This week has been a whirlwind.  So many things happening at once, events I don’t want to forget.  So a brief post, mainly because I seriously won’t remember some of this later on.  This is for real.  My memory is SO BAD.  I’m chalking it up to a lack of sleep and freakishly busy season of life.


Baseball.  These boys of mine are THE cutest ball players in town.  They love the game, and I love watching them.

Blogging.  I had the chance to share some real thoughts in my post Not the Same over at No Hands But Ours this week, and I am shocked by the response.  There are SO many others who are walking this post-adoption journey with me.  Every month I pray about what I will write, and sometimes submit a piece of my heart with my breath held; just hoping simple words will reach the one person the Lord has in mind.  Whether it’s one person reached or hundreds, I am always in awe that He is allowing me to be in this place.

Bravery.  So much bravery from my littlest peanut.  Today I had to remove her fingernail for her.  It developed a blister under the base of the nail a few weeks ago that kept refilling after repeated popping sessions.  We knew it would come off eventually, and today was the day.  It was hanging on by just a little bit, and she asked me to take it off.  It was the most unnatural thing I have ever done; but it didn’t hurt her, and at the end, she said, “dat feel better now!”  I was so nervous about hurting her, I asked her to pray for me while I worked on it, and she did.  The sweetest words of blessing poured over me as she asked the Lord to help her fingernail come off.

My cup runneth over.
