How can I ever thank you all enough for your prayers? Tomorrow is a big day. We wait in anticipation for good news–trusting that our God in heaven will once again move heaven and earth on our daughters behalf. We’re praying that our dossier is passed…and that a travel date is soon to follow.
How wonderful that would be.
Aaah, life! I find myself vacillating between feeling like superwoman one minute–and the next thing I know, I’m wondering whether we have completely lost our minds with everything we have going on. Geez, talk about a roller coaster ride. My emotions are all over the place these days.
Maybe it’s the reality that there could, possibly, be further delays in us getting to our girls. Maybe it’s the emotions that come after many months of paperwork challenges. Perhaps it’s the ever-present naysayers that get me down.
For whatever reason, it’s just been one of those days for me.
But my family–they just make everything okay. I look at my treasure on this earth and I truly do feel so blessed. I don’t know what I ever did to deserve them. And to think that God ordained, before the foundation of the earth, that I would be mommy to two more of His most treasured angels…that makes me emotional all over again.
My heart swells as I watch my boys growing up. They’re no longer little (other than my five year old), they’re growing up to be mighty men of a faithful God. What a delight.
And their Daddy. Oh how I love their Daddy. He constantly pours himself out for these whom God has blessed him with. I love watching him teach these mighty warriors new things.
And I love watching them learn from their Daddy. Together.
New skills. New ways of seeing things. New ways of doing things.
They’re learning. Side-by-side.
With their beloved Daddy (and the dog who thinks he is just the best thing that ever happened on the face of the universe).
There can be nothing sweeter for this Mommy…than just observing, watching, taking it in, counting my blessings and literally naming them one by one.
They just make everything okay. Even on these kinds of days.
The gift of family.
When we’re not playing games, and learning at home together, we’re out and about.
While the big boys did a homeschool science class dissecting sheep brains (so NOT my thing!), the little sweethearts and I hung out and read books. We love books!
We love to read together as a family.
We love giving our children opportunities to learn and experience new things.
Oh sweet little Haven–how far this angel has come. She is like a little sponge–soaking up everything around her. Even six months ago she would never have played a little game of peek-a-boo with me as I tried to take her picture. Never. What an absolute treasure this beautiful little girl is to our family.
And her seriously bright sister brings such joy to my heart. She is going to be smarter than her Mommy in no time. There’s no stopping her. She loves to learn.
Who cares if Haven does not speak–her smile says more than any words could ever convey. I absolutely adore this picture of my angel.
Just hanging out together–even at the library–that’s what we love to do best!
Tomorrow brings new things, new challenges, new highs, new lows, new emotions and new situations to deal with.
Only one thing stays the same. From everlasting to everlasting.
His Name is Jesus.
FAITHFUL AND TRUE!
