Together, Whole Again

Praise God that our little girl Paige is home and recovering from dehydration/stomach illness! Five days & four nights in the local hospital, we are slowly returning to "normal" at our house. Boy, did her brother and sisters miss her (as did Mommy and Daddy, whoever wasn't on "hospital shift" with her at the time)! And of course, when she was feeling good enough to think about it (which took 4 days), Paige really missed being home, too.

Even though they fight like cats and dogs sometimes, we still have a pretty tight-knit bunch here. Nothing felt right without Paige being here. We missed her compassion, her helpful & generous spirit, her fight for the underdog--even her whining!! We missed everything. We missed being together as a family.

These are the times when your heart grows so big inside of you that you think it will burst.

Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.--1 Corinthians 12:27
