Word of the day- happy! Just a great day

Tonight my 9 year old that is on her way out of selective mutism is reading in front of the congregation. She was asked and agreed and even if she gets too nervous, having her agree and practice at rehearsal shows how brave she is becoming! It is amazing. She also has an awesome big sis who is her biggest cheerleader.


So happy you are having a great day Carrie and your story about your 9 year old gave me goosebumps. What a special opportunity and I am just so happy for you all. She is so lucky to have such an incredible and supportive family. Have the best time tonight watching her SHINE!


Thank you and she did it!! She read with confidence and then greeted people and spoke in an audible voice to many people. That has NEVER happened at church. Church is a place in which we have been completely stuck. I know some of it is Santa excitement but it’s a breakthrough I have been waiting for and I told her, there’s no going back!!


My one sentence…I no longer make cut-out cookies because they are either hard (ick) or the “soft” recipes turn into blobs all run together in the pan.

Ha! I did the exact same thing with my new boots! The right boot was all soft and flexible and the left was stiffer and I just thought it was the leather needing some wear in time. Glad I’m not alone. Happy Holiday to you and all the funnest runs in the new year!
