my focus for this month {anticipation}

Anticipation - the excitement of this time of year is wonderful!

We are reading our favorite children's Bible each night to help prepare and focus our hearts on the true meaning of Christmas.  This Bible is a must have for kids - and adults too!  I love how it makes a direct connection to how Jesus is our rescuer at the end of each story.  It's beautifully written.

We are anticipating a lot this get togethers...opening presents...looking at Christmas lights...singing Christmas carols...participating in the Polar Express Day at school...making Christmas cookies...visiting the local live Nativity...and the list goes on...

{all without a seizure this year!}

We are also anticipating another EEG. On December 17th, Ben will have an EEG again. We will keep him up until 11:00 p.m. the night before and have to wake him at 4:00 a.m. on that Monday morning. We are anticipating great news! We are hopeful that the success we are seeing (absolutely no seizures!) can be confirmed through this test.  We are anticipating taking another step in medication weans as well. 

I can't wait to see all that this month will bring!

  1. I hate the sleep-deprivation part! But I'll keep Ben in my thoughts as the day approaches for his EEG. I hope and pray that you will see the wonderful results you are hoping for.
