It's been a week since This happened:
So far, we've:
Attended the temple
Bought a dresser, painted it purple, assembled it, and got it up to her room
Listened to lots of music
Caught up on doctor visits
Picked out new glasses, also purple
I like that last one best. It's so good to have her home.
My friend Matt put this on my facebook page on the day she came home:
It's from Matthew 25:21
Good and faithful, indeed.
And yes, joy.
As a parent, you work and hope and pray and teach and dream and then
You let go,
My hand may have grasped, unbelieving, at the empty air, just for a minute.
Now she's back, just for a brief touchdown before her next flight.
I'll take all the minutes and hours and breaths and songs that she's here.
Oh, and the laughing.
There is always laughing with her.
