Soon...I [really do] Promise

I'm terribly sorry to you [few] readers who check my blog awaiting some info on what my kids are doing.  [I know you are really only in it for them.]

Here's what we've been up to [and pictures that will be coming soon]...

--swimming
--playdates with friends
--taking and passing teaching test {me}
--reading
--dog sitting for friends
--learning to ride a bike with no training wheels
--learning to ride a skateboard
--a road trip to Arizona including visits with friends, packing up Nana to move to Texas, visiting the Painted Desert and the Grand Canyon
--celebrating a birthday {me again!}
--starting new jobs and ministries
--pool party and scavenger hunt
--playing outside

We've been super busy!  I just haven't had time to download pictures or make them into a cute and interesting blog post.

Please forgive me.  And, keep looking for those pictures to come soon!

Overwhelming

I could write about a million things and maybe someday I'll have time again.  For now, this blog post really stirred me.

http://bound4life.com/blog/2012/08/12/but-i-didnt-want-those-babies/

I cannot fathom the hardness of hard one must have to be at this place.  Having carried two babies in my womb to 36 weeks, praying and hoping they would be okay when they were born, this just hurts deeply.  Having lost a niece because she and her twin sister were born at 23 1/2 weeks and fought valiantly for their lives, this is hurtful.

Yet, I have to ask myself what I'm doing.  What would God have me do?  I certainly don't want to stand in judgment.  I have no idea what would drive someone to this choice.  My life has probably been very different than theirs.  How can I fight for the lives of those who have no voice but also love the one who would make such a choice?
