I have been thinking a lot lately about the little girl we hope to adopt. Where is she now? Is she born yet? Are her parent's sick?
I pray for both her and her birth family every day. I try not to think about the fact that our next child will have to face a tragic loss in order to join our family. In my head I understand that their is nothing I can do about this fact, however, my heart aches at times thinking of our little girls parents and the grief they must suffer to give us this wonderful gift.
I know in my heart I will never be able to forget about them.
After we ran our errands, picked up the kids at school, and hubby ran to a doctors appointment, I got this great idea to escape from it all for a while.
Tyler (14) leaves for Washington D.C. with his eighth grade class in a little over a week and their were some things I really needed to pick up for him.
Dave told me to just leave and go get what ever I needed to. He said "take your time, go shopping".
Girls, aren't those some of the sweetest words any man could say to his wife?
I took him up on it and escaped for over four hours.
Heaven, I tell you, pure Heaven.
I got to stroll the aisles of Target ALL BY MY SELF. I went to Linens and Things and nobody said "When can we leave, I don't like this store"?
I looked at every Fall and Halloween decoration that I wanted to. I looked at purses, shoes, linens, and appliances.
You know what?
I had a blast.
Thanks, honey, for my little break. It felt like a whole weekend away.
You are the best!!
p.s. I hear the spaghetti dinner you whipped up was mighty fine!
