Three weeks to rest up like Faith here, comparing Bible passages before bed in her bunk, in the 5th wheel.
I so enjoyed the freedom of being DONE with the adoption of our 3 precious love bugs. DONE with a Dossier. DONE with our fund raising. (but NOT done with helping others!)
(Lysa on the couch bed in the 5th wheel)I was not sick. I was just tired.
Two adoptions in two years. I needed the 3 weeks to rest. I needed to relax and enjoy the scenery in Northern Minnesota. I loved waking up each day, knowing the hard part for OUR 3 boys was over!
Now the FUN is about to start! The JOY of having OUR 3 boys come home. I AM RESTED! I AM READY!
It looks crowded at this angle but it's not.
The playpen is in the living area of the 5th wheel.
They would sleep like this even if they slept alone.
They sleep in silly positions!
Sometimes they sleep sitting side by side! I turn the light on at 6 am and don't even need to sit them up to wake them.They are already sitting up! They lay on each other as they sleep too, like one is a pillow for the other. They really are growing close, they LOVE each other! :o) Their relationship as brothers is blossoming.
This is MA in the bunk house sleeping!! LOL!!
99% of my readers are amazing people who understand my life, even if they don't live like we do. They know tired is normal in a busy life. And it is a GOOD tired. A tired where you know you have completed a full days work of LOVING little boys and girls, and 2 precious women.
But that 1% of my readers seems to have a flair for causing trouble. They "read" tired as: "look she can't handle her responsibilities". And they use my words against me like wild fire. (Why do people listen to them?)
Thanks, but that's so far from the truth it's not even funny.
I have lived this busy life, doing this for over 29 years. Twenty nine years ago we adopted our first child.
To the 1% who do not care about the children we are adopting. (Yes, if you cared you would not try to hurt their chances of joining a loving family.) Please, find something else to do. Search your hearts, read your Bible, pray, anything. But leave us and the other families alone.
Look at the log in your own eye before you point to the speck in your brother's.
It is 7:12 a.m. in MN and we are already off to a wonderful day PRAISING our Lord!!
God Bless you ALL!
