A glimpse into the life of me

We have been hit with a virus and are now on kid # 3 being down for the count.

The victim this week is Leah so she stayed home yesterday from school because she just wasn't feeling herself.

She did normal things like lay around, watch tv, play on the ipad, etc.

She got worse last night, so I was sitting with her on the couch when I got a text.

My friend said, "Did you see Leah's post in Pinterest?"

Ummm, My Leah?

She said, "Yes!! Go look at your handmade gifts board."

And this is what I found......

Apparently she wasn't too sick to figure out how to take silly pictures of herself and upload them to Pinterest.

Did I mention she just turned 7?

Someone help me!!

I really try to be real and open about my life. 

I want those around me to know that I am human, I struggle and needs God's grace just as much as everyone else. 

I am not super woman. 

Recently I had a friend walk away from our friendship because of the hard truth that I shared about adoption. As hurtful as that is, I am not sorry that I shared. I wouldn't be a very good friend if I didn't share the whole truth. And the worst part would be for anyone to miss the beautiful restoration that God is doing in our lives through this adoption process. It's messy and hard, but that's where redemption happens! In the pit of despair, we reach out to the Father that allowed the crucifixion of his son for our mess. I share because I don't want anyone to miss that.

I recently shared my STORY over at A safe place to share
