Silent Waiting

Please excuse my construction! Same site new look!!!

Busy, busy, busy!

This morning we woke up to MORE snow! I am now officially sick of winter!

Despite the snow I loaded all of the kids up and headed to church. Then it was to the mall to do a bit of shopping.

My friend came and picked the boys up from the mall and took them home. So Makenzie and I had a girls shopping afternoon! Fun stuff.... well it was until we hit the third or fourth store in the outdoor mall....in the snow!

On the way home we picked up some food to feed the brood that was awaiting us.

I got spent the afternoon with one of my good friends. The boys spent a good portion of the afternoon building a snow fort in the back yard and the rest running circles around the house! Did I mention I am sooooo sick of winter?!!

Tonight once again I am so overcome with joy for the progress Makenzie has made and continues to make.

Makenzie may not be sitting or walking but she is come so far in many, much more important, but less visible ways to the untrained eye.

Again tonight she did not want to go to bed. She whined in the bedroom, so I turned around and walked out the door and she stopped. As soon as I went back to the bed and laid her down the screaming began. This is just the most heartwarming thing...knowing that she gets it! She is in there. I have known this for a long time but she physically shows it more and more every day!

As I laid in bed with Makenzie, in the dark silence, I was overtaken with emotion. She belted out her part of Jesus Love Me. She told me I love you. I asked her if she was going to get down and she rolled of of my chest and onto the bed. I laid there for a moment, in the still and quiet waiting for Makenzie....I wasn't sure what I was waiting for... but I waited...and I am so happy I did. She looked at me, smiled, and reached out her beautiful little hand and laid it on my cheek! TEARS!!! I just love that girl!!!

Overwhelmed with Joy! What a GREAT day!
