note to self: go outside

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." —  Henry David Thoreau credit My phone died recently. Not like died because of its charge — permanently died. I'm not the only one whom this has happened to, I'm sure, and this isn't a complaint. Rather, it's an observation on how different the landscape of my life has been without it. I've been reading more, watching more TV, doing less doomscrolling. I found that I've missed my phone a lot less and simultaneously a lot more than I expected. And I've been noticing a difference in my mental state. My mental health is, apparently, linked in part to the device I hold in my hand 99% of the time. Who knew? However, it's still been challenging lately, for more reasons than just my phone, and my sister invited me to go outside with her. Th

Update on *Muffin* :)

Thanks for all of your prayers! This time I have some good news....

As you know, *Muffin* was admitted to the hospital last night, and my mom & I went to go see her. It was really intense when we got there, because she was getting checked by a pediatrician, and was really upset. When babies have croupe, they have this unnerving barky sound to their cough.... No offense, but they sound kind of like a seal! It was really rather scary for me, because I had not expected that. Right when we got there, *Muffin* reached out to Mom, which really tugged at our heartstrings. Even though she was struggling, she was still our *Muffin*!

Mom held her the whole time we were there. That freed up her mom to go home and get the things they needed to spend the night at the hospital. It was also *Muffin*'s dad's birthday, but he didn't mind. It was rather neat to see.

While we were there it seemed she improved. She got more peaceful while Mom was holding her, and when we left she was sleeping on her Momma. :)

As of today, we found out that she is going to be released from the hospital this morning. That is a great relief to hear, because at least she is stable and doing better. If you would like to pray still, just pray for *Muffin* to get better, as well as her mom, dad, and grandma to have peace.

BTW, *Muffin* is not her real name. :o)

Thanks for praying everyone! I really appreciate it!

In His Love,
