Waiting and coughing, coughing and waiting

That's pretty much all that's happening here.

Our entire family has a virus. It originated with Leah which is the running theme this year. You know that when you hear things like, "Leah, stop licking your shoe!!" coming from the back seat, that the whole house will be down for the count soon. She doesn't seem to have the OCD qualities that I possess.

The waiting is very difficult. It has been 2 full months now that we have been waiting to know if these twins will become our children. In the grand scheme of things, that's not very long. But in my heart, it's an eternity. I am thankful for the distraction of normal life. Kids still have to get homework done, dinner has to be made, bills have to be paid, room mom duties call, etc. But every day that passes is one more day that they sit without a mommy and a daddy. And that is very difficult for me.

I am learning a lot in the wait. I am seeing my sinful heart even more than before. I am painfully aware that it's not time yet and if/when it's TIME, things will happen. God is in control and we are so very thankful for the blessing of His grace and love in our lives.
