Sunflower turns one on Friday. I'm not sure how this can be. But that's what the calendar says, and so I suppose I must agree with it. She's also walking, and I've yet to catch it on video though my mom keeps reminding me to. It's not that I'm not fascinated or that I'm not celebrating her. But, well, I have seen it before (two other times in fact!), and I'm usually too busy kissing her chubby cheeks to run and grab the camera.
I also went on retreat this past weekend, and it was completely wonderful. I'm still unpacking it, and may post a little about it. But, God's words to each person are so...personal. For now, I'll just say that I learned so much about myself, both the good the bad and the very ugly. And I've been given hope that with God's grace, I just may be able to overcome some of the more negative aspects of myself.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
