Eat, Drink, and Be Mary

Today our friends, the Humphrey's, had us over for Sunday supper. It was this really delicious chicken with some sort of cream sauce. We all enjoyed it, including Mary. While we ate, she spent a little time in the "Johnny Jump-Up". But Mary was happiest with the human John (this was a big deal - she usually stays close to mom or dad)~

John and Tracy are really wonderful - they've been an amazing support to our whole family this past year, with prayers, meals and childcare, not to mention, a beautiful Blessing Way. Tracy was in London at the time of Mary's second surgery. She knew (partly due to my panicked emails sent at 3am) how worried I was about Mary fasting. Tracy committed to fasting during the same time. We don't really understand how fasting works (in the spiritual sense). But I do know that Mary's fast went surprisingly well. During a time when she should have been fussing to nurse, she was all smiles. We are so blessed to have this family as friends.
Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival. ~C. S. Lewis
