Short Post... more later

I am determined to succeed at something I have set my mind to, one small thing that seemed so feasible, in spite of the fact that my human weakness is driving me to give in to the easier option.
I am not feeling up to writing tonight, yet I have set myself on this new course. So - it seems like a fair compromise to tell you why I am not writing much tonight and may or may not post this week, in few words, and then give in to the desire to put my mind to sleep.

We met with Drew's metabolics/genetics specialist today to discuss the final outcome of his test results and the impact to our future decisions regarding family. I have promised to write on this before, but cannot bring myself to write on this one yet. Jordan and I don't know how to feel, let alone how to write about it in such a way as to share that with others. I know the right time will come. Until then, please forgive me for not writing this week. Pandora's box has been opened today and my emotional quota has been drained for the week so I think I may hibernate for a bit.

Thank you all for your continued prayers. I was reminded by a dear friend tonight that God is so good and blesses us abundantly in the most unsuspecting ways. I will be forever thankful for knowing Drew and everything that comes with knowing him. A wise friend said it well, "I liked who I was before this happened, didn't necessarily like who I was while in the middle of it, but like who I am now better than any of those I have been before." I pray I will always say the same about my future state.

I love you Kari and keep you in my thoughts. You were a beautiful person before, I have always loved your smile and remember your wedding, how much you smiled!! You were an extremely beautiful person throughout this last year and I know that God will bless you always. Thinking of you.

Whatever the final news was, I pray that you, Jordan, Drew and Peyton will be at peace. The path that your family chooses in the future will be a blessed path, in this I am confident.

May I be so bold as to say, slap me if necessary, that whatever the doctors and scientists have reported back to you, can and will not overshadow what God's will is for you and your family. Trust in him, as you have in the past, and He will guide you to the future that is in store for your beautiful family!!

Love you and will pray for you some more tonight!!

You guys are in my thoughts and prayers tonight.

Hi Kari. Just wanted to say that I think of you often. Not the kind of "think of you and feel sorry," but the kind that leaves me inspired and motivated to slow down, see the blessings that many times I miss while "hurrying" through the days, and thank God that through anything, He remains faithful...even when my faithfulness wavers. As you and your family have and continue to go through this journey, I can't say that I fully understand, but I hope it's helpful to know that so many of us have been blessed by your examples of faithfulness, strength, honesty and of course, love. You're in my prayers of thankfulness as well as those for God's ability to do immeasurably more than all we can imagine.

I hope today, Drew's birthday, was a good day for you. These special times of remembering can be hard in a way but I know you did something special in honor of Drew and I pray it brought a peace to you also. We love you! Someone once said-I don't know what the future holds, but I know who holds the future! I know God is holding all of you in HIS arms. :) love,
