Moving Forward…

Mark is getting plenty of rest, but the rest of us in the family are staying busy, busy!  Between scheduling doctor’s visits and going back to work, lots of stuff has been going on around the Thompson household.
Marley spent a week in Savannah with her grandparents, so we were really excited when she came home on Saturday!  After the week we had, it was nice to have her little personality and big smile back in the house.  🙂

 I had to cut the grass Sunday – first time I’ve pushed a lawnmower in…I don’t know how long.  And Mark stood out back and pointed out to me when I missed a spot.  🙂  I kept threatening to run over his good leg with the lawnmower if he kept picking on me!

My dear friend Brigette and her family came by last night for dinner.  This was HUGE!  Brig and I have known each other since kindergarten at Memorial Day School in Savannah, but haven’t seen one another in 14 long years!  I was SO excited to see her, and meet her beautiful babies!
 This is me and Brig when we were roughly 6 years old – love her!  🙂

 Aaaannnddd….Ms. Marley lost a tooth yesterday!  It’s been really loose and she’s been dying for it to come out so the Tooth Fairy would come, and finally yesterday during Vacation Bible School, out it came!  So under the pillow it went last night, and this morning she woke up $5 richer!

Today we are visiting the Imaging Center for another CT scan of Mark’s chest, just to make sure the inflammation is going away.  Later this afternoon, he will finally have surgery on his broken left wrist, so pray it goes well.  I’ll update with progress later.


Progress is made daily, and for that I am incredibly grateful.  God is so good, and I am constantly in awe of how He uses such horrible events like Mark’s motorcycle accident to teach us things.  Mark is learning to slow down and rest, and we are getting closer as a family.


This verse has been special to me since my dad passed away, but it serves as a constant reminder of how fleeting life is, and to measure our days with moments, not things.  Take nothing for granted.
“Lord, make me to know my end, and what is the measure of my days, that I will know how frail I am.  Behold, you have made my days as handbreadths, and my lifetime as nothing in Your sight.  Surely, every man at his best is a mere breath.” – Psalm 39:4-5
