Sawyer, Solomon and I were eating a picnic lunch in our backyard today when I casually mentioned that we needed to go to the store to get some groceries.
“You need to get Lifesavers,” replied Sawyer.
For crying out loud.
I bought a bag of sugar-free Lifesavers (a true dentist’s wife) a while ago and Sawyer LOVED them. We ran out and he was devastated. I thought he forgot they even existed.
It got me thinking about lifesavers and how I could not ever survive without my own personal bag of lifesavers. They are not sugar-free but they do come in many varieties. I am blessed beyond belief to have so many of them in my life.
You know who you are. I can’t mention each of you by name because I know I would leave someone out and I would never want to do that. Let’s just say I am showered with the love and support of good friends.
I especially feel it now as so many of them are rallying around our family while husband is away hiking through Machu Picchu.
Nothing teaches my children about Jesus more than a group of people who are His hands and feet. Thank you for being my lifesavers.
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!”
Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10
Who are your lifesavers?
