Nora holding a beautiful card I received I’m the mail today. There is of course the beautiful trio of birds, and now the delicate cherry blossoms…
I am still in the process of sending out Nora’s birth announcements. The stamps I chose for the envelopes are primarily pink and blue featuring cherry blossoms. I chose them only because I liked the way they looked and because they matched the envelope color. I noticed there was a description of the stamps on the back of the sheets. Basically it explains the cherry blossoms in Washington D.C., how they came to be, who planted them, etc. At the end, it says this, “Because these spectacular trees flower so briefly, the Japanese often see them as poignant symbols of transience–making every blossom a invitation to celebrate being alive.” Pretty cool and appropriate, I’d say!!!.Just as is this card!
I’m of to bed with only a miniscule dash of anxiety lurking beneath the surface of my skin. Nora has another echo scheduled for tomorrow morning at Children’s. We’re hoping to get some answers and some direction. Please pray that all goes well for that visit and specifically that the echo goes smoothly for Nora with minimal stress for her.
Why, my soul, are you downcast?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.
(Psalm 42:11 NIV)
