In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

The Alli Funny for the Month

Today, everybody was outside and I decided to try and practice a song I am learning  for the Christmas program.   It is a work in progress.... but while I was practicing, Alli came back with Sarah from her walk. She had no idea I was recording it so I could catch all the bad spots.   She came in at perfect timing of "You're here! I'm holding you so near!".... I could barely keep it together. She broke into dancing. (wish you could see it from the video, then proceeded to hand me mail, hold my nose to see how I could sound differently, and then finally realized that the red light on the camera was on.  So : Presenting Alli, ala' natural! :) (she appears at minute 2:05, if you want to skip all that singing) :)
Lots of work to do before Christmas!

so sweet! and from the last post... I am so glad that she feels so safe at night that you can walk into her room and she can sleep through it. My last foster kid would startle every time I stepped in the room to check on them.

De, our newly adopted 13 y.o. son can now be awakened without a startled response. It IS am important milestone, IMO!

CM...how I wish I were THERE! :(

It was nice to FEEL like I were there with you thru this video, though! Glad Alli is doing SO well.

Watching this, I was thinking that if no one else steps forward to write a story about your life, I am going to have to roll up my sleeves and get to work on a script myself.

<3 you, Sister!
