So my darling husband and I are foster parents to two girls… and those girls will be officially our adopted daughters, come February 13. Woohoo.
I was with Big Sis today, at a Christmas Tree Farm with her 1st grade class… and I was talking to a few other parents and teachers about the adoption, and I hear, “You two are just the most wonderful people ever.” And it sort-of drives me crazy. I’m not looking to be wonderful. I’m looking to INSPIRE. So that other people will see the need and do what we’re doing….
Or that others will see ANOTHER need and address that one.
I don’t want praise, because all glory is God’s. What I’d like, though, is that if you think anything about me is praiseworthy, pay it forward by doing a kind deed for someone else.
Whether seen or unseen, God sees the good deed.
Tomorrow we’re giving homemade cookies, candy, and lip balm to our garbage men. Little Sis is in LOVE with the big truck and the fact that they honk at her every week.
Mr. Wonderful and I are in a bit of a rough patch at the moment, but with prayers and God’s direction, we are both confident that things will come around quickly.
