The Best Medicine

Sy is on the mend and he's back to his silly self.

Today, when getting ready to go to the grocery store, Sylas asked if he could walk with his tractor {walker} out to the car. He had never done that before, but no problem.

So there he was, booking it through the garage and out on to the driveway. There was a tiny snowbank he had to go through to get to his side of the car, and when he spotted it, he looked at me with mischievous determination and plowed ahead. He got his front two wheels in and then tried {with his scrawny arms} to get the rest of the way through and ker-SPLAT! Face first into the snow. Oh, we laughed our heads off and it felt so good.



Later at dinner, Sy told the whole family his story about how he took his tractor in the snow when we were going to the grocery store. Ryan asked him what happened next, and with a twinkle in his eye, Sy said, "I went KABOOM!" And we laughed again. We laughed and laughed.

And it felt so good.

  15. I love when God answers our prayers in ways I never think of -- like falling in a laughter-inducing snow drift. We serve such a great God. So glad you all are feeling better.
