It means FAMILY. Sticking out the bad times. Laughing in the good times.
I'm so glad I have mine, so blessed. We are accepting the challenge of our pastor who gave a sermon about complaining and being thankful. To NOT complain for the next (now) 29 days.
The kids are reminding
We love 'em, stinkers and all. And we are so thankful we have this family.
Our Social Worker visited to see the house last night. We were glad to show her we are ready for Phoebe. We can't wait to get paperwork moving on. It's taking longer than we ever could have expected, not that we are complaining because God's timing is PERFECT.
He has our lives planned. He knows when Phoebe is meant to join us. And we have peace in knowing that. Even when we are wanting to be impatient. We can't help but fall back on God's perfectness. And trust in Him.
So we will see how things go when the treasures come home from school today, if they remembered they were not supposed to be complaining. If they can be thankful for this day, each other, their parents, their home, their supper? O
I did take advantage of them not supposed to complain to say "I want a picture of you, stand here" and it worked:))) Aren't they just so cute??
I am puzzled about one thing. Miss Kat. (No it's not the mystery of her bangs, I've given up on that answer) but her teeth? She lost her 2 front teeth some time ago, and there's not a sign of the big teeth coming in anywhere.
I don't have a doubt she will be able to sing "All she wants for Christmas is her 2 front teeth." I seem to recall all the others lost teeth and the big ones came in really soon. So I wondered-- why aren't hers?
Should we be worried? Anyone know?
