Morgan Adventure - Day 12

There are so many things going on behind the scenes in my life right now. Lots of good things that you see here often but also some out of the blue things threatening to change up our lives (and it really has me frazzled right now).

Holiday Spirit Interruptus! 

Right now I'm going to "breathe in and out all day long. Then, after a while I won't have to remind myself to get out of bed every morning and breathe in and out...and then after a while, I won't have to think about how I had it great and perfect for a while."

Name that movie!

I'm trying not to stress out too much because I know that God will take care of things...but being a Stress Monkey comes naturally to me. I won't go into detail here but would be cool with it if you included me and my family in your prayers...Thank you in advance!

In other news...if you've been reading my blog for any length of time or have read through my archives, you might remember when I wrote about us struggling with talking to Emi about her Birth Father. She was 7 at the time and it was before the Little Ones were even a thought in our minds (they were still an unanswered prayer at that time). We hadn't had The Talk yet and I was worried she would feel rejected. At that time I got some books to use as tools/ice breakers to help me impart some of the information to Emi to get that discussion going. About a year ago, we did talk with Emi about her BF. And we all survived that discussion - Surprise! 

Over Thanksgiving Break, her Birth Mom and sisters came over for a visit and we talked again about Emi's BF and later that night Emi and I talked about him again. She wanted to know if her sisters' BF was her BF (because he is a very bad person) and I assured her that he wasn't. I told her that I didn't know him but I'd heard that he sang in his church choir. Her eyes lit up and she said "So I got my singing from him?" and I told her I thought so. (She surely didn't get that from me!) I asked her if she'd like to meet him and she said she would. So I discussed this with her Birth Mom and she suggested I friend him on FaceBook. So I did. I let him know that Emi is an amazing girl, yada yada yada and he accepted my Friend Request! I hope to set up a meeting after the crazy holidays.

I am excited about this chapter in our lives. I feel that God has stretched my family so much and some days it's overwhelming in the emotions department. Right now I'd like to slow things down just a bit.

On that note, our scheduled activity for Advent was going to be Make Popcorn Snowmen but we switched gears tonight and had pizza and watched Charlie Brown's I Want a Dog for Christmas instead.

I Want a Dog for Christmas
Snoopy's so cute!

But not as cute as Kirby

Favorite quote of the movie:  Lucy to Spike (Snoopy's brother): You're as thin as a promise!

  1. You are right. Kirby is beautiful!

    I will for sure remember you and your family in my prayers. I will also pray God's will in Emi and her meeting her dad. I hope she doesn't get hurt. But, How awesome you guys are for allowing your babies to have the opportunity of meeting their birth parents.

    Hope all gets better,


I would love to hear back from my readership (all 2 of you) so please don't be afraid to say "hi" or comment!
