Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

It's the Mother of the Year Again

Just so you all know how absolutely imperfect I am. I already told you I'm not a good housekeeper.

But, tonight, I got the girls out of the tub to find Caleb home with his and Brandon's senior pictures.

We looked through the pictures and oohed and ahhed once again. Then Brandond asked what was for supper, and I told him. I asked if he was really hungry because I could have it finished in less than 10 minutes.

When he told me he was REALLY hungry, I went into the kitchen to finish up.

It was then that Ellie spoke, "Hey, Mama, you didn't put a diaper on me."

So, I had left the poor kid in the floor wrapped in her towel from the bath time...all the while sharing the boys' joy in their handsome faces on photo paper. I even left her there to finish cooking supper. NOTE: she didn't have her brace on either, and when I went into the great room to make up for my lack of attention, she was crawling. OOPS!!!

This might rank right up there with the time that I got home from church to find Stan home from church and neither one of us had Caleb. I think he has finally overcome the emotional scars 10 years later!

I'm sorry, but that is funny to me. :-) Sounds like something I would do. And if I haven't, I am sure I will or do something just as silly.

Pass that Mother of the Year award over to me next when you are done soaking up your praises!!

Hee hee!!
