Since we began our adoption process, I've found Mamas across the globe who are writing and celebrating the gift of life daily. I love reading their thoughts, and their blog titles say it all...
Making The Most of Today, Life's Little Surprises, Enjoy the Journey, One Day At a Time, and there are many more that I read. Their words inspire anyone who reads them that every day is precious.
My uncle was rushed to the hospital a week ago, while he was having a heart attack. Today, everything is looking good and has a follow-up in three months.
I met my friend, Kecia, in Ukraine during our adoption process. She didn't think she would be able to have anymore children, adopted Mia, and now is expecting twins to make a family of eight. Going from Five to Eight in a year. Amazing!
My friend, Amy, of One Day At a Time, wrote me today. "Love first, Baby. It's an incredibly, humbling thought!"
Life's A Gift! Celebrate the good, the air you breathe, one another. Celebrate. Embrace life's journey.
We live a a couple miles from the best zoo in America, but we haven't made it there with Sarah. So the weather was cooler, the sun was shining, and off we went.
She enjoyed the barn, getting down close to look at the animals. Seeing her wide-eyed wonder of amazement at every creature today, convicts me to not take anything for granted. Looking at everything through new eyes, new experiences with her is a precious gift.
But, the aquarium and manatee buildings were another of her favorites.
She followed Addy wherever Addy went, did whatever she did, and wanted to be like her Big Sister.
This weekend, Andy's taking the Big Kids on the Back To School Camp-Out all weekend. Sarah and I will celebrate a friend's wedding, their moment in time.
Life's a precious gift. Embrace your journey.
