Tuesday feels like Monday today

No Tuesday Ten. Just 'cause.

We had company all weekend - Ryan and Mindy - who are very much in love and such a sweet engaged couple. It's fun to watch them discover each other. It's also fun to recognize that I'm glad I've been married for fourteen years. Where their relationship is intense and new, our is comfortable and trustworthy. While they look longingly into each others' eyes, we smile wrinkly, knowing smiles of stability and constancy and contentment. So happy for them. So happy for us, too.

We got a phone call on Saturday night from Children of the Nations. They are the organization who cares for Tejan. They formally asked us to be his foster parents while he is here for his surgeries. We are so excited for this opportunity to love on him and be his American family. E. asked if we would be sad when it was time for Tejan to go back to Africa. I can't think about that now. I do know that God put us here and prepared our hearts for this. The timeline is still unsure. There is still a lot of paperwork... I'll keep you posted.

Lots of chores to do today... catching up from the weekend. I love this though, picking up the remnants of a full and happy weekend. I'll put on some music and clean and sing and enjoy my home.

Have a peaceful and productive day, friends. Smooches.

  5. Having people in your home is a growing experience for everyone. We are on our 10th foreign exchange student from Japan. It is always a learning experience because our culture is like no other in the world. So we have to work to adapt, as does the one visiting. I am not sure who the apadation is harder for. Have fun.

    Cathy,
    You know, I just was emailed a couple of telephone numbers to contact for foster care... we have never done it but are considering stepping out of our "comfort zone" to care for a needy child...

    I love that you shared this.
    Miss you bunches...
