TAG......I'm it.

My sweet friend Amy (http://thechunster.blogspot.com/) tagged me. Seven random things about me.

1. I have been a nurse longer than I have not. I graduated when I was 22 and now I am 44. I still learn things everyday.

2. I have a phobia about bald white men. I awakened from surgery one time with a bald male nurse RIGHT IN MY FACE...I think that scared me for life.

3. I enjoy a Disney movie over all else. When will I ever enjoy a grown up movie??

4. I am addicted to PEOPLE magazine. When Fri. comes and the new one comes in the mail...I must not be disturbed until it is read cover to cover. Good thing Duane is off on Fri. evenings.

5.I won't ever have any other kind of dog except a dachshund. I love their long bodies and short legs.

6. I have never been snow skiing...where are the brakes on those things????

7. I REALLY wish my children would stay young forever. I don't think I will know how to parent teens...

We are 1/2 through our wait for our LOA...I hope the next 45 days REALLY flashes by. Hopefully with the holidays it will.

Do you....

Know that there are nights I can't sleep from missing you?

Know that I look at the moon everynight and blow a kiss to you?

Know that I love you more and more with every passing moment?

Know that I can't wait to go to the boys section in the clothing store?

Know that I have already bought you so many more things than you could ever wear?

Know that your sisters hurt to have you home everyday?

Know that your father has already started gathering tools for you?

Know how BADLY we want you home.....NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

Great Pumpkin Adventure

Nothing beats a great day at the pumpkin patch. Come on fall....we are ready. Next year we will get to bring home 3 pumpkins!!!

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
