We are FINALLY having a few sunny days here. I’m so excited to be getting my Vitamin D from the sun that I just don’t have much time to be on the computer (or doing laundry, or cleaning… or cooking… such a waste of time when there is SUNSHINE!) So please excuse the bullet post, but that’s all I’ve got for you right now.
~ There is still no news from Haiti. Not even a whisper.
~ Recently a friend in the USA posted a prayer request for our adoption on a prayer line she is part of. Over 400 people received a request to pray for Giselle’s release into our family! I was so blessed and perhaps it was a mix of finally seeing the sun for the first time in 2 weeks and the prayers, but that day was a really good day.
~ Saturday is mine and Darren’s 16 year wedding anniversary. My dear hubby offered to buy me a ticket to go see Giselle. Which is crazy because we have no child care and he is more than swamped at work right now. I’m going to wait, but just the thought was a huge blessing to me.
~ Kylar brought me breakfast in bed a few days ago. I woke up to yogurt with fresh strawberries and blueberries, and heavily buttered toast at my bedside. I sure like that kid.
~ Speaking of Kylar, I am so amazed at his attitude towards soccer this year. In previous years he would be depressed and angry if his team lost, but now he says “But I’m so happy with how we played! We played really well.” A mixture of great coaching and some maturing. This is huge for my very dramatic, emotional kid.
~ Amara is doing a developmental leap right now and coming up with all kinds of new phrases. “Mom, can I ask you a question?”, and “What are you eating for?” Many of them make me laugh and I wish I had an instant recorder of all the things she is coming up with now.
~ Two days ago we were driving to Old Navy – the wind was picking up and it looked like it might pour rain. I was wondering if I had my umbrella packed, Amara was commenting… “Mom, look! The flowers are dancing!” She was amazed. I am amazed at her.
~ Getting excited about our new project that I still haven’t told you about. I will. Soon.
I hope the days are full of sunshine where you are – and that you get to experience them to the fullest!
