sneak peek

here's a sneak peak of my visit to ny. i was able to go see joy and help with her new baby, eliza, for 5 days. to some it may sound like work, but i had such a GREAT time cleaning, cooking, freezing meals, playing with kids, reading books, washing, sorting and folding laundry, grocery shopping, etc. maybe it's because i was doing these things for somebody who i really care about. it always feels good to serve and i am so thankful to joy and dan for letting me share in their lives for a few days.

most of our pictures were taken with joy's camera...and i don't have copies yet. (joy - the disk will be on it's way tomorrow!) so, when i have more photos i'll share the nitty gritty details. until then, enjoy a few pics from the sacred grove. we visited there last sunday. i have a hard time describing what i feel when i am there. it's my second visit and i am so grateful for those opportunities. joy and dan and their family live about 15 minutes away. what a treat! more to come...

Wow, Joy's kids are so big! Well, not Eliza. And Joy, seriously, how can you look so great for giving birth just barely?! You guys have been friends forever. Glad you could go help her.
