Marley and Me



Watching a movie is not something I get to do a whole lot. I usually sit down and start a movie and then get interrupted by a million things. I have seen the beginning of many movies but not very many endings!

Tonight the boys and I sat down and watched Marley and Me. From start to FINISH!! One on each side of me in the rocking chair and one on Makenzie's mat on the floor! No I still don't have a couch! Note to self.... NEVER throw away couch... no matter how gross it is... before you buy another one! Yikes!

It was great just to sit with them!

It only took cleaning all afternoon to be able to enjoy that time! I need a maid!

The movie was good. I enjoyed the realness and had to laugh because minus the dog it was so true to life! Life throws us loops.. unexpected babies, injury's, marital problems, money problems, and the list could go on and on. In the end though life always seems to even out.

Right now in my life I am being propelled through MANY loops... much like being on a roller coaster. I have been very pleasantly surprised at how God is beginning to iron it all out! So many big adventures ahead! Some small and others HUGE! It is so exciting to see a glimpse of God's plan for my life and how the last 2 years have prepared my heart, and mind for what is too come! AMAZING!

So not to leave Makenzie out! She had a good day. It was probably fairly boring as the morning was spent at a meeting and the afternoon watching every one clean! I had the boys take turns playing with her so that she wasn't just laying around. I still feel bad because I did not work with her much at all today but I had to get some stuff done as we are leaving for 3 weeks next weekend!

On Tuesday Makenzie will go to Children's and have phenol put in her aductors and hamstrings. This is a block that helps loosen the big muscles so that the smaller ones can work and gain strength. She is so much looser then she was a few weeks ago but her right hip is starting to sublux so we are going to try to loosen her muscles a bit, get her off of her left side and get her on her feet as much as possible! Please pray for this and pray for her little hip! We couldn't be going to NAPA at a more perfect time! AMAZING!

Thanks for all of the thoughts, prayers, and support! Please say some extra prayers for health, safety, and healing as we prepare to go to CA. It seems like there is a lot of sickness going around and the flu will peak while we are there! Pray!

Believe... Prayer Works!
