Her brother, #1 son, has finished running cross-country and switched to basketball, his favorite sport of all time. Was he born with a basketball in his hands, or did he just pick one up soon after?
I have to admit, I love watching my kids, and I love that they have things they are passionate about--and I hate that I've missed so many of their activities this year.
Traveling girl has gone from Japan to New Zealand and is now in Australia. She'll be home in two weeks! I can't wait to give her a great big hug!! I'll try to get a new post done about her adventures soon.
I especially liked, right now for my daughter, "A Walk. . ." with Mandy Moore playing Jamie. She is confident in herself and her faith. A plain girl who doesn't get a makeover and doesn't become popular by the end of the movie--that is rare today. Both movies, of course, deal with illness and death (they are based on novels by Sparks). Great conversation starters for a house with teenagers and a sick Mama, dealing with issues of faith and living.
And this, to end. Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you have many things to be thankful for!
So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you'll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you're already doing this; just keep on doing it. I Thessa lonians 5:11 (The Message)
