I have been moving at a turtle's pace lately.  I've even read two books this week:  Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See, and The Hundred Secret Senses by Amy Tan.  This should have been a week of frenzied work around the house and flower beds, before swim lessons and football start next week.  But, I am moving as if caught in a bowl of jell-o.  I'm not checking my email as often, so that's improvement, and I'm not quite as morbidly sad.  I'm just numb now. 

We did go see Cinderella at Starlight this week.  That was fun, but I was wishing Jada was there with us.  We also ate at Stix last night, which is a Japanese restaurant with hibachi style dining.  I've been yearning for Bo Lings, but this was a lovely substitution.  It was a little more fun as I reminded myself that we WILL be going to China someday to get our girl, and I relish seeing more Asian faces and look forward to tasting authentic Chinese food. 

And I sit here, day-dreaming about our little Jada instead of catching up on the bookkeeping for the farm account.  I really need to do that.  Sigh.  But I'd rather do a little photo editing....


  1. I read Snow Flower too. Don't know what else to say except to pray heaping loads of grace upon you as you wait. Hugs.

  2. You must be in the Kansas City area! We live in Belton. You must know Jerusha, since you are with Holt. I have known her for years. I am praying for you, as you wait!
