So I think the Lord sent me Emma to lighten up my days. He sent me Seanna to be such a HUGE BURDEN lifter. Tonight she was reading the MKs flight arrival and departure times to me so I could do a spread sheet. She learned the actions to songs for School of Missions, and she made a written spread sheet of the ALC Kids by their names and ages- WOW – what a 9 year old. And NO I am not running a sweat shop. I think that my every pore is oozing out stress as they both look at me with these “Who are you “ eyes and ask how they can help.
Either that or it is the outbreak of the fever blisters on my lips :)
So here are some that I wrote down on bits of paper this week. Things that I did not want to forget.
Emma: Momma do cows lay eggs?
Cylinda: No, I don’t think so
Emma: You mean they come out whole?
Emma to John-
Daddy- I think it is very manly when men cry
Emma : Yep, I saw you cry at your Mom’s funeral and I think you are manly
Emma: Yep, I am going to marry a manly man who will cry just like you.
Emma: Mom do I need to turn into an Missionary Kid right now for you to answer me?
Cylinda: What does that mean?
Emma: You don’t hear me when I talk and I know that you listen to missionary kids.
Cylinda: Sorry I am right in the middle of something what do you need? I am listening now
See how wonderful kids are?
It is now 9:42 PM – I am thinking I need to put the laptop away and go hug them and say enough for one night.
Oh I almost forgot this-
Emma to her friend Taliah on the way home from KFC-after church on Sunday AM
Emma: I am going to be a good Mom
Emma: Yep, my Mommy told me so
Emma: Because I take great care of people. When my mommie’s friend Renee died -the one that I was named after- I sat and cried with Mommy. Did Seanna do that? No. I am going to be good at taking care of people
Emma: I am thinking of having four babies how about you?
Taliah: I don’t know. Maybe two
Thank you Jesus for my two special girls that light up my life. For a husband who allows me to be me. Who allows me to minister, leave him for weeks at a time to go and help MKs. Thank you that Joe has a new home- because who would babysit Joe for three weeks? That is a lot of pee patrol.
Good Night peeps- I am sleepy and done for today.
