As you go about your days may the Lord be praised.
I would ask for your prayers as my family has had a wonderful opportunity presented to us and we are praying about it.
I am sorry I have been on and off the past few days. I have been helping our children finish up their art projects with friends, cleaning my studio and office...(.Oh bother as Winnie the Pooh would say), and helping a dear friend . For all you moms, grandmas, aunts, parents ( well you get the picture ) you will know what I mean. I so love you all , our "conversations", emails, friendships, posts and life because...as a Mom I have found that I have been so busy lately and my mind on so many things , taking care of my son and helping my friend Mary with her twins yes you know the ones....remember the mall and bathroom incident ,that when someone asks:
"What is your name? " I find my self ready to respond: "My name is Ned ....I don't like my little bed".....yes Dr. Seuss ( good guess)
Or if a friend asks before an art project "Do you have everything"? My answer lets check backpack, where is map? or lets go to our thinking chair ( yes Dora and Blues clues good guess)
Or lately when my friend Mary panics over the twins and moans" what are we going to do?" Lets call the rescue heroes or better yet Christopher Robin will know what to do....
Or when my husband or son asks about the grocery list: I find myself saying don't forget the Oatmeal Bert....like Ernie and Bert's big shopping trip.
Can you tell we read and collect lots of books in our house ? I am so glad Lauren sent me an adult Christian one to read right now.... By the way my husband and I love Max Lucado , how about you all?
Though I can in real emergencies think clearly. Well at least after a panic call to my husband and realizing that a plumber would cost a fortune ... and that advice of putting medimucil down the toilet would probably not be a good idea. The solution of a toilet tool and a brave teenager would solve the problem of the twins trying to teach army men to swim.
So yes I miss you all , will be by to visit and catch up, appreciate all your friendships will be back to you all. I am also helping get ready for a big charity drive of school supplies, backpacks and suitcases ( those go to foster children who have none ) to kids in need. If you would like to do something similar, this time of year is great to pick up supplies at a low cost. You can see if your local school district, museums , churches etc participate in distribution to the children in need. We are also helping with relay for life , as my friend Bea has a team. We have had pink shirts with wings made up and are Bea's angels.
May you all enjoy your day with the Lord and be blessed with his love today and always.
In his endless love,
