String of Events

Well, this week has been a lot to absorb. Yesterday upon hearing that Sam's Dad is very sick and in the hospital, I decided to begin my maternity leave. Things were pointing in that direction, but it is so hard to imagine having any less time with Matilda once she is here.

We are still waiting to hear on the status of Mr. Sam and how he is feeling. There is also a hurricane heading that way, so there were a lot of hard decisions to be made yesterday. Please pray for Mr. Sam and our family and for peace. There has been a lot of stress lately. We believe that God has a plan and this year has been filled with more challenges than we're used to, but we're handling situations as they present themselves.

It is amazing to see the strength that God has placed in my Sam. I am so proud of him. Most people would fall to pieces when faced with the hurdles that he has been, but he has maintained so much grace.

I'm feeing nostalgic as everything is about to change, so here are some old pictures for your viewing pleasure:

Hey Grahams

I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Sam. I know how hard it is to have people you care about going through tough times when they are farther away than we would like. E and I are praying for all of you and know you will make it through this with the grace with which you both do everything. Please lean on us if there's anything you need.
