I have a prayer journal I picked up before we were married that has notes through the years. I would flip open the journal, read the prayer and jot down what was going on. Now looking back over the last 11 years I find things like " Hope the adoption paperwork comes through before mothers day! 4-2002" and "Worried about J learning to write his name" "Want to support Sheff, wish I couple help him more with Urban" " Feeling sick with this pregnancy how I am going to get M potty trained?"and so on. It is such a good reference point for the fact that this too shall pass and the beauty and forgiveness a new day brings.
