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.
