Growing families

New fun coloring books for grown ups and sharing some of the funnier pages with friends to help brighten their day

Getting the cherry in the fruit cocktail still makes my day just like it did years back when I was a kid (and thankfully now I won’t pitch a tantrum if I don’t end up getting it)

A great roomie chat with Deb about ship life and the weird struggles and anxieties we all have here and being able to laugh at them and feel normal

A new friend and kindred spirit and already making plans for an epic trip when its time to leave the ship

Shea’s thoughtfulness in signing me up for a different washing machine when she noticed the one I was supposed to use was broken… again with the laundry room blessings

Finding a photo of kiddo with a walker because, these kids with walkers just make my heart happy

Two unique experiences to see the heart of the men of this community and to be moved to tears by how they worship in prayer and song
