13 years ago today...

a dream came true. I became a mother when Elijah Caleb was born. For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a wife and mother. My family truly is my sweet spot in life. 

We sadly lost our first baby to miscarriage. I can remember being in prayer one day after the miscarriage looking for some comfort from my heavenly Father. I opened my bible and saw this verse:

"...about this time next year you will hold a son in your arms."

2 Kings 4:16

Needless to say I was filled with hope that this was a word for me. I happen to be an emotional person so I waited expectantly to see. I wrote the date down in my bible next to the verse. That was December 29th, 1994 and Elijah was in my arms on December 27th, 1995.

I love to tell this story. I love being a mother. I love Elijah who is such a wonderful son who makes his family proud! Thank you Father for this precious gift! Happy Birthday Elijah!

The Boot, thankfulness...dare I say hope

Dear Ones:

First I wanted to give an update on my Elijah. He had his appointment with the orthopedic surgeon last Thursday. The Dr. said he mostly needs rest. His condition (bone marrow edema) is more than likely caused from overuse and he has some growth plates also contributing. He is to wear a special boot for the next two weeks and then can go back to normal shoes. He is to have no activity for 4 weeks and if not better by then will need to see the specialist again. Let me tell you this is not easy for my sport loving competitor. I am so appreciative for all the prayers that have gone up for his healing.
Next, I wanted to share some things I am very thankful for. It is kind of hard to know where to begin or even how much to say. I have always wanted to be authentic with my blog and this adoption journey. Not to long ago though, Eric and I received a very hurtful and discouraging interaction, where all this is concerned and I honestly have been very guarded ever since. So as I risk vulnerability again I really want to express some thanks. First pictured below is another love gift we were given to help us bring our daughter home. I am once again so in awe of how people can be moved to aid and support us. I almost just feel stunned. The words thank -you feel to small to express my hearts emotions. 

Dare I hope....that Mercy WILL come home.

The Lord has blessed our family tremendously with AMAZING friends. With people who have stood by us through tears, dashed hopes, questions, new directions, ups and downs. Honestly there are times I am just sick of it all. Sick of the roller coaster ride. So I can only think those around us must be too, but friends, true wonderful friends stay close in good and bad times. I have even made new friends on this journey through the world of blogging and I am so thankful for their understanding. Oh so thankful. God is good...this I am learning no matter what my circumstances are and no matter what the facts say... that is the truth. Thank you precious , precious brothers and sisters in Christ. You know who you are. I love you

The final picture I wanted to share today shows an early Christmas present I received from one of those TRUE friends. I hope you can read the words. It so makes me think of my friend and all those I have talked about here today. If you can't read it it says " A True Friends warms you with her presence, trusts you with her secrets, remembers you in her prayers."

"A friend loves at all times." Provernbs 17:17

Now I have been wanting to post about our Christmas tree adventure this year but with Eric out of town last week I just never found the time.
The above shot shows the tiny pick up truck we borrowed to go get our tree. Eric looked like he was driving a toy. The tree took up the whole back end.
The boys could not wait to dig out all the decorations. We get them each a new ornament each year to represent their year and it is always fun talking about the memories behind them as they go up.
Once we had the tree all decorated and watered we could not get the star straight well in our attempts to get it just right the whole thing came down on top of Eric and it completely soaked him. It was a small miracle that only 2 ornaments were broken. We are hoping that the timber situation will be a once in a lifetime one. It will be a late entry for our laugh box on New Years.
The tree is back up again and tied to a screw in the wall. It looks beautiful.

Elijah's MRI

Dear Ones:

Last Friday my Elijah had an MRI for some problems he has been having with his foot. A prior x-ray showed no signs of a fracture. The MRI showed 2 abnormalities which the doctor called Bone Marrow Edema. We are waiting for an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon to get his opinion and take the best coarse of action. If you think of him please pray for my boy :)

I hope to post Christmas tree pics some time this week... Let's just say it was an experience this year.

First snow/ Jody's TAG

Dear Ones:

We woke up to some snow this morning. I LOVE snow days when school is cancelled and I get to be home with my boys. Today was just a 2 hour delay, and I had to open up the salon so it wasn't my usual glee when I see the white stuff but still pretty none-the-less.

Here is a TAG I got from my friend Jody, You have to find the fourth picture in your fourth file folder and explain it. Mine was a picture of my Elijah 3 years ago at his birthday party. For some reason I had a picture of him with a stick of gum...funny.
