Christmas Time Is Here....

God totally amazes me sometimes. I was in need of more Elecare for JJ. As I have mentioned before, it is his main calorie and protein source. But it comes at a high price (about $5 a drink, 4 times a day). Of course when it comes to the health of your child, no cost is too high. But still, if there is a way to get what your child needs and not have to pay such a high cost, then ... well, as Martha Stewart would say ... it is a good thing.

I am not sure why or how it happened, but the doctor's office called today, just as we are finishing up our last can. They were just given a case of Elecare and want to give it to me.

There are those times these past few weeks where I have felt under attack. I have not shared yet because it has been a very emotional ride and also really caused me to really look at myself...where I am and where I know I should be. Where God would have me be.

But for now, I know that I need to spend this time with my family. So no posts for a week. My husband has been forced to take time off, and with Christmas right around the corner, we will be enjoying time as a family. Tomorrow (with the frigid cold outside) will be spent indoors baking lots of cookies and drinking lots of tea and hot cocoa! :) And of course plenty of time reflecting on the true meaning of Christmas.

Remember that Jesus is the reason for ... well ... for everything. :)

what a wonderful blessing for you. Our daughter just recieved all her diabetic needs free for a year, and what a blessing that has been. The Doctors office arranged the whole thing for her.
