Beach Day 1 and 2

Today I am feeling very blessed.  A week at the beach with 3 healthy children, a wonderful husband and my parents is all I could really ask for.  We are having a blast and Lucy is doing so well.  She is such an amazing girl.  Ella has boogie boarded all day long for two days and Jack has had a blast in the sand.

When we arrived at the beach on Monday afternoon, our condo had been double booked.  Long story short we luckily found a new place to stay.  We ended up at our favorite condo in all of Gulf Shores.  It is an awesome place with lots of activities for the kids.  There are arts and crafts every day, movies by the pool at night and 5 swimming pools.  The best part is that 3 of our very best friends are here this week with their families.  We couldn't have asked for a better mishap!











Today Ella stayed with her friend John Owen all day while Mom and I took Jack and Lucy to the outlet mall.  We also hit up the Shark's Mouth (Souvenir City) for the obligatory hermit crabs.  Ella and Mom are getting their nails done this afternoon while Jack naps and Lucy and I watch a movie.  I have waited for days like this for a very, very long time.





 

 

While we have been here I have run into 3 families who have been following this blog and Lucy's story for more than 2 years.  It is so awesome meeting people from Texas, Louisiana and all over who have been praying for Lucy's healing.  It is such an encouragement to remember that prayer can can do mighty, wonderful things.

  7. Although, as Paul said, "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord" and it is better to be away from this crazy world of suffering, I understand that the Lord sometimes allows for whatever the reasons, extra time here. She is evidence that the Lord does answer prayer, and perhaps will draw some to Himself through working a miracle through her.

    I once met another boy who was diagnosed with a cancer and given 6 months to live (diagnosed at 2 years of age) and when I saw him he was tearing up the high desert in Southern California, on a motor bike at 19 years of age.
