Langley will now "give five" consistently. It's so cute. She started this on Thursday and I will randomly test her, like when she gets up in the morning or before I change her diaper I say "gimme five" and she does it! Her first trick :-)
She's been a great sleeper and napper and has seemed to just be feeling better. I don't know really what the deal was, because she still doesnt have a tooth, anyway I'm thankful for the break! I think my mental and emotional states are much better, too.
One day this week my devotional gave me these verses:
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commands. Deuteronomy 7:9
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23
Whatever may be making you feel hopeless, big or small issue, personal or with a loved one, God is faithful - no matter what.
On a unrelated note, here's a funny story. I was trying to run a few errands before the Razorback game started today, my last stop was WM to return a couple of things. So, I find a parking spot, load Langley in the stroller, grab my bag and my stuff to return and set off for the building. I get halfway across the parking lot and my stupid flip flop breaks. I started laughing and just turned around to head back to the car. I had to limp the whole way. I caught a few people staring. There were people waiting in their vehicle that I parked next to, they had to think I was crazy! I kept thinking, "if it wasn't 90 degrees in October, then I wouldn't have to wear my stupid flip flops!"
I promise not to wear flip flops out of the house for awhile, even if it is 90 + degrees.
