As I shared this past weekend on instagram, we headed out on Sunday morning from my favorite place on earth to embark on several different adventures of my precious sisters wedding, seeing dear friends, a fun writing job, speaking engagements, an intensive treatment schedule, a mandatory meeting with my main medical team, a new book release, and an amazing opportunity to visit the set of my favorite TV show.
I have tears because despite the difficult treatment days, sickness, and pain I still experience in this journey of healing I realize how far how I have come. Truly I feel overwhelmed by the goodness of the Lord for so many things. Thank you for all of your prayers for my continued treatment, our safety in travels, and for wisdom and grace to meet us each and every step in the days to come.
On Monday evening we safely arrived to the south and our home after 18 months away. We encountered several issues but also our sweet neighbors welcoming us home, the kindness of strangers helping us, and this beautiful sunset over the mechanic's office when our car battery was dead.
As we waited for the car battery to be worked on Monday evening, I walked the parking lot with my mom admiring the beauty of the sunset. All at once I had a memory from two years ago in the same parking lot. At that point I was so sick that it was hard to ride in the car for any length of time so my mom brought me to the parking lot to see the beautiful fall colors in the trees that surrounded it. We sat in the car, cried deep tears, and begged once again to the Lord for healing.
To be at this point two years later, able to walk that same parking lot, and see the healing progress that is taking place is a beautiful encouragement gift to my heart.

And then yesterday was absolutely perfect in every single way! Having the opportunity to meet in person one of my best friends was such a God-thing. It was absolutely lovely. I can't wait to share more about this exciting and amazing time with y'all very soon!
I hope y'all have a wonderful Wednesday!!
