Life has finally caught up to me and I have been under the weather. I am worn out and am dreaming of a 48 hour escape in my bedroom without any interruptions! LOL, not really I would miss my kids! Perhaps just a solid 8 hours of quiet time! Here are a few musings of the past few days from my kids that I wanted to keep fresh.
I tend to be a mothering monkey at times and spend few to many minutes "preening" over my children or as they call it "picking" on their skin, hair, ect. We have a rash of "bumpies" at our house that this mommy monkey can't seem to leave alone. Call it one of my many OCD tendencies. Well anyways, one of the nights this week....Hope had heard me bribe her brother Carter over something. So at the begining of one of my obsessive moments, Hope in her deep little voice completely serious says while I am trying to pick on her...."MOMMMMY....I want a dollar (pause) .........and a penny(pause) .......and a diamond and thennnn you can finish!." I better start praying more specifically for this girls future husband!!! Anyways, I got quite a kick out of it.
On a little more serious note, my sweet Carter has been having some sad moments lately. He is really frustrated over having to stop and check his blood sugar before eating something he is really excited about. He has been saying many times lately that he doesn't like being the only 7 year old boy he knows with diabetes and wants to meet a friend his age that has diabetes as well. He is tired of feeling and being "different" than his friends and standing out. Carter and I have begun to pray for opportunities for him to meet a friend his age that has diabetes. So please join me as I lift up his request and pray for God to bring an encourager into Carter's life and opportunities to meet and know other children with Juvenile Diabetes as well.
