Update: The kids and I made it home safe (and I'm still sane...I think). As we approached our gate to board the plane, guess who was waiting for us? Ms. Anne--the sweet lady who helped me on the way there. She kept her word and was waiting to help me with the kids, and she even brought gifts for the boys. She was truly an answer to prayer. Thank you, Father, for Ms. Anne and for reminding me once again that you always provide. You are good to me.
How come Chris and I always seem to be reading the same book at the same time? This is seriously getting old...I really wanted to curl up in bed and read a chapter or two of IT (I know that that a book title is supposed to be underlined-right?, but I can't seem to get my computer to do that--frustrating.) before falling asleep, but he obviously had the same agenda...so I am blogging about nothing instead.
I need to read a parenting book next...Any suggestions?
Church rocked today. It was so amazing to see so many people leave at the end of the service, rush to Publix, and then return with loads of bottled water and canned goods for the people of Haiti who are without power and even homes right now because of the hurricane. Keep praying for them.
How come it took me until my third child to learn how to really enjoy a baby? I hate that I always felt stressed or strapped to a schedule with my boys to the point where I didn't enjoy their early baby days like I do Annie's. I could just sit and hold her and watch her smile all day.
What is it about a computer screen that you can be beyond exhausted when you sit down to check your email one last time (because you are delaying brushing your teeth and washing your face --all because you are too tired), and then for some reason as soon as your eyes focus in on the screen you get this second wind?.....before you know it, you are wide awake and spend 2 hours on the computer!..Now it is almost midnight, and I still have to brush my teeth and wash my face before I can fall into bed...the good new is, my book is free to read now--Chris is out like a light. I will read one sentence and be asleep...the difference between computer screens and book pages.
