Just wanted to post a quick note of thanks for all of your prayers and sweet thoughts.

Yesterday was such a rough day for me.

Thankfully, Todd’s game was cancelled and Tim was able to be with Olivia for hers so I stayed home in the evening and just had some time to clean a little and do some good crying.

I was “forced” out into the world today, because I had committed to subbing for a friend a long time ago. It was good for me to be out and about……..hearing kids say silly things like, “Ms. NahNah” as my name. Nischan isn’t always the easiest name for kids to remember.

And one little girl asked if I subbed in her class last year and gave them each a coin. She was so excited to tell me that she still has her rupee!! That made me smile!

I’m thankful even in the midst of my sadness. Tim and I have texted back and forth today about Nick, about his life, about his grave……it’s been good.

We are both so sad and yet want to be so happy for Nick. He’s the winner, because Jesus conquered the grave!

It’s a daily decision we have to make: to get bitter or get better, to resist pain or accept it, to live in misery or in victory………

Thank you for lifting us up as we strive to live for Him who gives us Eternal Hope.

Praying for you too!
