When broken things get fixed
It doesn’t always happen.
Sometimes broken things stay broken for a million different reasons.
But our God is working, He is always working – and hope, life… and even sweet, godly romance are possible!
Check our story out here.
Give up, little mouse! It’s hopeless! Or is it?
The little guy wouldn’t give up. Brian, Hannah (my niece) and I watched as the tiny mouse reached from underneath the fireplace to grab one of Savannah’s balls. He pulled, he yanked and it just wouldn’t fit.
I filmed him. Added some goofy commentary. We laughed harder (see the 20 second video Here).
That little mouse tried to pull that ball through for a good 30 minutes, convinced that either the size of the ball or the solidity of the fireplace would eventually give.
I kept laughing, Brian laughed, Hannah laughed. And eventually we went to bed, promising to buy a mouse trap in the morning.
This morning I woke up and the ball was gone. Gone. That little mouse figured it out. I have no idea how, no idea when, but while we were laughing at his foolishness, he was figuring it out. Darn if that little fighter didn’t make it happen.
I underestimated that critter.
And he taught me something.
Never give up.
You just might find a way.
No matter what big humans might be laughing at your efforts.
Mom, Mum, Mama, MOMMY!!!
And then things got crazy. Our wild adoption story.
I’ve been wanting to capture our whole adoption story in video. I’ve been working on it for weeks. I’ve cried every time I’ve edited, watched, uploaded. I love hearing other stories… and it was time to share ours. Click here to watch the journey.
Gorillas, alligators and a monster mouse – what a weekend!
It was our first adventure in a camper. It all went well, if you don’t count my mini meltdown. 🙂 We saw Gorillas, a crazy huge mouse and ate s’mores. Here’s a 5 minute snapshot of our adventures – would love your thoughts on other family building ideas!
Doesn’t get much better than this!
When she was just a child, my mom was imprisoned in Japanese concentration camps. She experienced such horror… And yet she stands today as an 80-year-old woman with joy, hope and peace. She is amazing – this is her story: Click Here.
A Toddler Love Story
Every good story starts with a toddler…
Zebra rooms, crab walk dancing and popsicles
Week Two of the new YouTube channel – with a touch of song. 🙂
Headed to the Big Screen!
Okay, so it’s actually the small screen… 🙂
Yup, I started a YouTube channel – it allows me to share stories (continue speaking) while kids are running around. After all, soon we will have three more to run after, laugh with, cry over…
So I’m inviting you to join us. We will post weekly videos of our family life. This is the first – with our goofiness in full glory. Will you join us? You can subscribe by clicking the link below the video (on YouTube), and you will receive an e-mail every time a new one is published.
Check this one out and let me know your thoughts. I hope you join us for the ride!
