had so much rain schools closed because cities were in official states of emergencies.

Thursday I taught for 30 minutes before we lost electricity and went home an hour after that.

And then there were all those other horrible things that happened in ‘Mercia this week.

We tried to still find the good.

April 20: My best friend in the entire universe is having a baby boy. There was a baby shower.  And I might have happy-cried a little after so she wouldn't see me.

With all the bad in the news this week, Sluiter Nation celebrated lots this week.

Cort was honored.

Our nephews had their second birthday party.

And my best friend will soon be a boy mom just like me.

When we remember this week, I want to make sure we acknowledge the tragedies, but really remember the joys.

  1. Glad you and your family had some joys this week. xo

  2. Glad you had a joyful week. Will pray for your son.

  3. Yes. The joy should have a spotlight. We cannot let those intent on darkness breaking our spotlights. Also, Bird’s smile makes me smile.
