countdown to a cure

Today was a special day full of blessings and grace. After last month's medication mishaps (nothing major) and the usual long visits and delays, God simply gave GRACE. A wonderful day. We were so thankful. Bryce's labs are good, at least for his expected low and the doctor's commented on how good he looked too. They said he may continue to feel better yet by this summer! I am praying for that one. He gained some more weight, which is very good. His meds were ready and waiting, with no line to stand in, I might add. I know this won't be a usual occurrence, but may I just bask in this one for a moment?
My dear friend Patty went with us this month and we went to lunch and then headed back home, enjoying some uplifting fellowship. Dylan stayed home and went to book group with his friends, while Abby and Toby accompanied us and they were both very well behaved. I may get them a friend date for the next month's visit though.

Thank you all for your prayers, they are so appreciated and are giving us strength and encouragement. Blessings to you all this month.

Psa 7:17 I will give thanks unto Jehovah according to his righteousness, And will sing praise to the name of Jehovah Most High.

I need to take a very recent photo for this one.

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
