No pics to accompany, but had to share two sweet moments that happened over the past week.

A couple of weekends ago, S had a friend stay over (we talked about it in an earlier post).  Well, S had a blister on her lip, so S, her friend, and Tony went to the pharmacy to get some lip balm for it.  While they were there, they bought me a rose.  It was entirely their idea, I guess.  But they came home with a long- stemmed red rose for me.  They said they got it because I was so sweet and nice. :)  I looked for the sarcasm and found none.  Ha!  (See how much I trust two sixth grade girls?)  They were honestly trying to be nice!  That rose sits in a C*ke glass on my counter.  Every time I look at it I smile.  And I thank God that He chose us to have S for this season of our lives.


And then yesterday, Tony and Abby ran to the grocery (after he let me sleep in until 11!!!  Yes, be jealous!)  Well, S and Laney were out back playing and our neighbor's grandchildren were out there.  Our kitchen window was open so I could hear and see them.  S walked up beside Laney, and I heard her proclaim loudly, "THIS IS MY SISTER!" and point directly at S.  Oh, my heart!  S immediately ran back in giggling to tell me.  I could tell she wasn't sure how to process the emotions that went with Laney's declaration, but was pleased, nonetheless.  We knew she loved it when she repeatedly told the story to Tony's mom and dad and mine later that evening.  She also wanted to tell a co-teacher I work with this morning.  Sweet Laney.  Sweet S.

Oh, God!  Prepare our hearts now, if she is to only be with us a short while.  However, if she is ours for a loooong season, we will be overjoyed!  If our home is the safest place for her to be, Lord, bless us with this child!  Your will be done!
