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?
