Photo A Day Jan 24

It's here!  It's finished!!

Today I am thanking God for:

77.  The lifter in the van and for the Variety and Lions clubs for paying for the majority of it.   At the moment I am still working out the best way to use it seeing as Ashlea's current wheelchair is not suitable for travelling in.  For the moment I have moved her car seat to the back row and we are standing on the lifter with the walker to go up and down (don't panic I'm on there with her and the OT said it was OK!);

78.  Day Camp was a huge, enormous, successful WIN for my girls.  They had so much fun, got to meet new people, try new things (ice skating was a particular favourite), learn about God, and generally have a bigger experience of the world than they usually would.  The camp ended for Emma as it began - with tears - because she was so sad it was over.  We will definitely go again;

79.  A committee meeting.  Yesterday the 'committee' from church whose job it is to support our family met to discuss Project Respite for this year.  Have I mentioned how amazing our church is? Seriously - there is a committee and a plan just for our family (actually there are probably committees and plans for other families too - I just don't know about them).  We have been - and continue to be - so well taken care of by our church family.  I definitely thank God for them!

1 Tim 4:4-5 
For everything God created is good, and northing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer

The van looks great. So much easier than lifting.
