I need to make myself sit here and write more often. But we have school, activities, a toddler and a 12 year old. an adoption in the works, church, sleep and whatever takes up life s we know it.
I have been sick. I am tired of coughing and not being able to keep food down, if it happens to be that I am having a coughing fit while I am eating. Which has happened too often. I know TMI.
I am tired of no one understanding me because I sound sick as a dog. I am tired of pushing myself when I am so tired.
I am tired of whining.
So I will stop.. Again.
Thanksgiving morning, we all go out for our 5K Turkey Trot. It was pretty cold. But we finished and we were thankful.
Chloe was SO happy that it started to snow as we were leaving. I don't think VA Beach has much snow. ( click to view bigger)
Elly's first Thanksgiving. She fit right in. The food was amazing. As always. Thanks to my mom. :)
And of course I have to include a picture of my grandbaby. Oh, and my daughters. lol.
My 3 youngest. I think my oldest was on the couch 'watching football'. READ: trying not to fall alseep from eating too much.
Chloe & I were out the door 5:45am on Black Friday. I KNOW we were so late because we overslept. :P ( being sick and all)And after we got home, we took Elly to her first movie at the theaters. It was 3D and she thought it was fantastic! Sitting with Eugene the Moose.
And Saturday, off to find the perfect tree. Or at least a tree that was good enough because it was SO COLD. I was ready to take the first one I saw. We were there for an hour. Do you know what it is like to be outside for an hour in freezing cold weather??!!??
Not as fun as it sounds.
We just got back from our social worker's. I am hoping our dossier will be sent out before Christmas, or at latest, beforeNew Years. Though it is not as much paper work this time around, it is still time consuming.
And coming home, I got to thinking, there are so many children out there. So many waiting. So many just wanting someone to say, "My child, let me give you a hug." So many dying. So many hoping.
What will it take for us to live The Faith? To walk The Surrender? To give The Hug?
AND, it is beginning to look alot like CHRISTMAS!!!
