Two for Tuesday

What if we would have said no to adoption?

What JOY we would have missed out on!!!!

Please consider adoption......it truly CHANGES lives.

Laundromat fun????

We had major plumbing issues that forced us to spend sometime in a local hotel.  Fun, right??? Not when your teenager hasn't done laundry in about a month.  She had just told me on the way home from school on fri. that she was "going to spend the whole weekend doing my laundry".  Saturday morning we wake up to trouble.....so I say I will take you to the laundromat.  She has never been and is quite anxious about the situation.  She was shy at first but soon realized, no one really cares about you at the mat.....they want to get done and out of there as soon as they can.

She, of course, stated she would never go to a mat again.  I reminded her that if she still is insisting on going away for college, this was part of the life of a college going gal.  She didn't like that answer at all.

She couldn't believe I had my camera

Our laundromat

Do they all have the same floors?????

I tried to explain the joy of having several machines...she didn't get it

We spent a couple of nights in the hotel waiting for the plumbers to do their magic.  Funny how Claire can make a fort anywhere, anytime, with anything.  We went to eat so the little ones could play at the playground.  We swam in the pool and had it all to ourselves!!  Glad to be back home with great plumbing.

Sunday Snapshot ~Embracing the rain~

It has rained for 3 solid days....we have done everything on our rainy day list and still desire to go outside.  Well Fri. they thought they were brave enough.

It didn't matter that our boots were on the wrong feet.

Getting braver (it was kind of chilly)

"Raindrops on my tongue feel great"

"me too, me too!!"

Awwww yes, embracing was good.

Do you want to play along????

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
