The Missing Piece

The Missing Piece

I loved this video depending on what is going on in your life right now it can mean many different things. Some might see this as missionary work, a compassionate person reaching out to someone else, or finding Peace in one's life. I know right now many people are in turmoil and they need to know where they can find peace. Whether you are looking to place pieces of yourself in the right order or you are looking for the peace to settle your soul, I hope this video brings some comfort.

Lizzie is 8!

My sweet Elizabeth just turned eight last month and was baptized just this last weekend. We had a great time and I did shed a few tears. She is my baby girl after all, even if she thinks she's 16. I love how honest and strong she is. She also has the sweetest side to her with an abundance of patience. We love you Lou!

When you need a nap, You need a nap!

So, Christopher and I were outside cleaning/playing in the backyard. He decided to come into the house to watch some cartoons. Lately he's been playing with my laundry basket. He puts blankets in them and turns them into a car or a boat. This afternoon he decided to turn it into a bed. I love this boy!

YES I'M A LOSER BLOGGER! (loving and letting go)

Yes, many of you may have noticed that I haven't blogged in 10 months. Now I'm back. Some of you know that I started doing foster care back in August of
2009. Today I had sweet babies leave my home and my arms. I needed somewhere to place my feelings and my blog seemed like a good place. In January, I received twins that were 21 months old. They were the sweetest things. Do to confidentiality I'm not going to give their story or the mothers. Today though they went back to their mom and took a piece of me with them. I had a relationship with their birth mom, she has worked extremely hard to get them back. I'm proud of her! She did what she needed to under excruciating circumstances. It's a interesting feeling to put so much time, love, effort, and worry into someone that leaves. As my Aunt says, "it always stings when they go."
It made me think though of my Heavenly Father. Him putting so much time and effort into us knowing that we may or may not return to him. I am grateful for God, his love for me, and all of his children. No matter who you are, what you believe, where you go, he loves you, and I will always love those two sweet babies.

Sleep Deprivation

HELP! For the last two nights my little man has been sleeping awful! He was my best crib baby. He has slept through the night since he was 4 months old. He is now 2 and I feel like I have a newborn again. I update my blog with him in my arms trying to go to sleep. This is completely unusual for him. He was never a snuggler, always independent and curious. Now he lays here, part of me loving it and another part just a little bit annoyed. Isn't this how motherhood goes? Just when you think you have them figured out they surprise you.

I love this video! It brought tears to my eyes and warmth to my heart. I've never talked about my leg before on my blog and I realized the other day I'm tiered of telling the story or explaining it. So let me explain what this video has to do with my leg. On January 1, 2008 I was in a quad accident. The quad flipped and shattered my left leg. Since then I have had three surgeries and one procedure. I will spare you the gory details. I have been in physical therapy for a year and half. I am now down to two days a week. Woo hoo! I still have a gate A.K.A limp and it is quite pronounced by the end of the day! I will never be able to run again, so it was a good thing I did my first and last 5K in Georgia. It was the first time I ran anything longer than a mile and the last because I swore, I would never run anything close to a 5K or more again. So I crossed my "marathon" off my list of things I wanted to do. So as far as running I am completely O.K. without being able to run again. My true love is swimming and I can swim to my hearts content. Since this accident though, I have had the hardest time doing things I love. Sewing, Quilting, Scrapbooking, and Painting my house. I have always had the inside of my house painted. I love color. It says so much about you and I believe it brings happiness inside your home. Well I can't pick a color and I feel like I have lost all creative juices that used to flow through my mind but, this video brought something back to me today. Please enjoy it and find your creative outlet. And by the way if anyone has a great paint color please email it to me. I'm in the mood to paint!
