The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Just need to lighten the load

Well, there is so much sadness and desperation and pain going on with the people I love in this world that I needed to take a moment to lighten the load. In praying continually for Hope, praying for Gwen who is waiting for a court date to bring home Joseph and Daisy, praying for sweet friends who got some devastating news about their daughter, and praying for another friend who is going through a very trying domestic adoption, I needed to just stop and laugh about some of the random craziness in my very ordinary, very blessed, very "easy" life.

Do you know what these are? Well I do. I've been opening my cabinets in spite of them for 9 years! But no more! These are the child safety locks that USED TO BE on my kitchen cabinets and drawers! :) There are a few really good things about your children getting older... not many, but some!

And what about this? Do you know what this is?

No, it's not a marble. It's a bouncy ball. And do you know where I found it? In my garbage disposal. I think I will start a whole separate blog to commemorate all the random things I find in household appliances that don't actually belong there. Remember this guy from the drier?

Need I say more?

Oh yeah, and guess what came in the mail today? Connor's first issue of ZooBooks! FINALLY!!!! Yippeee! He is so excited. He's waited on these suckers for over 6 months (so if any of you think of giving these as a gift, order now because it takes a LONG time for these to start coming.) Poor Connor, he asked me to order them based on the commercial he saw every day on TV during Tom and Jerry. So I went to the computer and when I clicked order, he immediately ran to the window and started watching. He thought someone was going to drive up any minute and hand him his book (sort of like the pizza man.) Then when he finally grasped that it would be coming with the mail, he checked the mail 3 times daily for the next several weeks. Just Friday he said to me that he thought they had forgotten to send them or else I went to the wrong dot com place because he never did get those books. Sweet boy!

Yep, I recognized all of those things. And ZooBooks bring back very fond memories. Perhaps I should order them for Liam and Lexi.

I continue to pray for all the families hurting and scared for their children right now.

In the face of it all, a ball in the sink is actually kind of funny isn't it. HUGS

Big hugs. No reason. Just hugs.

Ha! I once found a match box car in my VCR and then a tiny craft bead in my dishwasher that cost me a $75 service fee to get out. I love kids. :0))

Zoo Books bring back lots of memories for me too. I actually still have quite a few. They sell them at our local School Box store.

Don't you just love Star Wars Legos???
