We all went to the dentist this week. It may seem strange but it has been a huge milestone in living here. It’s not that going to a dentist is scary thing – in fact there is quality dental care and we had a great experience with both our dentist (for adults) and for the boys. But even a couple of months ago, going to the dentist was a overwhelming task. Sometimes we are amazed at how far we have come in living here, truly living here…and other days we still feel we have so far to go.

Today I’m thankful for what going to the dentist means. Living here just a bit more deeply.
