but the amazing thing is in all these moments I know He is there. For Sure. We are feeling so comforted by Him. We know that although we may be hurting He is there amidst it, even more so. I think in taking the time to process, evaluate, and dig deep into everything we are finding clarity. Sometimes you need discomfort in order to move on what is in your heart. He is meeting us in this space. We are sensing the swirling debris and many moving parts coming together, settling, and giving us a blurry but beautiful vision of what is next. But for now we pray, wait, and breathe a bit.

…and we are encouraged by so many of you. People we know, family, friends, and those I only know through cyberspace…..although we have never shared couch space, a coffee date, or even eye contact, your words have touched my heart more than you know. Asanteni. Thank you. So much.

*no Evys were harmed in the making of this post. Nope, she is just learning the fine art of “the drama” from none other than Miss Annikah Joy. Seriously she cannot stand to be left out.

    Looks like both girls have followed Bibi into the world of theatre. Hope you and Jason can celebrate quietly, and restfully his birthday.

    Roxanne, I just caught up on your blog and am thinking of you. We also received some bad news and are back in America, if you can believe it – Sean's father unexpectedly passed away. It's rough but I am glad we are here. I'm so sorry you can't be with your family stateside. Sending our best.

    You are capturing the beauty of the children you so love, so beautifully! I save your beautiful photography for my bulletin board (once I have my desk back). I would love to combine your pics of students with student pics of my latino children, but I am not allowed to take pics of my kids! Very sad, when there is such beauty in every child, especially those that quest for knowledge. You are becoming an amazing photographer, and thank you so much for posting the beautiful pics. The ones with the captions of Evy, are so beautiful! Gotta love a child that lives life with great emotion! (If not, I am not loved!!) Love, Aunt Karen
