I was taking pictures of the girls, and they wanted to take pictures of their mama. Well, I think they did a pretty good job, don't you? And, how often is Mama in the photo?
Ellie's physical therapist recommended we get her a tricycle. Does she look proud of it, or what? We bought it on Friday night. On Saturday morning, the girls came into my room. Josie-Tatum was pushing Ellie, who was already "suited up," helmet and all. She was ready to go. It took most of the day, but she finally began to make progress pedaling!
Just playing around with the girls. They were too cute in their pink dresses. And, yes, that is red drink around Ellie's lips. Guess what they had to drink in Children's Church. Guess what stayed on her mouth for the next 12+ hours. ;)
Saving the Best For Last
A young adult friend walked over Saturday. He has promised Josie-Tatum $10.00 from his paycheck each week. He was delivering once again. Josie-Tatum was not at home, but Ellie was outside with me. I took his ten dollar bill, thanked him, and put it in my pocket. When he left, Ellie reached inside the "trunk" of her tricycle and pulled out a dollar. She said.........
"I got that dollar for Josie, so she can take care of orphans."
Now, that has to put a smile on your face!! I have been praying for Josie-Tatum to grow spiritually as we endeavor on our first ever out of country mission trip. I see now that God is working in Ellie's life, too, as she watches prepare.
Thank you all for your prayers!!!
