Thanks for stopping by! We were a family of three, until we added one more (cat, that is), making us a family of four. In 2012, we added four more...one husband, two girls, and a dog. We have a full plate as a party of eight!

Adoption, blended families, pets, school, running...it's all here. Pull up a chair and read a while. After you do, please leave a little comment love! It makes me happy...and y'all know...if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy...at least at our house!

The Sweetest Note Ever!

Sorting through Gloria's homework folder tonight revealed the following:

  • math homework
  • weekly homework assignment sheet
  • word lists for the upcoming class spelling bee
  • free tickets to some kind of circus show in a few weeks (wish it was the "real" circus...would love to take her to that one!"
Nothing really out of the ordinary.

But then...

Then I found the sweetest note, tucked ever so carefully into the front pocket of her folder.

Dear Gloria,
You fill my bucket all the time.  And I really enjoy playing with you on the playground.

Oh.
My.
Goodness.

So sweet.

Sniff...

This note has been bestowed a place of honor on her bulletin board...right in the middle, slightly overlapping her picture of her favorite Auburn Tigers-turned-Carolina Panthers football player.

That's b-i-g stuff.
B-I-G, I tell you.

But still oh, so sweet.

Julia's school uses the filled bucket language as well! Nothing better than knowing another human being sees the remarkable child you are raising (-;
