I am impatient today and don’t feel like talking myself into calling it anything else. I’m impatient for Brad to get better, for our lives to revolve around something other than superbills, doctor’s appointments, and symptoms. I’m impatient for the weekend to start. I’m impatient to schedule another trip home. What’s the cure for feeling at a standstill?

If you, like me, are killing time waiting for a change, may I suggest these interesting links?

// I spent a day and a half scrolling through this map of the solar system. If the moon were the size of one pixel, here’s how far apart everything is.

// This woman is teaching me how to pray for my husband, just when I felt like I didn’t know how to ask for the same thing any more.

// I love clever book design.

// The two easy dinners we can’t stop making: Shanna’s Butter Chicken (having it again tonight) and the humble tuna sandwich (with pickles, you have to use pickles). Plus one easy dinner that will go on repeat soon: Korean Beef Bowls (we add sauteed greens).

// My friend Kristin’s How to Save a Bad Day Pinterest board. Just go and be happy.

    The biggest thing saving my day today is the insane (!) package (!) that arrived at our doorstep this afternoon. I want you to know two things (1) You have the best taste and (2) You might be the kindest couple I know. I told Tim at dinner tonight I can’t believe you exist, and that’s funny because I can’t believe he does, either. God is so good to me! Thank you for being one of His biggest and best earthly ways of showing it lately.

    ps I just read the post about praying and am now sitting here crying. I’m so glad you linked to it and I’m so glad to be pushed to pray by you and for you and with you.

    Are you trying to make us jealous with that picture of an orange tree?

    It’s working.
