It has been a long time but I am starting to feel like a person again.
Last night I slept a full seven hours. That is in itself is a miracle. It has been soooo long since I have not had trouble sleeping due to congestion and coughing.
My energy level is almost normal. My head is not stuffy.
I thank God so much for giving me the strength lately.
By the way, Sunday was fantastic. It was my first service for the "first service" and I had six new children. We had a blast and I enjoyed the small group where I could sit on the floor and get to know each child personally.
Then the second service was bigger than it has ever been so far.
My passion was renewed.
We have a very slow week at home and I am just enjoying it. Hopefully by tomorrow things will be back to normal and I can post a ton of pictures.
Thank goodness for my two older ones who have helped me hold it together. They have managed to pick up the slack and also keep my head on straight as I suffered through way to many steroids lately.
Jake is wanting to post tomorrow night too. He has so much to tell you. One thing I need to tell you is this boy has a temper! It is coming out and he is so cute about it.
We do have a football game too. This will be Jesse's first since he torn his ACL and fractured his kneecap three days before the first game of the season. Everyone is excited.
As you can see around here every day has new challenges but also has so much fun.
We spent 10 minutes just stretching this afternoon. Poor Marvin is so stiff. He was funny. When he would raise his hands above his head his feet would just naturally pull up. We laughed and laughed. Giggling is the best medication I know.
More soon...

Yes, laughter is the best medicine. I just spoke to moms at a MOPS group in Colorado Springs and that was my message. How fun to find your blog.

And thankful to know you have a heart for adoption...
