Leave ’em hanging!

TV shows, movies and books use it to great effect. It’s called the “cliffhanger” which means: “leave ’em hanging.” The storyline involves a crisis but then ends without resolving it so you are left wondering how everything turns out. It’s a good way of getting people to come back for more, but that was not my intention with last Tuesday’s blog. 

Many of you who view my blog through Facebook left comments of well-wishes and as I’ve run into several of you the first words out of your mouth have been to ask about Aaron and the kids. Thank you so much for your concern and your prayers!

I am delighted to tell you that Aaron’s next couple of nights have gone much better. He is settling into a routine and had a good first check-up with the pediatrician. He’s even gained 1/2 ounce since leaving the hospital!

Sam and Valerie came over later that Monday afternoon that Grandma Susan got to babysit Aaron. Susan was able to share with them a few practical suggestions that were helpful and we both offered plenty of encouragement.

All of this serves as a reminder as to why God gives us each other to share the journey. So that we can encourage one another and share what we’ve learned.There are, in fact, over 50 “one another” statements throughout the Scriptures!

Take time today to appreciate those who are sharing the journey with you. And thanks for sharing this journey with us!
