The other morning - Zak was so excited that there were so many flowers that were in the yard just waiting for him to pick for me.
Neat to think that what one person sees as a weed another person may see as a beautiful flower.
Sometimes it takes a little one to remind me to look past preconceived ideas and see what is really there - right in front of me.
I am so glad that God looked past my faults and saw me - now to practice being like Him when I look at others.
Last week we attended their spring recital. They all played their violins - and Mama was proud. Next year will be different -new avenues being explored and perfected.
Rachel will continue her study of the violin. Abbey will pursue a larger stringed instrument; and James will start polishing his brass. Zak will start his musical venture with short violin lessons each week; and Mama will be praying for his teacher. :)
Thanks for stopping by - I am so glad you did.
Don't be too impressed with the beauty - I turned around for a minute and she picked all the blooms off - and threw them on the sidewalk. :)
Glad I got the picture first. Thanks for stopping by, I am so glad you did.
This week last year her foster parents brought her to our house- her 'forever' home. We enjoyed snapping pictures of the two families brought together by one little girl.
Trust this past Sunday you were able to reflect on the significance of Motherhood in your own life - whether reflecting on the gift of children that God has given you - or the sacrifices of your Mother. We all have so very much to be thankful for! Thanks so much for stopping by - I am so glad you did.
After Daddy would leave to head back to the church I would take over. Life stopped. I had made meals for two week - so there was not anything pressing that needed to be done. I just wanted to enjoy my baby. Most afternoons during her visit we would simply sit in the rocker and rock. She would suck her two little fingers and fall asleep. I would watch her and fall asleep too. :) I was so tired - I only had 6 days for nesting - and had been quite busy getting everything ready for her arrival.In the evenings she would go back to her foster home. I thought this would be hard fro me - but it was not. I knew she needed them too at this time; and truth be told they needed her. Our week of 'hello' -was their week of 'goodbye'. It brought such mixed emotions to my heart! What blessed memories I have of that first week when we started getting to know her and she started to get to know us. Adoption - a beautiful gift!
After the first week of getting to know her we were looking forward to our first weekend where she would come and spend the whole weekend at our house! Her first sleepover! More on that next time....
Thanks for stopping by and walking down memory lane with me.
