t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


A Small Moment

I was so grateful for a peaceful moment today.  A moment to look out my back window and see this.  And then another moment to appreciate it.  It was a tender mercy from God.

My little Ellery had a peaceful afternoon without pain.  I am praying it lasts.  Her doctors are praying it lasts.  We have all been praying for inspiration.  It may have come today.  We will see what the night brings. I'm not sure I have it in me to repeat the last 8 days and 9 nights again.  I felt my heart being wrenched.  Today the grip loosened, and I could breathe.  We all could.
