Hospital

One trip a year to THIS HOSPITAL is quite enough, thank you!

But this hospital here!?

 This we can handle!!

copyright-katherine-marie-022713g

 There seem to be some “beary” nice patients.

Although I don’t know about the staff.  Sometimes they don’t even bother wearing clothes to work.

copyright-katherine-marie-022713h

I suppose the fun atmosphere and colorful medical equipment makes up for that!

copyright-katherine-marie-022713i

All in all the staff seem professional and quite friendly.

 And you’ll never believe this— the bill?!  Completely FREE!!

Yep, I think we can handle another trip to this hospital!

xoxoxoxoxo!

This little fella has had his share of being sick this winter.  Last month we took a trip the ER after he threw up 30 times in one night.  Now he’s fighting off a cold and fever.

 The one benefit of being sick, of course, is breakfast in bed and lots of extra snuggles!!

Holy Moments

When your life is filled with the desire to see the holiness in everyday life, something magical happens: ordinary life becomes extraordinary, and the very process of life begins to nourish your soul!

being silly…

entertaining imaginary guests…

these are the holy moments of my life.

Often times I’m too busy, too stressed, too blind to recognize these moments as “holy.”

But they are.

Holy because when I take time to pause, I feel His presence and I feel His love.
