First off thank you so much for the encouragement yesterday on my blog and on my Prairie Flower Farm fb. It was such a blessing!!!!!!!!!!! Truly it was. My emotions were shot by night time!!!!!! I watched. Flight Aware all day and evening long..........it was wonderful! I didn't even know this existed until now. Ladies if you have children or anyone you love for that mater, flying this is so good to know of.
We could watch the airplane as it was going from Chicago to the Ukraine. Amazing!
Also Time and Date is a mainstay on my computer. I know what time it is and the weather over where the kids are in Ukraine. Wonderful little tool.
Facebook has been good for our family during this time with Josh and Tonya being over in the Ukraine. Now with Tressa over there it will be wonderful. She loves taking pic's. All of us can keep up with what is going on and photo's shared in one place.
Skyping has been so much fun to see my kids!!!!!!
Here is a little of my journal for what is going on with the adoption of V:
One of the biggest blessings in my life was getting to stay home with all of my children! I have so many memories tucked in my heart and this morning when I read an email from my Tressy she reminded me of one. She flew by herself across the ocean..........did that go well with my soul? Not!!!!!!!!!! It was very hard for me, but I am still learning that thing called trust. God helped me big time!!!! In one of the emails she had this picture.
When my kids were little (as was done for me by my Momma), I would buy new bowls with decorations or artwork in the bottom. Then I would fill with whatever. Our children would have to eat everything that was in it to see what was at the bottom. Just one of those things handed down from one generation to another. Anyway she said the food wasn't good, but "there was a surprise under it". She said, "It made me think of you Mom". That made my heart smile! You never know the things you do that will stay in your child's life forever. I am counting the blessings ladies, this might seem like a small one..........but it is huge for me this morning. Asking the Father to bless my girl!
Josh and Tressa
So so grateful that she is safe on the other side!!!!!!!!
She is in Kiev with her brother and sister in love............finally! I tell you, having her travel by herself was a huge thing for me. I knew no matter what that God loves her with an everlasting love. I had to just trust and when I felt like I was loosing it again, I ran and jumped in HIS lap! No kidding. Sometimes the thoughts would just ambush me. It was good to have my Heavenly Father was right by my side and also know that He was by her side also.
Just thought I would give a little update as to how it is going. Thank you again for praying, I probably sound like a broken record, but I am so grateful to you all.
Hugs to your day and have a blessed SONday!
