I am so close to figuring out how to get my pictures to share, but not quite there yet. I will just write a bit while I wait Nancy coming back from having Josephine checked out at the clinic.
I am down to my last couple days here as all are adjusting well. Nancy and Josephine came home for a family supper last night, and grandma got to hold Josie so that mom could have her meal with the family. We even had toasts to Josephine coming home and most especially safely into the world!
So with all going smoothly and dad able to take a week off next week... grandma will be heading back to the farm probably on Saturday morning. It will be good to get back home to my husband, but sad to miss all the goings on around here.
I miss sharing prayer with my husband in the mornings usually before we head out into our day. Today Pat was happy to report the nice rains we have gotten after the crops were in the ground - about a good inch! Today they will be checking on fence and on the cows and calves out on pasture. Here the kids went out right after breakfast each with a watering can and proceeded to empty the swimming pool by watering everything in sight!
Yes, God above all else!
The best hour of my week!
Oh my this is so amazing! Please treat yourself to a wonderful eye-opening article about how we are living in a domestic monastery due to our being open to LIFE! How I beam with joy and I look upon each of my girls - one is a contemplative sister, who I got to talk to yesterday for about 20 minutes her in Rome and I here in KC! The other 3 girls all have been called to marriage and being open to life have large families by today's standards! How true is this wonderful sharing about how dying to self as we raise LIGHTS and care for their every need.... we are placed in a Domestic Monastery!
The 2 three year olds are best friends!
