I have no words to express how grateful to God I am for relocating us fifteen minutes from a beautiful, crystal clear lake with a rocking beach. Our five year old treasure, who has numerous challenges and overwhelming anxiety which causes most activities to be challenging to say the least, is completely content-even overflowing with joy-when water is present. When we told her we were going to the beach this morning, I am not sure she remembered the beach concept as she wasn't super enthusiastic, but when we rounded that corner on the road to the beach and she spotted the water out of our van window she just clapped her hands and squealed. She raced to the shore as soon as we let her out of the car with the biggest smile on her face. To watch this dear, dear girl enjoying life so very much today at this place is to know true joy in your heart! This treasure once so close to death is alive and thriving! God is so good to allow us a small part of who she is becoming!
