Adan started kindergarten, Luca got himself born and we are officially a family of four. I am no expert here, but it appears that my plate is full, and as much as I wanted to be busy in this fair form, having two children is much heavier than having just one. I will brag a minute and say that Marcus and I taught Adan to be as independent as possible before Luca came so that we wouldn't be stretched too thin and we have been very successful in this attempt. Yea us!
The struggle with girlfriends has made itself scarce lately, and I have felt so loved recently it makes me feel a bit unbelievable. True friendships have migrated my way and my new family has been the reaper of such great gifts. Since Luca has been born, we have had an uncountable number of people visit, bring gifts, feed us and love us, it has made me cry, literally. I have never had friends like this before, and the overwhelming surge of love has given me whiplash. It has shown up, jolted my core and allowed me to see my worth as a person and to accept the love in the abundance it's been given.
I have been saying no to God lately, or deferring a response only worthy of a yes for an infinite time later. I am ashamed at the thought of saying no to Him because what He can do when you respond with yes is life changing, world changing even. Matthew West sings this song called, Do Something, and it answers the argument people have with God about how unfair this world is. Like if God really existed, then why isn't He fixing all the problems we have in this world? Truth is, I didn't need Matthew West to tell me otherwise, my bible has educated me on the simple response needed when contributing to the ailment of our world. But sometimes as I have mentioned before, music can give me a song jump only worthy of making it a reality. And this song in particular shows up at His opportune time, not mine, and the time has come for me to say yes.
It will start here.
In the meantime, for
|Luca's Baby Room. Black and White was my official palette, but other accents made their way in and this was the bones. There are things in his room now, not pictured that have polished it off completely. All in all, we love it and so does he.|
|You remember that commercial, "show me what's in your wallet", well this is sorta the same thing, except it is Luca's diaper bag. I got this Louis as a push present when we had Adan, and used it as his diaper bag, officially it's called the Neverfull GM, and it truly is...NEVER FULL. However with Adan, I just jam packed it with anything and everything without any true organization, and this time I was on the hunt for something that I could compartmentalize and pull out in it's entirety when I needed in. Number one requirement for me was something that I could separate and organize, and viola.|
