Last night during worship at Elevate, one of the staff members, Ashley, came up to me and said that she felt like God was wanting to tell me, "You ARE making a difference." Ashley doesn't know me well, and she didn't have any idea what I've been going through with Holden, but she was obedient to tell me exactly what I needed to hear. I just started crying. I felt so encouraged and affirmed in my parenting.
So today is a day of celebration for Holden and our family! After school, we picked up Turner and Ryan from home and headed to Dairy Queen for lunch. And I even let the boys eat their ice cream first. Then I let Holden stay up from his nap and watch a movie instead. And I think the Montgomerys may stop by in a bit to celebrate a little more with us!
If you think about it, please continue praying that:
- Holden continues to process through the move well,
- Holden falls into a routine of following instructions and having FUN at school, and
- we would be faithful to parent him well, asking God every morning what it is that Holden needs for that day.
Thanks for all of your support on the phone, through texts, and emails! You are invaluable in the lives of the McCormicks!
