It has been quite awhile since I've been able, or have even wanted, to post!
Summer has been so very full (as in fulfilling) of my family, the last thing I've wanted to do is sit in front of my computer.
Life has been good !
Yesterday, we spent the day in the ER with our 9yr old son. He's been having different 'concerns' over the last month, but after many tests (and still not a whole lot of answers) we think we might be onto something - we'll see how treatment goes!
Poor kid is supposed to head off to cubscout camp tomorrow, and the momma in me is screaming " NO WAY!!!" But, the daddy is assuring me he'll be just fine!
I'm so thankful for my man; if it wasn't for him our son wouldn't be able to : drive a tractor
(still gives my heart failure) , operate a weed-eater (he could slice his LEG open for goodness sake!) shoot a BB gun (AAAHH!!) or do all the many other things that dads train up their sons in.
If I had my way, he'd be wrapped up in pillows, hobbling through the house (well, no....I wouldn't THINK to let him go outside!!!)
(not really)
You see, what this girl does is she places her trust in her Heavenly Father.
If my man says "no Kristy, "9 year old son " is gonna be fine..."
I say alright.
It's all good.
I still have my motherly instinct going on here, folks. I still have my say.
But see, my man may know a little more in the 'boyhood' dept. because guess what?
He was one!
When I trust what my man says, I in turn, am trusting God. He put my man in charge for a reason. Even if my man makes the wrong call (and I refrain from singing "I told ya so!")
it's that my trust is in God, and God being the ever so cool God that He is, put that handsome dude of mine in charge - DOESN'T mean that I don't have my say.
So if your about to leave a comment about 'our motherly rights.......' RE-READ this post, okay -or at least read the last 8 words of the sentence above this one.
What else?
Oh I know:
Do you savor life?
Do you drink in things?
The birds.
The green grass.
The flowers outside.
The sounds around you.
The way the sun rises and shines on everything.
Your children.
Your absolutely scrumptious, God given, husband that you can't get enough of........oops.
Need to get ahold of myself here, sorry about that!
Not really.
Okay. I'm finished rambling here! Your all saying, "thank goodness".
Enjoy today.
Savor moments.
Give praise to Jesus Christ.
Have a WONDERFUL day, guys!

Lots of cuteness

Oh my goodness gracious!
Is this not the cutest little peanut ever ??
ooOo, I just want to squeeze those little cheeks......
This is Miss Abby, (whom I introduced on my blog awhile ago) who came home from China last November. I cannot believe how much she's grown!!!!
Look at this! Do ya think she's up to something??

Okay, I must tell you all about her mom; my wonderful friend, Amy.
Amy, who won't own a blog, the stinker is one of the most amazing people you could ever meet. Really.
She has held my hand throughout this entire adoption. I would be LOST without her.
Again, really.
Thank you sweet friend of mine. Just knowing that your praying for us, means more to me than you'll ever know.
I am overjoyed looking at your daughters precious little face....
Love you bunches.

So, since this is my blog (and Amy, you don't have one)
I am going to be the nerd that I am, and create my OWN award to give out: the cool person award!
Amy, YOU are the first recipient.
You will probably be the envy of all - but my friend, you deserve it.
Look at all the hard work I put into that.
Coming from someone who has yet to get a cool header thingy on her blog.......someday.
Hey guys ~ Have a WONDERFUL, enjoy the sun, love on your family, God Blessed weekend !!!!!!!!!
