Our family is beginning to get ready for Christmas. Paul Burton went out shopping tonight and just phoned us to say he is stuck in traffic. Katy and her dear old mom and dad are surfing the internet, catching up on emails, and making our “to do” lists for Saturday.
Katy and I spent the day doing laundry and working on Christmas projects. We kept stopping from time to time to shout some praise. I can’t say enough how grateful we are for every day! We are grateful to be at home. We are grateful for every bite of food Katy can eat. We are grateful for the fourteen pounds she has gained since October twenty-fourth when she weighed seventy-nine pounds. We are grateful for uninterrupted sleep for several nights now. We are grateful that Katy is able to take care of herself, and has begun to catch up on reading and correspondence. These normal days are answers to prayer and miraculous to us.
