I have had a few harder than normal visits with Mike this week.  He is full of things to say and I can't always catch what they are.  Sometimes i am elated and stunned at how clearly he says my name or hello or good morning or lay down.  And other times we struggle for a half hour trying so persistently to communicate one simple sentence.  It is draining and disappointing to both of us and i feel torn between pushing him to try to repeat it for the millionth time or begging to give up and quit the frustration.  Tonight after we both felt like cursing I remembered the truth.  And i told him.  "I praise God for what you say.  Whether I understand it today or not.  It is pure blessing to hear your voice.  I didn't always know I ever would hear your voice again.  My understanding, your clarity, will come."

I thank God again for where we have been, where we are, and where we are going.  God's gifts have been found sufficient for each step of this journey.  Thanks again for your sustaining prayer over this long haul.                     –michelle
