Another day closer to having my kids back

Good Morning. My day started with a walk with Timothy and Sally, my dog, and before that we had some fresh pressed juice (are you proud of me, Carie?). Jason's first day at work yesterday went well. After our walk and reading my emails I got on the phone with my 2 Senators, and tried to call the White House (busy signal) and the Ambassador Rice. What a mess we are in, now they want to join the UN treaty - the Rights of the Child. Which means we would give up more and more of our Freedom. I was never into Politics until now. I may not make a difference, but at least I tried.
OK, I worked on my blog all day (almost) yesterday to put on a slideshow of my photes. Finally I got it but now I lost my template, which means my blog looks really boring. Help! ;)

Another hot day

2 old friends, wrecked out together! Oh what a wonderful day, Timothy and Jackson on their way to the Mall in Independence.

Timothy and his Pa are relaxing on the swing

Another good friend, Jacob, born April 27, 2009

Good Morning, it will be hot again.... Anyway, let me just jot down a few thoughts. After reading the blog of a very dear friend of mine (Liz, that is you) it occured to me that I don't spend enough time on my blog. By the way, Liz is my diaper-buddy from the South. Clothdiapers that is. She is also my Amish-fan friend. Liz is married to an Air-Force-man and is the mother of 2 cuddly little boys. Jackson, the baby, is Timothy's best buddy, he is 10 days older. Liz is the one who got me started on blog. I am still not good at it, poohoo.

By the way, today is Jason's first day back at work after his surgery. I pray that he will be okay.

The other blog-friend, who inspires me a lot, especially when it comes to healthy eating and natural childbirth, is Carie. She reminded me than I need to write updates about Jason's recovery. Carie is the mom of 5 sweet children, my kids best friends, and the wife of an Army-officer. They are missionaries to Mexico as of next year. Poohoo, I will miss them. If you are a prayer warrior, please put them on your prayer list. I know they would appreciate it.

The third one in the group of bloggers is Kelly, mom of 3 handsome boys and the wife of an Air-Force-officer. She is also a fan of the Amish-store. I am sorry that she has to leave. But that is Military life. I guess.... One thing is for sure, the Lord will always be with us, no matter how often we have to move.
A thought for the day: Life is too short and precious to live for self. Live everyday as it would be the last one, live it in the presence of God. I am reading a wonderful book, written by Elizebeth George, "A woman after God's own heart". It is very inspiring.

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward Psalm 127:3
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. Ephesians 5:33
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives. While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. I Peter 3:1-2
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation. I Peter 1:15

I hope everyone is having a great day, stay out of the heat. ;)

Well, I guess these are more than just a few thoughts. LOL

Jason's surgery June 3, 2009

Timothy loves the swing on the playground

OK, here are some news on my hubby: His back is still hurting, but the surgery went well. His doc sends him back to work tomorrow, which is Tuesday, the 23. Which is too early. But this is America, right? Work, work, work.
I miss my big kids. They will be back home this weekend. Sometimes people say, kids are hard to raise, or they are stressful.... blah, blah.... I guess they never saw the sweetness in their laughing eyes, or the awesome babble of a baby, or the wonderful warm feeling that sweeps over you when the baby stretches out his arms for you and your big kids tell you that you are the best mom in the whole wide world. I feel for these moms who never have time for their kids and never experience the fulfillment that comes with being a mom. Other than accepting my Lord and Savior I never made a better decision than having children. And of course to marry my wonderful hubby.

Here is an update: Jason made it through surgery all right. He is getting better, still on painmedication. We will see the doc on Tuesday to find out when he has to go back to work.
