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!

Blessings

If you are a Facebook friend of either Brian or me, you know he broke his ankle two weeks and two days ago...also known as sixteen days ago.

If you are not a Facebook friend or one of us...Brian broke his ankle two weeks and two days ago...also known as sixteen days ago..

I want to blog about it.
Mostly because we have talked about it as a blog post since we were in the ER that night (watching the Auburn-Arkansas State game on the TV on our "room").

I will blog about it...for posterity's sake...or so someone else can laugh at our expense...

But there just hasn't been time.

Life changes in the blink of an eye.

And I have discovered that although I used to "do it all" for G and myself...I can't do it all now...

I hate admitting that. I should be able to take care of my family.

But I have realized my limitations.

Which is why we are so blessed to have friends and co-workers who have provided us with meals when we have needed them most.

We have enjoyed chili and spaghetti sauce from Tracey (and still have her stuffed pepper soup in the freezer). Christine sent us home from choir last week with Cincinnati chili and homemade salted caramel brownies. Sarah brought us BBQ chicken and rice on Friday. Tonight, Paulette brought us a homemade chicken pot pie and some of her cake pops for dessert.

So my family has been well fed.
And I have been a little less overwhelmed by everything else.
And we are so very thankful for what our friends have done for us.
It means so much.
