THE LITTLE THINGS

Thank You, Lord for the little things that are huge! Today Melanie and Witt went for their first car ride alone!!! Up until now Melanie needed to sit in the back seat with Witt because of the danger of him pulling out the feeding tube from his nose. Jim and I are out of town so Mel ventured out with Witt. He still has the oxygen tube in his nose but that doesn't seem to bother him as much so he leaves it alone most the time. Also, the monitor alarm would sound if he grabbed the oxygen. Melanie called and left us a message. I wished I could put the message on the blog. The sound in her voice was wonderful. It had to feel huge to be able to get out on her own with Witt! Here's a picture she sent. The caption was: "What a trip to Sonic does to a guy". Thank you, Lord...may I never take anything for granted again!!!

Thank you once again for witnessing to all of us with your walk of faith. I am so happy that Witt is doing better and that you have had a quiet week together enjoying sweet moments with your son. Witt has grown so much and I am touched by the sweet pictures of him with his Mommy. We continue to pray for all of you.
Love Judy

It's the little moments that memories are made of...not necessarily the big ones. What a sweet post and a joy to read.

Okay so you have to forgive me for ALWAYS saying stuff like this, instead of something deep and meaningful BUT seriously... Witt is TOO cute for words! I wish he was in the car that pulled up next to me at Sonic!! YAY for your first solo outing...And let's be honest, a mom can never hear how cute their lil one is too many times can she? No way, right?! So I'll keep saying it... because HE IS ADORABLE!
