Fun Moments

At 11:15pm, as I crawled from the bathroom into the hallway (see previous posts...) I heard Carina's voice call me from Louissa and Julia's adjacent bedroom - "Mom, are you too tired or can you come in here?"

Are you kidding? I jump at the chance to be a part of their world. So I crept closer, pushed aside the door and looked in to see three heads lined up on the pillows of the double bed. They have been sleeping together almost every night since she came home. We shared a few thoughts as they giggled and pondered at the words spoken. They pulled the comforter up to their three chins as I exited the room. Too cute.

Minutes later Rick and I settled in beneath our own warm comforter. Conversation continued in both rooms until I heard footsteps ascending the nearby stairway. I quickly explained, "That would be Tricia. David said she would be needing a bed and would arrive late."

Sure enough there is a knock on the girls' door followed by late night greetings and giggles. David made his way up as well to be sure she was settled, and soon joined in the storytelling. He has become a part of the family. All this at 11:30pm.

We listened in for a few moments. I smiled and held his arm, and sighed. "I like this house. I like having people in our house. I hope it doesn't change."

"I do, too," came his happy response.

Good to hear from you. How are you doing? I do still get the prayer alert from CFC....makes me feel like I am still somewhat connected. Never thought I would miss CFC or friends from the north country as much as I have.
Dee is right, you are blessed!

Your house is a wonderful place to be at! I miss it too!!! I doubt there is anyone who has been there and has no desire to be back!
