About Me

I have adopted 4 children from a specific orphanage in Eastern Europe and I want to see more children redeemed from that orphanage and brought into families. I want to make sure that the children who are still left behind in that place are never forgotten.

I was writing the previous post when out of the blue my husband reads me the forecast! On Saturday there is a chance of SNOW! It won't stick and it won't be gorgeous outside, but it may SNOW! There is a chance of snow showers on Saturday morning.

Later in the day there may be rain showers. I don't care one way or the other on the snow showers. I do care a lot about the SNOW SHOWERS! I may even get up early on Saturday morning just to try and see the first flakes fly of the year. (Ok, more than likely I will tell Brent to wake me if there really are snow showers. ) I really like to sleep in uninterrupted on Saturdays, but SNOW is important. SNOW is a sign of Christmas time!!

SNOW is a sign of Christmas time! (Yes, I know I said that twice. ) Snow will look pretty falling around my Christmas decorations. Snow will make me bake. Snow will make me fix chili and turn on the fireplace. Snow will make Destiny say "Wow Mommy! Look at those BEAUTIFUL snow flakes!". Snow flakes, even if it just a few, will make my kids gather at the window.

Later in the season, snow will mean that Destiny stays home from school. Snow will mean then that I get to sleep in. Snow will mean that I get to bundle them all up and play with them outside. Then I will come in and make hot cocoa and warm cookies for them to have when they come in.

I LOVE SNOW! Now if this year has tons of small snows like last year then I may get a little tired of it, but for now I AM READY FOR SOME FLAKES!

(My mommy brain can't help but wish that all my kids were here for it though. Now I may have a few tears. Doggone this waiting! Even the stuff that makes me excited still makes me sad too!)


  1. Blah! Winter. One good snow for playing and I'm ready for SUMMERTIME!!!!

    Enjoy your snow and your (ah hem) Christmas time.

  2. We didn't get any snow at all. Not even a flake did we see! I will be waiting anxiously for it whenever God chooses to give us some though! lol
