Whenever this much time has passed between writings I just start to miss it!! I love writing so much. But it does require time and right now my spare time is so limited. I so badly want to squeeze it in but when I start a new post I just realize the deep, honest, heart felt posts rarely can be put together in 20 minutes. Once in a blue moon that has happened to me but typically I need a couple hours to sit, process, edit, and read 20 times.
I have so much on my heart! God is not failing in teaching me new things and refreshing my mind on stuff I’ve known for years. I’ve started two other blogs but they just aren’t ready and yet I still desperately want to post something. Maybe it’s because it’s Friday night and Jason is still at work and the kids are settled down, some asleep, one just woke up from a nap at 7:30(what?!?!) I’m past the point of wanting to clean or fold laundry and well, lets call it what it is, I’m bored! So this will be a mixed bag sort of update.
Our life is crazy right now. I just can’t even get into it. The boys have started going to therapy which is such an unexpected blessing for me. Their therapist is a Christian and a fellow foster mom. She gets it and I love her. We’ve been given a RAD (Reactive Attachment Disorder) diagnoses for our three year old and he seems to get more rad every day, let me tell you. Then our two year old…. well, one minute he’s the sweetest most precious toddler you’ve ever seen and the next he’s spitting on you or pulling your hair. Nothing Lil John can’t fix though because I kid you not, when I play “Turn Down For What” his mood totally changes and he’s back to a silly cute dancing machine. How did this get on my iTunes??? Don’t judge me. It’s like that episode of Friends when Ross and Rachel sing “Baby Got Back” to baby Emma because it gets her to quit crying. You just do what you gotta do and sometimes you sing questionable rap music. YEEEEAAAH!!!
Fall has arrived and we are enjoying all the glorious activities. Calebs class had a pumpkin patch field trip and we are all very excited for Halloween. It’s gonna be quite a collection of characters this year. K is carrying on the Big Al tradition and he knows exactly what an elephant says. 😉
We are becoming closer with our new church family week by week. I recognize Gods tremendous grace and love for our family in the timing of bringing this church into our lives. When the days are hard and I think I’m about to fall apart I find myself on Sunday morning or Wednesday evening surrounded by Gods people and sense his strength in numbers. I have ladies I can text and meet with and ask for prayer and in this I feel Gods mighty hands upholding me. We can’t do this alone and God knew that. How good of him to perfectly time all this.
I hope to write more another time. And I know this is not very put together or poetic or deep but I just had to write something. Gotta keep the blog alive! Love to you all!!!
