God is Good

Did I ever tell you that I love babies and kids? ;) 
When Jackson turned about 18 months, I knew that we were done having babies.  But I felt like maybe there was something more...
I really started to pursue the idea of adoption, or even fostering.
I talked with my husband and he was not feeling the same way.  I prayed about it...and still to this day there hasn't been a "right" time.  I don't know if we will ever adopt or foster; I'm leaving that in God's hands.
But for now, one of the ways I can give back is through my art.  God has been so good to me.

If you came by and bought a pillow, thank you.  Even if you didn't, maybe you had time to pop over and take a look at sweet Davis.  I bet if you did, you probably said a little prayer that he will come home to Amy and her family soon.  I am blown away by the kindness of all of you...all of you that want to do a little part in helping bring Davis home.  Whether it's by buying a pillow, or saying a prayer, I feel the collectiveness and connectedness that this blogging community has brought to me.  So again, thank you.  :)

...and how did we celebrate the last day of school yesterday?
By swimming in the rain, of course!
There was no lightning or thunder, so don't worry.  They were safe :)

They kept saying, "this is the best day ever!"
I remember swimming in the rain as a kid...there is something magical about the experience, something that makes you feel free...
Now we need to make our summer to do list...have you done yours yet?

Swimming in the rain...I love that statement. It sounds much more fun that singing in the rain. :)
