Well, if you prayed for my relief today—your prayers were answered in the form of my sweet mom. Not only did she travel around the world with me last week to bring home our Isaac Temesgen–but she swooped in town from the state next door and surprised me! She kidnapped not 1–not 2…but 3 little munchkins. She intended to just take the older two–but Frank jumped in her arms and insisted on going to…and we all know that Nana can’t say no to Frankie baby. Truly, it couldn’t be more perfect timing…I fell asleep once today sitting up in a chair and another time just resting on the floor. Whoever said “sleep when the baby sleeps” didn’t have older toddler and preschoolers—so this weekend we’ll be able to rest up and re-energize. (Thank you mom for being an answer to prayer!)
I’ve finally had time tonight to sit down and download video from our trip, and if I get a chance–I’m going to whip up a fun little slideshow…for Isaac of course–and for us too…to remind of on days like yesterday of our calling and purpose in this world. I can’t thank you enough for your kind words, encouragment, emails of affirmation and love and especially your prayers. I feel the Father’s love through you all–and I am humbled and so thankful. Off to rest while the baby rests…wow–what a blessing!
