Last night I had gotten both the kids to sleep and was so happy to be cutting my hubby and I a piece of cake. I had just put them on the plates, poured us each a glass of milk and was about to carry it all into the living room to have some couple time with Daniel. I heard Anderson start crying. I looked longingly at my piece of cake as I went upstairs and started rocking Anderson. I started wishing him to go back to sleep so I could enjoy that piece of cake sitting downstairs. Then I heard a small voice “Be still and know that I am God.” I was reminded just how blessed I am to get the priveledge of raising my sweet baby and how these moments are fleeting. Holding him, loving his sweet little being, and looking at his cute face made me realize how I should not be in a hurry to eat a piece of cake that will in no way contribute to my jean size. So I enjoyed the moment. Fully. I prayed for him and his big brother, prayed for Leah, and gave thanks for the many many blessings in my life. Who says Fudge cake isn’t good for you?
We are waiting for our little girl from Korea. My husband and I have been married for 6 years, have two wonderful little boys and are in the process of adopting our next child. God is good!
