A balanced diet

My family threw me a going away party today. There were hugs, tears and a prayer…my family prays a lot. Everyone stood in a circle around me and prayed aloud, and it was really pretty moving. Although I don’t have the best relationship with some members of my family, at the end of the day, they’re still my family and we love each other very much. My favorite prayers were:

Lord, please keep Thomas warm and safe. And make sure he eats his vegetables.

Uncle Ed: Lord, please let Thomas do your work and eat vegetables.

Aunt Laurene:
Jesus, please protect Thomas and make him eat lots of vegetables.

Obviously, there’s a common concern! I’m really going to miss them and I don't think I realized just how much until today.
