The best news this year ...

We have had a lot going on in our lives these past 2 months. Many changes, many blessings from God. As I sit and think about the wonderful things that have transpired in the last 60 or so days, I have to thank God for His hand in them. You might think that the following things would head the list of the best news this year:
1. I got a great promotion!
2. We get to move closer to family!
3. We sold our house in 5 days!
4. We found a new house that we LOVE!
But NO! The BEST NEWS THIS YEAR was delivered to me today in 3 little (but significant) words: "He's all clear!"
Today, we had William's cardiac follow-up ... when he was born, William had a small hole in his heart. The kind that quite often closes on its own. But when we went to the Dr. last June (when he was 9 months old) it was still open. So they said come back in a year. With the impending move, I called this week and got us an appointment for today. One ECHO and one EKG later we got the "He's all clear." And that is the best news this year.
Once again, I am reminded of the GRACE of God and the power of PRAYER.

William a couple of days old ... 4 1/2 pounds or so!

William 16 months old and 26 pounds or so!
