My heart is full

When my daughter woke up from her nap, I made her a snack and turned on the television so I could get a start on the mountain of laundry that has accumulated over the past week. There is a station called Smile T.V. and I can rest assured that everything she sees and hears on there will be safe.

So my daughter is watching a show and I am running back and forth between the living room and my bedroom gathering clean laundry and hangers. A commercial of some sorts comes on that I have seen before but not really given it much thought. A pretty song is playing in the background as we watch some organization pass out toys to sick/dying orphans (it is not graphic...all the kids look "normal"). All of a sudden I hear Constance say, "Nap mama?" as she is watching this commercial. I looked up as I was trying to head down the hall and said, "Yes baby, some of those kids are napping." After a brief pause, I said that, "those kids were sick and that we needed to pray for them." Without skipping a beat Constance walked over to me, took my hand and bowed her head! It took me a second before realizing what she was doing! I prayed a quick prayer for the little sick kids and we went back to doing what we had been doing.

Lord, may you always give my daughter a heart of compassion for the sick, hurting and lonely. May you make her strong enough to be able to handle what she sees.

Not a whole lot going on

Well, there is not a whole lot to share!

Levi is now 2 months old! Wow these two months have flown by. He was supposed to get his 2 month well-baby check up yesterday but the van broke down and we could not make it. The next earliest date that the doctor will squeeze Levi in, is not for two more weeks. Very frustrating as I was looking forward to seeing how big he has become. He absolutely thinks his big sister is something special. Whenever she is near he finds her and just grins and babbles at her!

On a good note, our van is in working order again. The battery was completely shot. I am very thankful that I did not break down BEFORE getting to Keith's work as it was cold, raining, I did not have a cell phone and I had the two kids all by myself. It did die in the parking lot of the school.

Constance is so big and can say so many new words! She can be a demanding little thing! She is definitely a daddy's girl and gets so upset if he has to go somewhere without her. She loves her little brother and has been "caught" several times loving on him without our prompting. I think she is going to have a blast when he is able to interact more with her.
